Opel Vivaro Sport Gives Big Van A More Aggressive Look

It’s hard to get excited about a van, but Opel is doing its best with the launch of the new Vivaro Sport.

The Vivaro is Opel’s (and Vauxhall’s) version of the same light commercial vehicle alternatively sold as the Renault Trafic, Nissan NV300 and Fiat Talento. Only Opel is sprucing up its version to give it a bit more of a sporty edge.

Set to be revealed at the IAA Commercial Vehicles expo in Hannover, Germany, the Opel Vivaro Sport features 17-inch alloys (optionally painted black) and either black or silver racing stripes running up the hood, over the roof and along the flank. Fog lamps and LED daytime running lights come standard, as do tinted glass (on the passenger version) and a fully loaded cabin. It also gets a special cargo kit for the rear.

Buyers will be able to choose between diesel engines producing 125 or 145 horsepower and between Combi passenger, cargo van or double-cab chassis versions.

With the CorsaVan, Combo, Vivaro and Movano on offer, Opel credits the diversity of its commercial vehicle lineup with its rising market share, which now stands at an eight-year high.

  • Although it seems laughable, if you think about this for a second, it makes sense.
    Anything that will make a van a little less boring is very welcome.
