Vauxhall’s all-new Combo Life will arrive in showrooms in September, with diesels priced from £22,000 on-the-road. The Combo Life comes in two trims, Design and Energy, with Energy models available as either a five- or seven-seater. Customers can also choose between two wheelbases: standard and XL. Its powertrain portfolio includes petrol and diesels with either manual or automatic transmission.
The entry-level Design model features standard specification including air conditioning, DAB Radio with USB and Bluetooth audio streaming and 16-inch steel wheels with styled wheel covers.
Moving up the range, the Energy trim offers eight-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system, 16-inch alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors.
The Energy seven-seater includes 35/30/35 split-folding second-row seats with fold-flat facility, two removable third-row seats and two foldable tables with cup-holders.
Combo Life customers can choose between a variety of turbo-charged, direct injection petrol and diesel engines, all of which combine driving pleasure with low CO2 emissions from 111g/km and fuel economy up to 67.3mpg. All powertrains meet the stringent Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard that comes into force for all new registrations from September 2019. The units will be combined with modern five- and six-speed manual transmission. A low-friction eight-speed automatic with Quickshift technology can be ordered in combination with the top-of-the-range 1.5-litre (128 bhp) diesel.
There are three individual rear seats, all with ISOFIX child seat brackets, and an optional panoramic glass roof. The Combo Life is fitted with technologies and driver assistance systems such as Driver Drowsiness Alert, Rear View Camera with 180° bird’s-eye view, Head-up display, and IntelliGrip, as well as improved comfort features such as heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
The Combo Life is available as a 4.4-metre standard length version or a longer 4.75-metre long model, with two sliding rear doors as standard. Both variants have a height of 1.8 metres and will be available with either five or seven seats. The five-seat, standard length version has a minimum luggage volume of 597 litres, while the long wheelbase model has a minimum luggage volume of 850 litres. With the rear seats folded down, the boot volume of the standard version more than triples to 2,126. The longer version of the Combo Life offers even more capacity when the rear seats are folded down with 2,693 litres.
