The Vauxhall Combo van has been a huge success for the marque, praised for its flexibility and cost-efficient capabilities. Designed to be both compact yet spacious, the Combo has been praised throughout its lifespan for its ability to exceed expectations, winning What Van? Light Van of the Year in consecutive years.
Vauxhall Combo B Van (1993 - 2001)
The Corsa Combo B Van launched in October 1993, based on the Corsa B launched two years earlier. The front section of the Combo B is virtually identical to the car on which it is based, aside from the roof spoiler. The platform is extended to allow for a tall cargo compartment, also extending the wheelbase and body on the Combo B. The spacious cargo compartment is capable of carrying a Europallet. The Combo B van was available with a variety of different engines, including a 1.4 L Ecotec, 1.6 L Ecotec and a 1.7 L DOHC Circle-L diesel.
The Combo B boasts symmetrical twin rear doors that are counted as a single "door" for the 3-door formation. Vauxhall launched a 5-door passenger version of the Combo B in 1995 in response to the popularity of leisure activity vehicles, which they named the Combo Tour. Between 2002 and 2005 there was also a DeLuxe version available, with alloy wheels and other additional luxury features.
Vauxhall Combo C Van (2001 - 2011)
Vauxhall launched the Combo C in September 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Unlike some of its competitors Vauxhall continued to base the Combo van range on the Corsa, using the subcompact Gamma platform. This meant there were limits to the overall width of the vehicle. The body shape was updated with this generation Combo van, although the front of the vehicle, up to the A-pillar, was still shared with the Corsa.
As an update on its predecessor, the Combo C was given sliding rear side doors, although single passenger side door versions and double door versions were also available. Commercial versions of the Combo C kept the previous symmetrical twin rear doors. This model shared some of its predecessor''s engine line up, with the addition of new options including a 1.3 L 16V DOHC CDTI.
The Combo C ended production in late 2011, before the December 2011 launch of the Combo D.
Vauxhall Combo D Van (2011 - present)
Vauxhall released the third generation Combo D van in 2011, this time basing it on the Fiat Doblo. This latest combo is manufactured in Turkey. Engines include a 1.4 L FIRE petrol engine and a 1.6 CDTI diesel, available with 90 ps or 105 ps. A 1.4 L FIRE CNG Turbo compressed natural gas engine was also offered.
The Vauxhall Combo was named What Van? Light Van of the Year for both 2013 and 2014, praised for its practicality and cost-effective qualities. Available in two lengths and two heights with up to a one tonne payload capacity, the Combo van is both compact yet capacious.
