New 1.6 CDTi engine for Vivaro

Vauxhall has added a new version of the 1.6 CDTi engine to the Vivaro range. The latest model of the BiTurbo version has 125PS - a slight increase on the 120PS engine it replaces - yet claimed fuel economy is better at 49.6mpg.

The 125PS engine will initially be available in the Vivaro Combi, priced at £28,060 on-the-road. With 320Nm of torque it should provide strong low down power.

The entry-level 1.6 CDTi has 95PS along with 260Nm of torque and costs slightly less at £27,094 on the road. Claimed economy is 44.8mpg.

Both engines are Euro 6 compliant and come with start/stop as standard along with a six-speed manual gearbox.

The Vivaro is also now available with new features such as keyless entry and start, a tablet holder plus an improved IntelliLink infotainment system Navi 50 which has DAB as standard.

At the same time, Vauxhall has also introduced new 2.3-litre BiTurbo diesel engines in the nine-seat Movano Combi and 17-seat Movano Minibus ranges. 

The Combi gets two Euro 6 engines, the first a 145PS version with 360Nm of torque. The most powerful engine now delivers 170PS and 380Nm of torque. Both models deliver 42.8mpg and emit 173g/km CO2 with prices starting from £33,448 excluding VAT.

The 17-seat Movano minibus has also been updated with the Euro 6 compliant 145PS BiTurbo engine.

The new engines come with start/stop along with a manual six-speed transmission. There is also a driver assistance package which includes high beam assist, lane departure warning, fog lights and an on-board computer.
