The Opel Vivaro commercial van may not be seen on our side of the Atlantic, but in Europe and elsewhere, the Vivaro is known for its combination of functionality, comfort, and attractive appearance that’s practically more car than truck. To 80,000 readers of the Spanish daily, The Economist, the Vivaro ranks as “Best Commercial Vehicle” in the paper’s Ecomotor awards.
“The new Vivaro arrives in a very competitive marketplace where customers, more than ever before, are looking for something in addition to a light commercial vehicle. They need a vehicle that is extremely flexible to use and able to operate as a tool for work as well as a private minivan. The new Vivaro range offers the perfect solution for these requirements. It is an important part of Opel’s new product offensive and will considerably reinforce our position in the light commercial vehicle and fleet segment,” said Sales, Marketing and Aftersales Director of Opel España, Enrico De Lorenzi, Sales, Marketing and Aftersales Director of Opel España.
The Vivaro’s style is a reflection of Opel’s award-winning design philosophy “Sculptural Artistry meets German Precision,” something that’s a twist to the usual in the light commercial vehicle segment. The contemporary and elegant exterior features a prominent grille, frontal styling, and characteristic “blade” side motifs that are shared with Opel’s other vehicles. Daytime running lights also incorporate Opel’s signature “wing” shape and are available with LED technology, which add to the Vivaro’s distinctive appearance.
With many variants that include increase load capacity, the Vivaro’s cabin includes state-of-the-art equipment such as Opel’s IntelliLink infotainment with an intuitive navigation system, plus other smart design solutions which quickly and easily help adapt the interior for mobile office use.
