Vauxhall Introduces New Fiat-based Combo Van in Britain

Pricing for the Opel Combo's British twin that will be sold under the Vauxhall brand will start from £14,703.33 on the road (excluding VAT) for the L1H1 2000 1.3CDTI 16v (90PS) model when the new panel van goes on sale in February of 2012.
The Opel/Vauxhall Combo is the result of a partnership between GM Europe and the Fiat Group for the supply of several commercial vehicles including the Combo that is based on the Fiat Doblo. The Chrysler Group will also sell a rebadged commercial version of the Doblo in the U.S. and Canada under the Ram brand.
The Vauxhall panel van is available in two lengths (4.39m and 4.74m), two heights (1.85m and 2.10m), two gross vehicle weights (2,000kg / 4,410 lbs and 2,300kg / 5,070 lbs), two trim levels and with four diesel engine choices.
The engine range includes a 1.3-liter CDTi and a 1.6-liter CDTi, each with 90-horses as well as a 1.6 CDTi variant with 105PS and a more powerful 2.0 CDTi delivering 135PS.
The 1.3 CDTi engines are offered with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.6 CDTi and 2.0 CDTi come with a six-speed manual transmission. As an option, the 1.6 CDTi is also offered with Vauxhall’s ’Tecshift’ automated five-speed manual transmission.
Aside from the models equipped with the Tecshift transmission, all the other powertrains are offered with an available Start/Stop system that lowers fuel consumption and emissions.
Standard features across the range include remote central door locking, full-steel bulkhead, trip computer, electric power steering, driver’s airbag, ABS with EBD, CD/radio and a 12 volt power outlet in the dashboard.
The newly introduce Sportive trim level adds air conditioning, metallic paint, body-colour bumpers and door mirrors, nearside sliding door, driver seat with height adjustment, armrest and lumbar support and full wheel covers.
