The Vauxhall Movano, a base vehicle for many minibus conversions has undergone restyling and the addition of the latest technology, which will be standard across the range.
As the largest vehicle in Vauxhall’s portfolio, the Movano is available in four different lengths and three heights, carrying a maximum payload of up to 2110kg, making it an ideal vehicle for minibus converters.
150 different versions of the Movano are available ex-works, allowing for numerous conversions for specialist requirements. The new Movano is clearly identifiable as a Vauxhall, sharing many design elements with other models in the brand’s range of vans and cars.
Inside the cabin, Vauxhall says the multi-adjustable seats are comfortable and supportive, with the optional comfort seats for the driver and passengers offering adjustable lumbar support.
Vauxhall notes that the safety of both the driver and other road users has been an important factor in the development of the new Movano.
A rear vision camera system, available for the first time on the Movano, gives a live feed to a seven-inch touchscreen, providing optimum visibility and helping to detect cyclists and pedestrians. A blind spot monitoring system is also new to the Movano, using ultrasonic sensors to detect objects in the blind spot and alerting the driver with LED indicators in the corresponding mirror.
A lane departure warning system, which sounds an audible alarm if the driver strays from their lane, is also available.
Due to the large dimensions of the Movano, Side-Wind Assistant comes as standard on all models.
In such conditions as high wind, the Electronic Stability Programme is automatically activated to improve handling.
Behind the wheel, drivers will benefit from connectivity and entertainment features thanks to the Navi 5.0 IntelliLink Pro infotainment system, which is available for the first time on new Movano.
The system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, with the interior featuring a wireless charging point for smartphones.
