New Vivaro Life set to become Vauxhall’s flagship people-carrier

Vauxhall‘s new Vivaro Life MPV has broken cover ahead of its debut at the Brussels Motor Show later this month.

The new people carrier is the latest in a fleet of van-based MPVs to hit the market, following in the tyre tracks of the Peugeot Rifter, Ford Tourneo Courier and Vauxhall Combo Life.

The Vauxhall Vivaro Life is based on the popular Vivaro panel van.

Like the panel van on which it is based, the Vivaro Life will be built at Vauxhall’s factory in Luton. There, the Vivaro shell will gain windows, carpets and rear seats.

As with the Vivaro, Vivaro Life customers will get a choice of lengths and configurations. The standard ‘Medium’ version will measure 4.95m, while the ‘Long’ model will come in at 5.3m.
