Vauxhall's Combo small van is now available to order, with prices beginning at £15,630 exc VAT.
Arriving in Vauxhall showrooms in December, the Combo is based on all-new architecture and is offered in a selection of variants, including short wheelbase, long wheelbase and crew van.
Fuel economy has been improved by at least 16% compared to the previous model with CO2 emissions falling 17%.
It can carry a load volume of up to 4.4 cu m, and a payload of up to a tonne. Items up to 3,440mm, such as pipes and ladders, can be carried.
The Combo is available as a standard (4.4m) or XL version (4.75m) – both with a choice of two or three front seats. It can also load up to two Euro pallets due to the increased distance between the wheel arches.
Long items, such as wooden planks can be stowed at an angle via the optional roof hatch. A sensor-based overload indicator is also available. It allows the driver to check the vehicle is not overloaded
In crew van body style, up to five occupants can be accommodated, while the load is stowed behind a partition wall. In addition, the rear bench can be folded down and the partition moved behind the front seats if required.
Combo is available with a variety of turbocharged, direct-injection petrol and diesel engines which offer CO2 emissions from 109g/km and fuel economy up to 67.3mpg.
Combo 75PS and 100PS diesels have been tested against the Euro 6B emissions cycle. The 130PS diesel is already compliant to Euro 6D TEMP, which is not required for commercial vehicles until September 2019.
The range is available with five or six-speed manual gearboxes or, optionally, a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
Smart driver assistance and safety features available in the Combo include lane keep assist, forward collision alert with pedestrian detection, drowsiness indicator, traffic sign recognition and autonomous emergency braking.
