Putting the power where it’s needed

Offered with either front- or rear-wheel drive, the Vauxhall Movano is ideal for rough and demanding working conditions.

Chassis options for special tasks include:

  • Air suspension
  • Limited slip differential
  • Power take-off.

Vauxhall Movano - FWD and RWD

The best of two worlds: FWD and RWD

No two jobs are the same, and no two roads are the same. So, if heavy payloads are important to your business, you’ll already be considering rear-wheel drive (RWD). Vauxhall Movano is available with RWD in a choice of two vehicle lengths, two roof heights and with gross vehicle weights (GVW) of either 3,500kg or 4,500kg, and a towing capacity of up to three tonnes. If a low loading height and low kerb weights are important, then the front-wheel drive (FWD) will suit your needs.


Vauxhall Movano - RWD

Rear-wheel drive

RWD offers some significant advantages over FWD for certain customers:

  • Greater axle capacities enable operation at higher GVWs (maximum 4,000 kg vs. 3,500 kg with FWD)
  • Capable of towing larger, heavier loads (up to 3.5 tonnes on certain twin RWD models)
  • Improved traction in ‘on-site’ environments
  • Tighter turning circle.

Front-wheel drive

For other drivers, FWD vehicles offer the best option:

  • Lower cost of ownership; in particular, lower fuel consumption
  • Lower load-compartment floor-loading height
  • Wider width between wheel arches
  • Lower kerb weight.

Vauxhalll Movano - Pneumatic suspension

Pneumatic suspension

For easier loading and unloading, as well as a more comfortable ride, you can choose height-adjustable pneumatic rear suspension (available as an option, late 2012).                                                                                                                           


Vauxhall Movano - Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

Limited slip differential

To help you drive in rough or slippery conditions, limited slip differential technology is available on RWD models (optional).
