Both versions will be 1.9m high, so the car should still be compact enough to fit into most car parks and garages.

The car will be available to order in February and buyers will have a choice of three diesel options. They consist of a 118bhp 1.5-litre and a 2.0-litre with either 148bhp or 178bhp. Vauxhall will be offering a pure-electric version at the beginning of 2021.

There will be two trim levels available. The Edition, which replaces the Vivaro Combi and as such is more geared towards business needs.

The second trim available is the Elite. This trim features the most luxuries, such as Carla Black leather interior, 180-degree rear parking camera, hands-free sliding doors, head-up display, massage function and heated front seats and a panoramic glass roof.

The Vivaro Life Elite will come with all the latest safety technology, including intelligent cruise control, lane-keep assist and drowsiness alert, high beam assist and Vauxhall’s Intelligrip traction control system.

Vauxhall’s latest MPV is one of eight new or facelifted models, including the next-generation Corsa, set for launch by the end of 2020 as part of its ‘PACE!’ strategy.
