But this is no ordinary Vivaro, oh no. Our particular model is the long wheelbase crew-cab variant, which features seating for six people (and plenty of legroom) plus a full bulkhead and a 4.2 cubic metre loadspace in the back.
This particular vehicle won’t suit all fleet needs obviously, but it is a fine example of the way van manufacturers are rushing to fill all the various niches.
They know they have to because if a fleet buyer demands a particular type of vehicle and the manufacturer can’t offer it off the shelf, the buyer will simply scoot off round the corner to a rival dealer which can fill the need immediately.
The Vivaro arrived in a smart silver livery with just 104 miles on the clock, so we’ll have to wait until the next issue of Fleet Van to discover exactly how frugal it is on diesel.
But one thing’s for certain – common rail diesel motors don’t come much sweeter than the 1.9-litre unit under the Vivaro’s bonnet.
These units come with 80bhp or 100bhp on tap – our van is the more powerful model, which means it also gets a six-speed gearbox.
The motor is still pretty tight as yet, but even still, it will power on up to highly illegal speeds without too much of a problem.
There is already of small queue of testers waiting to get their hands on the Vivaro, so in the next issue we’ll be presenting their views, along with more details and pictures of the vehicle.
