Vauxhall confirms production of new Corsavan

Published 16 January 2015

The heavily revised Vauxhall Corsavan will be available from £11,858 (excluding VAT) when it reaches UK showrooms in February 2015. 

On sale now, the Corsavan gets a number of improvements, with the most notable being an increase to its payload from 550kg to 571kg. The car derived van also gets a flat load bay, capable of holding up to 920 litres. 

The petrol and diesel engines have also been updated to Euro six, with the choice of a 1.2 petrol or a 1.3 diesel. The diesel, available with two outputs (75PS and 95PS) will return up to 83.1mpg with the 95PS unit, while the 75PS will provide a claimed 72.4mpg.

Surprisingly, the 1.2 petrol is no longer available with start/stop technology, which means economy falls from 65.7mpg and 119g/km CO2 to 52.1mpg and 128g/km. 

However, in-car connectivity has been improved, with the addition of IntelliLink infotainment smartphone connectivity. Vauxhall also claims to have improved refinement, with reduced cabin noise, harshness and vibration.

The Corsavan can also be ordered in Sportive trim, for £14,558, which adds a bodykit and a host of extra, including air condition, front fog lights, interior ambient lighting and cruise control.

Some very interesting info there for real mpg buffs. If Stop Start is worth 13 mpg, then one of these on a long trip on the motorway is never going to get more than 59 mpg (assuming no traffic)
Why do they promise something they can't deliver!

Good on Vauxhall for offering a petrol option, if only I could get a petrol option in a mid size van and I would upgrade to a transit custom or vauxhall vivaro instead of having everything cramped into my small van.
