Vauxhall Vivaro and Movano Combi gain new Euro6 engines

Vauxhall's mid-size and large Combi passenger vans get Euro6 compliant diesels and new optional kit for 2016

Vauxhall has announced a raft of improvements to its Vivaro and Movano Combi and minibus ranges for 2016. Available to order now, the passenger-carrying vans gain more efficient diesel engines, additional safety kit and extra comfort features. 

The Vivaro Combi can now be ordered with two new turbodiesel powertrains that comply with Euro 6 emissions regulations. A new entry-level 94bhp 1.6 CDTi diesel starts at £27,094, offering 260Nm of torque, claimed economy of 44.8mpg combined and CO2 emissions of 164g/km.

What is Euro6?

For another £970 you can have the BiTurbo version of the same unit, which brings an extra 29bhp and 60Nm of torque. Despite the extra output, claimed fuel economy improves, with the Combi hitting 49.6mpg combined and emitting 149g/km of CO2. Both engines come with start/stop as as standard.

The 2016 Vivaro also comes with new optional extras including keyless entry and start, a tablet holder and Vauxhall's improved Intellilink infotainment and navigation system with DAB radio.

The larger Movano, available in nine-seat Combi and 17-seat Minibus spec, gains a new EU6 2.3-litre BiTurbo diesel engine.  Two version are available: a base 143bhp unit with 360Nm of torque, and a 168bhp unit with 380Nm of torque. Both are capable of 42.8mpg combined and CO2 emissions of 173g/km.

Both also get start/stop and are matted to a six-speed manual transmission. The Movano can also be ordered with a driver assistance package, that adds high beam assist, lane departure warning, fog lights and an on-board computer.
