More practicality. More choice. More clever features. And with class-leading fuel economy. Discover the ultimate all-rounder.
Inside, the new Vivaro is bristling with all the latest technology, on a par with the driver assistance systems and connectivity that is usually only seen in passenger cars. The Vivaro is available with a Head Up Display so that drivers can see all important information and keep their eyes on the road. The additional front-camera and radar-based systems include Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Drowsiness Alert, which advises the driver to take a break after two hours of non-stop driving, or by monitoring the driving behaviour, warns of drowsiness via visual and acoustic signals. Adaptive Cruise Control, which adjusts the speed according to that of the preceding vehicle, without actively braking. Forward Collision Alert, which gives a two-level warning of a potential front impact. Automatic Emergency Braking, which can avoid a crash or reduce its effects.
The Vivaro features ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear aprons. They warn the driver of obstacles when parking and monitor the side blind spot. Depending on the equipment level, the rear-view camera image is displayed either in the interior mirror or on the seven-inch display.
The Multimedia and Multimedia Navi infotainment systems come with a large seven-inch touchscreen. Both feature phone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Multimedia Navi additionally features European navigation with 3D view.
A multitude of seating adjustments, some of them electric, including lumbar support and armrest, mean the driver-oriented cockpit is as comfortable as that of a passenger car.
The all-new Vivaro range features an array of powerful yet frugal engines and smooth transmissions, for low running costs, reduced emissions and maximum efficiency. All are validated and approved to Euro 6D Temp (Euro 6.2) which utilises the more real world representative WLTP emissions cycle. WLTP also takes into consideration options, and the impact of payload.
On the entry level 1.5D (100PS) engine, torque has been improved to 270Nm. Towing has also been improved with up to 2,500kg available. Additionally the factory-fitted tow bar option comes standard with Trailer Stability Control (TSC). TSC uses an electronic stability programme to dampen the vibrations of the trailer as necessary. If severe vibrations are detected which indicates an unsafe and unstable driving condition, then the system will slow the vehicle to a critical pace.
With a maximum cargo capacity of 6.6m3, the new Vivaro has a payload of up to 1,458kg, 200kg more than its predecessor. The same applies to towing weights: the maximum trailer load is 2,500kg, 500kg more than the outgoing model.
Objects up to 4.02m long can be stowed securely in the 5.30m version thanks to Flex Cargo, an optional load-through flap under the front passenger seat. Adding to its office on wheels credentials, the FlexCargo also allows the back of the middle seat to fold down to become a table for documents, a notebook or a tablet.
Automatic side sliding doors are also available for the first time on Vivaro. A foot movement towards the sensors on the vehicle is all that is needed to open the door. Stability and safety on a variety of slippery surfaces – mud, sand or snow – is provided by the advanced IntelliGrip traction control system (optional) including the work-site set-up comprising higher ground clearance and underbody protection.
