Vauxhall has officially unveiled the all-new Vivaro van at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham. Due to be built at Vauxhall’s plant in Luton, prices for the new Vivaro will start from £22,918.33 (excluding VAT), with first deliveries expected by summer this year.

It’s based on the PSA Group’s EMP2 platform, which it shares with the Toyota ProAce and Peugeot Expert. This provides it with a payload of 1,400kg and a towing capacity of 2,500kg, which is a respective 200kg and 500kg more than its predecessor.

It’s being powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine available in two states of tune, producing either 99bhp or 118bhp – the latter providing provisional economy figures of 57.6mpg.

Three body styles will be available, including a panel van, a crew cab and a platform chassis. Both short- and long-wheelbase models will be available, with the larger model bearing a maximum load capacity of 6.6 cubic metres (233 cubic feet) and, thanks to a load-through flap under the passenger seat, enough space to transport objects up to 4.02m (13ft 2in) long.

Buyers will also have the choice of three trim levels. The entry-level Edition model comes as standard with dual sliding doors, driver and passenger airbags, cruise control and a speed limiter.

Mid-range Sportive models are better equipped, offering body-coloured door mirrors, handles and side mouldings, as well as an alarm, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a sound-dampening windscreen and thickened side-glazing.

Other features include forward collision assist, a head-up display and automatic emergency braking.

Other updates over the previous Vivaro include optional automatic sliding doors (operated by kicking your foot under the van’s sills), a seven-inch infotainment system, parking sensors, an optional rear-view camera and an optional work-site chassis set-up with higher ground clearance and underbody protection.

The Koreans, for whatever reason, don’t conform to the car industry’s standardised four-year product cycles. So, just three years after it launched, we find ourselves sat in the driver’s seat of a refreshed Kia Niro.

There’s some new trim inside, as well as improved interior tech options, too. • Best hybrid cars on the market While it’d be a stretch to suggest this car is instantly recognisable as the facelifted car, the styling is certainly sharper than before.
