“The fifth generation Corsavan has moved the game forward again, adopting a host of new technologies from Vauxhall’s car range. Despite the additional weight imposed by Euro 6 engines, the van also promises lower fuel consumption and emissions, with increased carrying capacity”.
“The most efficient ecoFLEX models are said to be good for an incredible 88.3mpg, while even this range-topping Sportive van posts a combined fuel figure of 74.3mpg. CO2 emissions are a credible 101g/km, dropping to just 84g/km for the ecoFLEX model”.
“You would expect such a compact van to be nippy in town and it doesn’t disappoint, darting for gaps in the traffic at every opportunity. What was less expected was its long distance comfort and the relatively smooth ride, even when unladen”.
“As befitting its status in the range, the increasingly popular Sportive model comes packed with equipment, though even the base model is packed with useful tech. A heated windscreen, auto wipers and lights, electric windows and heated door mirrors, air-con, cruise control, sports seats, LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloys, ESP, Hill Start Assist, six airbags, Bluetooth streaming, DAB, the list goes on”.
“Despite all the additional gear that comes with this latest generation Corsavan, the compact Vauxhall retains a very useful 543kg payload in Sportive trim. There is 0.93m3 of load volume on offer too, with a surprisingly useful load area length of 1,257mm to the half height bulkhead”.
