Want to give your business a lift? Then get yourself a vehicle that delivers a long list of commercial firsts. Roomy, accessible and more than capable in the cargo department . It’s also dependable, versatile and efficient to run. And with long wheelbase, high roof and Crew van models available, it’s as practical as ever. With capabilities such as these, one thing is certain: Combo really can help your business deliver.
Combo is quite simply first class. Not only does it have one of the longest and most spacious load areas in its class, but it also has the highest rear axle weight combined with a useful, low rear loading height. The Combo Crew van, including the Sportive model adds a comfortable three passenger rear seat and convenient twin sliding side-access doors. When it comes to key business tools, you always invest in the best. In both the long and short term, that makes it a seriously good investment.
A weighty proposition. The benefits don’t end there. Combo 2300 models can haul over a tonne. Yet the Combo boasts impressive fuel consumption figures – most notably on the ecoFLEX 1.3 turbo diesel engine with Start/Stop technology. It also has the longest wheelbase in its class, promoting excellent driveability. That’s quite a combination and one less thing for business operators to worry about.
Combo has all the creature comforts needed to create the ideal working environment. The facia is clearly laid out, switches easy to reach and controls easy to operate. And with reach- and rake-adjustable steering and a four-way adjustable driver’s seat, you can quickly achieve the most comfortable driving position. Better still, the high-set seating provides an excellent view of the road. Other standard features include a fully-featured CD player/radio, while a broad choice of options – including Bluetooth® and USB connectivity – let you fine-tune your working environment with the business tools you need. Combo is also packed with practical stowage solutions that make light work of organising your cab.
Reduce your overheads and increase your potential for growth. With its high capacity and low running costs, Combo really can give your business a competitive edge. At the business end, a range of custom-fit options allows you to transport all manner of loads, efficiently and safely – from parcels and pipes to ladders. With a massive 5.0cu.m of loadspace volume and a payload of over a tonne, the L2 H2 van can handle even larger items. Even with heavy machinery on board, the handling stays sharp and the ride comfortable. And with an L2 version of the Crew van available there’s ample loadspace available even with up to five occupants on board. All of which means that Combo appeals more than ever to today’s business user.
Instant access. Combo is big on convenience. Offside and nearside sliding side-access doors are fitted to all long wheelbase and Crew van models; a nearside sliding side-access door is also standard on short wheelbase Sportive models. Together, the doors add even greater loading versatility to the van’s load carrying potential, while allowing convenient access to cargo via the side of the vehicle. This is a particular benefit where the need arises for access to the offside of the vehicle. A glazed side door option is also available.
Whatever your trade, there’s a Combo that gets the job done. With four distinct body styles – offering a choice of two GVW’s, long or short wheelbases with high or standard roof and the versatile Crew van variants – the Combo range lets you select the configuration that’s the exact fit for your business, meeting your requirements more closely than any previous Combo model. In addition the un-glazed Combo Crew van is officially classified as a Commercial Vehicle for VAT purposes meaning that as a business you can reclaim the VAT*. And whichever version you choose, our design experts have ensured that your Combo will always be fit for purpose – a factor reinforced by a wide range of options and accessories. So whichever way you look at it, choosing Combo is a win-win decision.
*Subject to the rules applicable to VAT recovery (not available on glazed Crew van).
At a massive 3.4cu.m for the short wheelbase, standard roof version, there’s no mistaking Combo’s cavernous load area. The cargo space will comfortably swallow everything from Euro pallets to plant equipment and heavy machinery. For even bigger items, there are high roof and long wheelbase versions; combine both and you have an impressive 5.0cu.m of loadspace available while the maximum load height of high roof models is over 1.5m.
The practical Crew van extends that versatility even further with L2 models offering 1.9cu.m of loadspace and a load floor length of over 1.3m with the rear bench seat in place. Adding to the Combo’s appeal is a wide range of load area options – including a handy load flap and internal ladder carrier – which let you exploit Combo’s remarkable carrying potential to the full.
*Not available on Crew van models.
From a practicality perspective the Combo has everything sorted. A host of clever in-cab storage features make light work of organising your cab for a busy day out on the road. Sportive, Crew van and all high roof models also feature a cross cab overhead storage shelf. A choice of rear door applications with an extra-low loading height completes the picture.
*Glazed tailgate is standard-fit on glazed Crew van models, unavailable on unglazed Crew vans.
From the ergonomically designed facia and fully adjustable driver’s seat through to electric windows and air conditioning, the Combo range is simply packed with features designed to make the driver’s day more comfortable. Options like cruise control, rear parking distance sensors and electronic climate control further enhance driver well-being. The result: a mobile working environment you really won’t mind spending time in.
Safety in the workplace is a vital concern for any business and Combo is no exception. The protection starts with a sturdy passenger cell made of high-grade steel, plus Electronic Stability Programme-Plus (ESP-Plus) with hill start assist and traction control, an airbag for the driver and ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution. Key safety options include rear parking distance sensors, passenger and side-impact airbags.
An informed driver is a safer driver, so Combo can also be specified with an optional CD/MP3 CD player/stereo radio, along with wireless Bluetooth® connectivity for ease of communication on the move and provision for a satellite navigation system to keep you heading in the right direction.
When it comes to everyday driving, Combo’s bi-link independent rear suspension gives you the best possible ride quality and handling – even when you’re hauling heavy loads. But Combo doesn’t only ride and handle like a dream; it also performs with remarkable verve for what is, to all intents and purposes, a working vehicle. Drivers can select from four powerful yet efficient Euro 5 compliant turbo-diesel engines and a 1.4i 95PS Start/Stop petrol unit. All five engines are designed for optimum ease of serviceability and low running costs. The diesel range comprises 1.3CDTi 90PS, 1.3CDTi 90PS Start/Stop ecoFLEX, 1.6CDTi 105PS Start/Stop and 2.0CDTi 135PS units. There is also a 1.6CDTi 90PS version complete with Start/Stop and Tecshift transmission. Start/Stop switches the engine off when you stop at the lights or in traffic, then restarts it once the clutch is depressed, cutting fuel bills and reducing emissions. A choice of ecoFLEX models further underlines Vauxhall’s ‘eco’ credentials, while Combo drivers can also look forward to long service intervals (two years/21,000 miles*) and excellent fuel consumption for the 1.3CDTi 90PS ecoFLEX engine with Start/Stop.
Whatever your line of business, whatever cargo you’re carrying, there’s a Combo to suit all operators – and all budgets – including the L2 H2 variant and versatile Crew van models. The choice is entirely down to you. Here’s a brief overview of the wide range of models available.
To help you select the Combo that’s just right for your business, we’ve adopted a straightforward naming scheme. L stands for Length: there are two versions available, L1 (short wheelbase) and L2 (long wheelbase). Height (H) comes in two sizes, H1 (standard roof) and H2 (high roof).
