Introducing the Vauxhall Combo Life
The brand-new Vauxhall MPV features many innovations and impressive new technologies, raising the bar for safety and comfort in the MPV segment. Combining spaciousness, practicality and versatility, the Combo Life makes family life easier.
Based on the Vauxhall Combo van, it has advanced connectivity features and safety systems as standard, keeping drivers safe and connected at all times.
Featuring driver assistance systems that are often found in the hatchback or SUV segments, the Combo Life is available with Driver Drowsiness Alert, Rear View Camera and a Head-up display, amongst many others.
Design and Practicality
The all-new Vauxhall Combo Life is beautifully practical and is complemented by attractive design cues and versatility.
The five-seat variant comes with a luggage volume of 597 litres, far more than something like an Astra, increasing to 2,126 litres when the seats are folded flat, whereas the seven-seat long wheelbase model has a maximum luggage volume of 850 litres (increasing to 2,692 litres). In addition to five or seven-seater options, two lengths (standard and long) are also available.
The standard model is 4.4 meters in length whilst the long wheelbase version measures 4.75-metres, so depending on your individual motoring requirements, you can opt for the size that suits you, while the rear sliding doors offer enhanced accessibility.
Interior and Technology
The family-loving car also has a spacious and flexible interior and with Combo Life's infotainment system - which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto - occupants are kept fully connected.
Elsewhere, safety features that also provide comfort are high on the agenda for this life-enhancing MPV. A front camera system is adopted to process Lane Keep Assist, along with Speed Sign Recognition to help drivers be sure that they're keeping within the limit, and keeping safe within their lane.
This is further enhanced by Automatic Cruise Control which adapts to the vehicle in front, along with Intelligent Speed Adaptation which will inform the driver of new speed limits.
Economy and Performance
Vauxhall Combo Life buyers will have a choice between a selection of turbo-charged petrol and diesel engines, which will provide ample power, yet also return excellent MPG.
If you don't do many miles or spend most of your time in town, the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine may be the best option for you, returning MPG in the low-to-mid 40s. Diesels are better for longer journeys or higher annual mileage, and should regularly see more than 50mpg on your trip computer.
The engine choices will be joined by either a five or six-speed manual transmission, or alternatively a silky-smooth eight-speed automatic.
