These are the first pictures of the VIVA, Vauxhall's all-new five-door entry-level model.
Arriving in Spring 2015, the VIVA will be the latest edition to Vauxhall's small car range joining the fashionable ADAM and the popular Corsa supermini. .
Powertrain and Chassis
After first appearing in the ADAM ROCKS AIR and subsequently the New Corsa, VIVA is the latest Vauxhall to feature its new 1.0-litre three-cylinder ECOTEC engine. Specially-developed for VIVA, this 75PS powertrain is smooth, punchy and efficient, and is mated to a slick five-speed transmission.
VIVA's chassis and steering have been developed to provide exceptional safety and class-leading comfort.
Equipment and Practicality
Like its stablemates ADAM and Corsa, VIVA is fully-connected thanks to the IntelliLink infotainment system, which allows seamless integration of Apple iOS and Android devices.
It's also equipped with ESP featuring traction control, ABS with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Hill Start Assist, which prevents the car from rolling back when starting on a slope. Further safety options can be selected including Lane Departure Warning.
Another feature that VIVA shares with ADAM and Corsa is City mode which reduces steering effort at the push of a button. Park Assist alerts the driver to obstacles whilst parking plus there's optional cruise control, sunroof, fog lights, heated front seats and heated steering wheel.
“Short, crisp and full of character, Vauxhall's new entry-level model is a 'proper' small car and will hold great appeal in this rapidly growing sector," said Tim Tozer, Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director. “On sale next year at an extremely attractive price point, VIVA joins new Corsa and ADAM in a compelling small car portfolio, giving Vauxhall an unrivalled position in the small car market."
