FIRST PICTURES AND details of Vauxhall’s collaboration with Fiat to create the new Combo van have been released. Based on the Fiat Doblò Cargo, the new Vauxhall Combo offers the same 1-tonne maximum payload as the 2010 International Van of the Year.
Pictured here as a Combo passenger car with the badge of parent company Opel, the Combo will be available in February 2012 with a choice of long and standard wheelbases of up to 3.1m, and two roof heights to create up to 4,200 litres of load space.
Power comes from three CDTi engines, producing a choice of four power outputs in the range. Entry-level 1.3-litre models will produce just 89hp, while at the top of the range the 2-litre engine produces 133hp. The third engine, a 1.6-litre unit, also offers a 89hp output in addition to a 103hp unit. Fiveand six-speed manual transmissions are standard depending on the power output, and a Tecshift automated five-speed gearbox is also available.
