The new Vauxhall Vivaro is a British-made success story for the firm

The new Vauxhall Corsavan has made its official debut at this year’s Commercial Vehicle show where it attracted a lot of attention.

Vauxhall is now the only volume van maker in Britain and they took the opportunity of the 2015 show to display the new Corsavan alongside its full line-up of Vivaro vans.

In addition, Vauxhall has also announced it will offer Vivaro buyers an in-house sign writing and wrapping service as well as a bespoke conversion and racking facility.

These services are now available to fleet customers and from the summer they will be available to small and medium-sized businesses too.

The firm says that customers will save cash because the work will be done as the vans roll off the production line – pricing will be ‘competitive’ other work will be covered with a three-year warranty.

The flat loading capacity is up to 920litres and owners will find that the firm has introduced lots of safety features including six airbags and active safety systems too.
