Vauxhall Movano 17-Seater Van

Vauxhall is taking the idea of people carrier to the next level by introducing a new version of the Movano van that can accommodate 17 people! The upgrade range of Movano also includes 6- and 9-seater Combis.

The new minibus version is designed to carry 17 adults with their stuff in enormous comfort. It features the classic minibus layout with offset double seats on one side of the aisle with adjacent single seats. That’s the most efficient way of putting too many people in a van!

The new Movano Minibus is powered by a Euro 5-compliant 2.3CDTi (125PS) engine, available with either manual or Tecshift transmission.  Vauxhall’s Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with traction control also comes as standard.

Details in the press release below:

Vauxhall has added three new factory-built derivatives to its award-winning Movano range with the addition of a 17-seater Minibus and 6- and 9-seater Combis.

The purpose-built Minibus provides generous accommodation for 17 people with optimum access and comfort making it ideal for schools, colleges and care homes. The layout features offset double seats on one side of the aisle with adjacent single seats. The last two rows of seats can also be specified with optional floor-mounted fixing rails enabling easy removal and freeing additional load area space quickly.

The fully trimmed interior includes overhead coat racks, sliding rear side window and walk-way illumination.  The wide-opening sliding side door and standard electrically operated retracting side step ensure easy passenger access and egress.

Additional comfort is provided by individual down-lighting for every seat and the availability of air conditioning and individual and optional aircraft-style ventilation nozzles.

Providing even more luggage space and without compromising passenger carrying capability, the new Movano Combi is available in two variants: L1H1 6-Seater and L2H2 9-Seater.  The new Combis will prove useful to a range of buyers including hotels, taxi companies and firms looking to move their workforces around.

With its dual front passengers’ bench seat, rear bench seat for three passengers and single sliding door on the nearside, the 6-Seater Combi provides comfortable and accessible seating for all six occupants. The 9-Seater Combi is even roomier, featuring a dual front passengers’ bench seat plus second and third row rear bench seats.

The 6-Seater Combi is powered by a Euro 5-compliant 2.3 CDTi (100PS) engine.  Also meeting Euro 5 requirements are the two 2.3 CDTi powertrains in the 9-Seater Combi range, available with power outputs of either 125PS or 150PS with ESP as standard.

The new Movano Minibus is available to order now with manual transmission. The new Movano Minibus Tecshift, 6- and 9-Seater Combis will be available to order from June.  Movano Combi prices start from £28,665 on-the-road including VAT. Prices for the Movano Minibus start at £29,798.33 excluding VAT.
