All standard roof versions of the van will be built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant where 900,000 of the vans have been produced since 2001.

“After 13 successful years on the market, we wante3d to make the new Vivaro’s packaging even more attractive while raising the standard of core capabilities.

“The new Vivaro showcases sculptural artistry and technical precision. This gives it a sharpened and more refined character making it the ideal mobile business card.”

Two trim levels will be on offer from launch. Variant features durable black plastic mouldings for the front bumper, grille, mirror housings and rear trim, while Sportive colour-matches these items to the body and adds chrome detailing to the grille.
