Opel and Vauxhall have taken the wraps off the new Vivaro which will share platform with the 2014 Renault Trafic also introduced today.

Looking a lot like its French cousin, the new Vivaro adopts a prominent and large front grille flanked by wraparound headlights with glossy black mouldings and chrome accents. It will be sold in three body design trim levels and customers will have the possibility of selecting from two lengths and two roof heights. There will be eleven exterior colors (five solid and six two-coat metallic) along with specific hues for specialty versions.

Power will be provided by a more economical four-cylinder, 1.6-liter CDTI engine that will also be available in a twin-turbo version which will return more than 39 mpg US (47 mpg UK or 6 liters / 100 km).

While the Renault Trafic will be produced in Sandouville, France, the 2014 Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro is going to be assembled in Luton, UK. All three versions are slated to reach dealerships this summer.
