The roomy, comfortable and Brit-built Vivaro Surf Concept is set to make its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Ideal for ideal for trips to the beach or mountains, with accommodation for five to six passengers, the Vivaro Surf Concept has been designed for active families and friends who need to transport a whole host of wet and dirty sport and fitness equipment.
Shiny copper-brown paintwork, customised Irmscher alloys and an interior blue lighting fitted by the specialists from Snoeks Automotive make the Vivaro Surf Concept a real eye-catcher.
And the doublecab van comes with some pretty eye-catching stats too. Open the doors and tailgate, either manually or via ‘Keyless Open’, and you’ll find a separate cargo area of 3.2m3 (4.0m3 for the long wheelbase version) with a total permissible weight of up to one tonne. Giving you more than enough room for all skiing, snowboarding surfing or biking equipment you need. The floor of the cargo area is also fitted with a newly-developed rail system and a storage box that can hold small items runs under the second row of seats.
On the roof, the Surf Concept has a special surfboard bracket so that longboard fans don’t have to go on holiday without their beloved board.
Powered by a 1.6-litre CDTi (140PS) BiTurbo, it mobilises 340Nm of torque and propels the Vivaro Surf Concept to a top speed of 112mph. The ecoFLEX version with Start/Stop achieves 46.31mpg, which is equivalent to 160g/km (preliminary values).
All this practicality doesn’t mean missing out all the usual comforts. While the air suspension at the rear axle compensates for all sorts of bumps in the road, shortened springs also reduce the vehicles height by around 7cm to 1.80m and an Ultra-modern IntelliLink infotainment system puts smartphone connectivity and a world of music, photos, videos, maps and more at the passengers’ fingertips.
The spacious and comfortable Vivaro Surf Concept is close to production and could be offered as a “Limited Edition”.
