MARKET AND MODEL

•All-new Combo available to order now priced from £15,630 excluding VAT
•Crowned International Van of the Year at the IAA Show last month
•Arrives in Vauxhall showrooms in December

Fresh from being voted International Van of the Year 2019, Vauxhall's all-new Combo is available to order now priced from £15,630 excluding VAT.

Arriving in Vauxhall showrooms in December, the Combo is based on an all-new architecture and is offered in a selection of variants, including short wheelbase, long wheelbase and crew van. It can carry a load volume of up to 4.4m3 and a payload of up to a tonne. Longer items up to 3440mm, such as pipes and ladders, can be stored safely and securely, thanks to the rear swing doors and FlexCargo load-through hatch.

In crew van body style, up to five occupants can be accommodated, while the load is safely stowed behind a partition wall. In addition, the rear bench can be folded down and the partition moved behind the front seats if required.

'Vauxhall's all-new Combo raises the bar in the compact van segment,' said Derek Wilson, Vauxhall's LCV Director. 'Practical, comfortable and packed with all latest driver assistance and connectivity technology, the new Combo is the small van that meets all your business needs.'

The all-new Combo is launched in to the Van-B segment, which last year accounted for 84,306 registrations in the ÚK.

DESIGN
•Robust exterior design with sculpted details
•Innovative architecture combines EMP2 platform to an upgraded CV rear chassis
•Ergonomically designed interior and cargo area with segment-leading capability

The Combo's personality is clear as soon as you see the exterior. A robust appearance countered by sculpted details enhances precision and solidity.

The underfloor architecture is a true innovation, combining a passenger car modular front chassis (EMP2 or Efficient Modular Platform 2) to an upgraded commercial vehicle rear chassis. The intelligent use of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium has ensured that cargo capability has not been compromised, but in fact improved. As well as shortened front and rear overhangs, the EMP2 front end provides a passenger car-like driving experience. Advanced driver assistance systems provide additional support for the driver.

The lighting design at the rear is linear and vertical. This optimises the size of the boot lid and eases cargo loading. The Combo also features wide-spanned doors with integrated hidden hinges that are designed to provide greater security against theft.

The interior is even more impressive and provides the driver with everything that they need. The layout is ergonomically designed, with all controls instinctively located and easily accessible. The seating position is more upright and gives the driver a commanding view, while the compact, flat-bottomed steering wheel allows for easier access to the cabin.

The cargo area is uncompromised and offers segment-leading capability. Standard configuration includes wide-spanned rear swing doors and a nearside sliding door. Both nearside and offside sliding doors access is standard on long wheelbase and Crew Van models. This allows easy access to a practical cargo space.

PAYLOAD, CAPACITY AND FLEXIBILITY
•Úp to 1,000 kg payload, loading volume of 4.4m3 and loading length of 3,440 mm
•Standard and XL version with roof hatch available
•Crew cab variant can transport equipment and up to five people

The Combo is available as a standard (4.4m) or XL version (4.75m) – both with a choice of two or three front seats. It also comes as a spacious crew cab with five seats. The new compact Vauxhall transporter outshines its segment rivals with a load volume of up to 4.4m3. It can also transport payloads up to 1,000kg and long items up to 3,440mm in length. The Combo can also load up to two Euro pallets thanks to the increased distance between the wheel arches.

Long items, such as wooden planks can be stowed at an angle via the optional roof hatch. A sensor-based overload indicator is also available. It allows the driver to check the vehicle is not overloaded – a unique feature in the segment. While the optional Construction Pack set-up ensures the Combo even masters difficult terrain with ease.

The Construction Pack provides improved underride protection thanks to a sump guard and Michelin Latitude Tour Mud and Snow tyres for added grip. The chassis height is also increased by 30mm.

The Combo is available in numerous variants, allowing countless configurations to suit all sector needs.
•Dependent on trim level, the 4.40m standard Combo with a wheelbase of 2,785mm is available with zero, one or two sliding side doors. It can transport payloads of up to 1,000kg and has a cargo volume of 3.3m3 to 3.8m3 and can stow items up to 3,090mm long. Transporting even longer items is easy too, with the option to select rear swing doors and a useful roof hatch. The roof hatch opens at an angle of up to 40 degrees and has a width of 1,201mm and a panel length of 617mm, meaning ladders and such like can be transported with relative ease.
•The XL variant, is 4.75m long, with a wheelbase of 2,975mm and a load volume of up to 4.4m3 and can carry working equipment with a length of up 3,440mm. It comes with two sliding side doors as standard to facilitate easy access and loading.

Another major advantage to the Combo, is being able to easily load bulky items through the rear doors, with a low loading edge of just 548mm. Even in the standard Combo variant, there is enough space between the wheel arches for a forklift to load two Euro pallets. This saves time when loading and unloading and in turn money, as work can be turned around more quickly.

Safety is also a major consideration in the new design. There are six tie rings on the floor and an option to fit four more at mid-height to ensure everything is kept secure and in place. Furthermore, a partition available as a solid wall or with a window and protection grill, separates the cab from the loading area.

Combo Crew Cab

2019 Vauxhall ComboThe new Combo also offers a safe solution for comfortably transporting both people and equipment with its crew cab option – suitable for a team of up to five. Working material is safely stowed behind a removable partition wall and the rear bench can be folded down for optimum versatility. A handy flap in the partition means that especially long items can be transported too. These clever solutions enable the Combo to double as a 'team bus' for five people and a transporter with extended load area.

Furthermore, the new Combo offers numerous additional storage possibilities for smaller items such as bags, laptops/tablets and stationery, as well as large door and seat back pockets and two gloveboxes.

Comfort

The highly versatile seating configuration options are further proof of just how flexible and comfortable the new Vauxhall Combo is. These range from a four-way adjustable seat for both driver and front passenger, to a six-way adjustable driver seat with adjustable lumbar support, integrated armrest and practical under seat storage compartment. Alternatively, three occupants can also sit abreast in the front of the Combo, thanks to the two-seater bench – which is optionally available with a moveable table, so the driver can catch up on work when stationary.

The driver and front seat passenger can also enjoy heated seats on cold days, while the optional heated steering wheel brings luxury and technology to the LCV market, usually only found in higher segments.

Elsewhere, the dual zone climate control ensures pleasant temperatures inside the new Combo and allow the driver and front seat passenger to enjoy separate settings. Integrated sun sensors adjust the system depending on intensity of the sun, while the humidity sensor and automatic air dispersion prevent misting.

POWERTRAINS
•Range of turbocharged, direct-injection petrol and diesel engines
•Low CO2 emissions from 109g/km and fuel economy up to 67.3mpg
•Transmissions: manual or automatic with Quickshift technology

Combo customers can choose between a variety of turbocharged, direct-injection petrol and diesel engines, all of which combine driving pleasure with low CO2 emissions from 109g/km and fuel economy up to 67.3mpg.

Fuel economy has been improved by at least 16 per cent, and CO2 is segment-leading with at least a 17 per cent improvement over the outgoing model.

Combo 75PS and 100PS diesels have been tested against the Euro 6B emissions cycle. The 130PS diesel is already compliant to Euro 6D TEMP, which is not required for commercial vehicles until September 2019.

The engines are mated to five and six-speed manual gearboxes or, optionally, to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

To ensure optimised exhaust gas treatment, the emission control system on the diesel engines – which consists of an oxidation catalytic converter/NOx adsorber, AdBlue injection, the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalytic converter and the diesel particulate filter – is a compact unit located in the direct vicinity of the engine. The NOx adsorder acts as a cold start catalytic converter and limits nitrogen oxide emissions from the start before SCR takes over at higher operating temperatures.

The top-of-the-line engine is the new 1.5-litre diesel with 130PS with Start/Stop and turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (fuel consumption: urban 57.6mpg, extra-urban 68.8mpg, combined 64.2mpg, 116g/km CO2).

The Combo is also available with an ultra-modern eight-speed automatic transmission for the very first time (fuel consumption: urban 62.8mpg, extra-urban 68.8mpg, combined 65.6mpg, 113g/km CO2). The new eight-speed automatic is available with the 130PS four-cylinder diesel and not only enables smooth shifting but also helps further reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

Further 1.6-litre diesel units are available with 100PS and Start/Stop (fuel consumption: urban 60.1mpg, extra-urban 70.6mpg, combined 65.6mpg, 111g/km CO2) for the standard, XL and crew cab variants. And at entry level with 75PS (fuel consumption: urban 57.6mpg, extra-urban 68.8mpg, combined 64.2mpg, 114g/km CO2) for the standard variant only. These engines are mated to a five-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND CONNECTIVTY
•Latest technology and driver assistance systems
•Easier parking thanks to Advanced Park Assist
•Available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

The Combo raises the bar for safety and comfort in this segment. It is fitted with technologies and driver assistance systems that are more commonly seen in high-tech passenger cars.

For added peace of mind, there is a sensor-based load indicator that warns the driver if the van is overloaded. Once the engine is switched on, a white LED lights up if the weight exceeds 80 per cent of the permitted payload, keeping the van safe. If the weight is above the limit, an orange signal with an exclamation mark lights up.

Other innovations available include a Rear View Camera that acts as a 'digital' rear view mirror, while a second camera in the passenger side door mirror ensures the driver has an additional blind spot detection aid.

The Flank Guard is a sensor-based system that supports the driver while turning at low speeds, providing a warning when there is a risk the vehicle side will collide with an obstacle.

IntelliGrip, an electronic traction control system, is also available.

The five IntelliGrip modes available on the Combo are:
•Normal / On-road: 'Normal mode' is activated as soon as the Combo is started. The electronic stability control (ESC) and traction control are calibrated for normal day to day conditions – ideal for the motorway and countryside, as well as the city.
•Snow: 'Snow mode' ensures best possible traction on icy and snowy surfaces. Traction control regulates the slip of the front wheels, slows the spinning wheel down and transfers the torque to the other front wheel. This enables optimum propulsion at speeds up to 31mph.
•Mud: This mode enables more slip. This intentional spinning of the wheel with the least traction when the vehicle is launching ensures that mud is removed and the tyres can re-establish traction. Meanwhile, the wheel with the highest grip is provided with the highest torque. This mode is active up to 50mph.
•Sand: This mode allows a small amount of simultaneous wheel spin on the two driven wheels, enabling the vehicle to advance while reducing the risk of sinking.
•ESC Off: Enables the deactivation of the electronic stability control (ESC) and traction aids up to 31mph to give the driver complete autonomy. For safety reasons, IntelliGrip automatically switches back to 'normal mode' at speeds above 31mph.

Trailer Stability Control (TSC) increases safety considerably when a trailer is needed to transport additional items. This additional ESC function stabilises the swaying of the trailer or slows the vehicle as required. However, if these measures are not enough to avert danger, the system reduces engine torque even further and brakes the vehicle.

The Permanent Rear View Camera shows the area behind the van on the infotainment screen as soon as reverse is selected, showing guidelines to assist manoeuvring. It also displays an area (4m to 30m behind the vehicle) when driving, meaning it can be used as a 'digital' rear view mirror.

A second camera fitted in the exterior door mirror on the passenger side further improves the overall view. As soon as the passenger side indicator is activated, the passenger side view is shown on the monitor, resulting in an increase in safety for all road users.

A plethora of driver assistance technology is available including:

•The Head-up Display, which reduces the danger of distractions and projects the most important driving data into the driver's direct line of sight.
•Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking that issues an alarm and a visual warning, and will brake automatically if the driver does not react to the alerts.
•Front camera system, which gathers and processes data for additional driver assistance systems such as Speed Sign Recognition and Lane Keep Assist.
•Cruise control with speed limiter and intelligent speed adaptation enables you to maintain a constant speed – making it ideal for economical motorway The speed limiter function can be set to ensure that you do not exceed the speed limit and can be easily overridden if required. Working in conjunction with speed sign recognition (included in optional Safety Pack), when a new speed limit is detected a message appears in the driver information display. You can then set the cruise control to the new speed limit with a simple press on a steering wheel button.
•Driver Drowsiness Alert detects for signs of driver fatigue and suggests the driver takes a break at the next service station.

Connectivity


2019 Vauxhall Combo
The new generation infotainment systems available in the Combo guarantee outstanding on-board connectivity. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi Pro can be controlled via the eight-inch colour touchscreen, the steering wheel remote controls or voice command. Accessing playlists is just as simple as reading out or dictating text messages. Furthermore, the infotainment systems comes with two ÚSB ports, double tuner and six speakers.
The integrated navigation system of the top-of-the-line Multimedia Navi Pro unit with European maps and 3D navigation also shows TMC (Traffic Messaging Channel) updates, ensuring that drivers can always select the best route – helping to save time spent in traffic jams. Multimedia Navi Pro also comes with voice destination entry.

Smartphones can be charged without cables (if your phone supports wireless charging), while DAB+ provides a wide range of radio stations and ensures better sound quality.
