With van ownership reaching record levels in the UK, it is now more important than ever that your van offers high levels of comfort, connectivity and safety, whilst still providing the vital capacity and load bearing features that make vans the valued workhorses for businesses up and down the country.
The new Combo Cargo is the van that ‘Carries British Business’, and here at Forest Gate Group, we are proud to offer the commercial vehicle to local businesses.
Vauxhall’s Combo really ticks all the boxes. It’s only just launched and it’s already delivered, after being voted International Van of the Year 2019. The jury said about the all-new Vauxhall Combo: “These vans are redefining the entire segment of modern compact vans, with a fresh approach in design, fit and finish on a par with compact cars and a unique feeling of comfort.”
They also praised Combo’s numerous assistance systems, such as the sensor-based overload indicator and the excellent all-around visibility.
“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.”
Looking the part
The Combo is rugged and ultra-practical, with smart, dynamic looks that is sure to make a long-lasting impression. And the inside is just as attractive as the outside. The commercial vehicle is full of premium features in a modern cockpit that puts everything you need at your fingertips - all the controls and buttons are right where you need them.
What’s more, the interior comes complete with an all-adjustable steering wheel and high seating position that lets you drive in total comfort.
The Combo makes light work of any large and heavy cargo thanks to its huge load area, which comes as standard, and a maximum payload of up to 1,020kg. It also comes in a selection of variants, including short wheelbase, long wheelbase and crew van. In crew van body style, up to five people can be seated, while the load is safely stowed behind a partition wall. What’s more, the rear bench can be folded down and the partition moved behind the front seats if you need extra space. The Combo Cargo is also cost-effective to run with low CO2 emissions from 109g/km and fuel economy up to 67.3mpg.
The van also has you covered when it comes to driver safety. It’s packed full of smart safety features, including the Safety Pack, which includes forward collision alert, lane-keep assist, speed sign recognition, driver drowsiness alert and automatic emergency braking. And if that’s not enough, the van also comes with a range of optional driver-assistance systems, including head-up display, panoramic rear-view camera and the all-new Flank Guard system, which alerts you to obstacles beside you, such as pillars, barriers, walls and other vehicles. Elsewhere, the heated front seats and steering wheel offer added comfort when the temperature drops.
New Combo will also ensure you’re fully entertained and well-connected with its range of tech available. These include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which projects your smartphone, its sat-nav, and music and news app services onto a high-res 8-inch touchscreen.
Carries British Business
Vauxhall is also proud to build the vans that make this country great. Innovative, hard-working and entrepreneurial, these vehicles have more than a little in common with the people who drive them. Putting the Combo at the forefront of British businesses, Vauxhall has launched a new advertising campaign that champions teamwork and celebrates the underdog, making heroes of the hard-working ‘Confidently British’ people who drive it. This is the van that ‘Carries British Business’.
