Drivers can be sure that the vehicle is not overloaded by pressing the sensor-based overload indicator. A range of innovative technologies and driver assistance systems make driving and manoeuvring easier, including the optional Rear View Camera and IntelliGrip traction control system. The new generation of infotainment system features an eight-inch colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to boast outstanding on-board connectivity.
The class-leading Combo Cargo recently starred in an exciting new advertising campaign under the slogan ‘Carries British Business’. Led by a new TV commercial and promoted by extra activity across social media, the campaign celebrates the innovative, hard-working and entrepreneurial character shared by the van and its drivers.
