Available in showrooms later this month, the new Corsavan features a bright new exterior, high-class interior and an improved chassis.
The outgoing model has sold over 34,000 in the UK with the 1.3 CDTi being the most popular engine option. Over 13,000 have been sold at retail to small businesses.
Last year was the strongest sales year for Corsavan since 2008. The Corsavan’s main rival in the small compact sized commercial vehicle segment is the Fiesta Van.
“Vauxhall’s all-new Corsavan is stylish, comfortable and affordable to run,” said Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s Head of Commercial Vehicle Brand. “Like its award-winning predecessor, it will hold massive appeal to van drivers, small businesses, fleet decision-makers and company drivers alike.”
The new Corsavan has a class-leading payload, up by 21kg versus the outgoing model to 571kg, and a flat loading capacity of 920 litres. Maximum loadspace height is also best-in-class at 921mm.
But at just 4.02 metres long and 1.94 metres wide, it’s compact enough to fit in to tight parking spaces and negotiate the narrowest of city streets.
All-new Corsavan is also equipped with a range of Euro-6 compliant petrol and diesel engines, offering economy up to 85.6mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 87g/km.
The Corsavan will make it UK debut at the CV Show in at Birmingham’s NEC (14th – 16th April 2015).Manufacturer Profile Latest Car News
