Bigger, better Combo van for city deliveries

VAUXHALL has announced details of its totally new Combo van, which it claims has greater load capacity and more car-like qualities. The firm believes the Combo, to be launched in the autumn, will be a key player in the inner city delivery van market, with the choice of three engines - a 87bhp petrol and 65 or 75bhp diesel.

Options include air conditioning, electric windows, central locking and 'infotainment' systems. Combined fuel consumption for the 1.6-litre petrol engine is 32.6mpg, with a claimed 48.7mpg for the 1.7-litre DI 16v and 1.7-litre DTI 16v turbo diesel versions.

Load volume is increased to 3.2 cubic metres from 2.7 in the outgoing models, with the length of load area up to 2.7 metres with the front seat folded down. The maximum payload weight gets a hike of 137kg to 810kg. Prices have not yet been confirmed.
