Carry on reading to discover more about the Movano and how it could help drive your business forwards.
Capacity and Loadspace
The amount of choice available when configuring your ideal Movano is borderline unbelievable, as we shall now explain.
First thing's first, you're offered four different body lengths and three roof heights to choose from, which means the smallest Movano offers 7.8 m3 of load volume, whereas the biggest gets you a mammoth 17 m3.
It's also worth illustrating how many different body styles are available, which is easier to highlight in bullet points:
- Double Crew
- Six-seat Combi
- Nine-seat Combi
- 17-seat minibus
- Platform Cab
- Box van
To top it all off, the Movano can tow up to 3,000kg and can go up to 4,500kg gross weight.
Technology and Safety
Movano isn't just a brute that can shift some serious weight, it also happens to have a host of driver aids and safety features that are there to make life easier.
The optional rear-view camera gives you improved vision at all times when you're reversing; this feature is ideal if you find yourself in tight spots frequently. The automatic headlights and wipers adjust themselves based on the conditions, which means you can concentrate on the road ahead. Electronic Climate Control is a welcome companion on those warm days in the summer.
- Lane departure warning
- Blind Spot Alert
- Electronic Stability Programme (optional on front-wheel drive)
- Side-Wind Assistant
- Driver's airbag
Economy and Performance
The Movano's range of engines are all derived from a 2.3-litre turbocharged diesel engine, and now produce more power compared to the previous generation; they also happen to be more efficient.
There's six variations to choose from, all delivering a sizable slab of torque from the bottom of the rev-range. Power outputs range from 133 bhp up to 178 bhp, so it just depends on what you will be transporting. Depending on the specification you go for, you'll get auto stop/start chucked in, which is a money-saver in heavy traffic.
Talking of saving money, Vauxhall have extended the Movano's service intervals to 25,000 miles (or ever two years), which means reduced annual operating costs.
