Vauxhal Combo Arrives In UK

Vauxhall Combo

The Opel/Vauxhall Combo is yet another model that is the result of a partnership between General Motors Europe and the Fiat Group. Based on the Fiat Doblo, the Opel/Vauxhall Combo will have a starting price in the United Kingdom from 14,703 pounds and it will be available starting with February 2012.

The model will be sold in two lengths: 4.39m and 4.74m; two gross vehicle weights: 4,410 lbs (2,000 kg) and 5,070 lbs (5,070 lbs); two heights: 1.85m and 2.10m; four diesel engines and two trim levels.

As far as the engines are concerned, these include a 1.3-liter CDTi and a 1.6-liter CDTi, each of them with 90 hp, along with a 1.6 CDTi that has 105 PS, plus a beefier 2.0 CDTi that churns 135 PS. The 1.3 CDTi power unit will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the other engines will get a 6-speed manual transmission. The 1.6 CDTi will also be available with the company’s Tecshift automated 5-speed manual gearbox. All of the other engines will be fitted with a stop/start system for cutting down CO2 emissions and lowering fuel consumption.

Some of the van’s standard features include trip computer, full-steel bulkhead, remote central door locking, electric power steering, ABS with EBD, driver’s airbag, 12 volt power outlet located in the dashboard and CD/radio. Those who opt for the Sportive trim level will get metallic paint, air conditioning, nearside sliding door, body-color bumpers and side mirrors, full wheel covers, driver seat with armrest, lumbar support and height adjustments.
