Vauxhall puts new Corsavan on sale


Vauxhall’s latest all-new Corsavan has gone on sale at prices ranging from £11,858.

The small van has a lot to live up to, its predecessor having last year enjoyed its strongest sales since 2008 – more than 34,000 of the outgoing van have been sold in total with 13,000-plus being bought by small businesses.

Looking to challenge the Ford Fiesta van, the new Corsavan has revised styling to the exterior, a redesigned interior and new colour options.

Practicality is improved by a payload increase by 21kg to 571kg and a flat-loading capacity of 920 litres. Vauxhall also claims a best-in-class loadspace height at 921mm, while load volume is 0.92m3.

As in the Corsa car the van offers a completely new range of Euro-6 compliant powertrains, stretching across a 1.2 petrol unit of 70hp and 1.3 diesels of 75 and 95hp.

Economy and emissions are improved with the best official figures 86mpg and 87g/km. All diesel units include start-stop and brake-energy recuperation.

The Corsa’s new chassis improves handling, particularly in the case of the van the lower centre of gravity which helps when loaded, while there is an extensive safety package.

Six airbags come as standard, as does ESP incorporating a host of active safety aids including Straight Line Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control, Drag Torque Control, Brake Assist System, Active Rollover Protection, Hydraulic Brake Fade Assist and Hill Start Assist.

The Corsavan is available in two trim levels, and priced from £11,858.33 to £14,558.33 plus VAT.
