The brand has introduced a 17-seat minibus and six and nine-seater Combis.

Vauxhall claims optimum access and comfort make the minibus ideal for schools, colleges and care homes. The interior features offset double seats adjacent to single seats on the other side of the aisle.

The last two rows of seats are offered with the option of floor mounted fixing rails so they can be removed to free-up extra load space.

The interior also includes overhead coat racks, sliding rear-side window and walk-way illumination.

A wide-opening sliding side door and standard electrically operated side step are designed to ease passenger access.

Every seat is equipped with down-lighting and air conditioning with optional aircraft-style ventilation nozzles is also available.

A Euro5 2.3CDTi 125hp engine powers the minibus, which is offered with manual or Tecshift transmission. ESP with traction control comes as standard.

The L1H1 six-seater and L2H2 nine-seater Combis are targeted at hotels, taxi firms and businesses needing to move workers from site to site.

The six-seater features dual front passengers’ bench seat, rear bench seat for three and near-side sliding door. The nine-seater variant adds a third row bench seat.

The L1H1 is powered by a 2.3CDTi 100hp unit while the larger Combi comes with a choice of 125 or 150hp. All engines are Euro5.

Movano Combi prices start from £28,665 on-the-road including VAT. The Movano Minibus starts at £29,783 excluding VAT and is available to order now  in manual mode with Tecshift to follow later.
