Vauxhall's all-new five-door entry-level model VIVA will arrive in showrooms in the summer priced from £7,995 on-the-road.
The VIVA range consists of two trim levels: SE, and SL which is a trim name carried over from the original Vauxhall Viva. There will be Air Con and ecoFLEX versions of the SE trim, giving customers a choice of four well-specified models (SE, SE Air Con, SE ecoFLEX and SL).
Both VIVA trim levels feature a high level of standard equipment. Tyre pressure monitoring system, city mode steering, lane departure warning, cruise control with speed limiter and front fog lights with cornering function are standard.
Class-leading technology including ESP which features traction control, cornering brake control, emergency brake assist, straight line stability control and hill start assist are also standard across the range. All VIVA models also feature six airbags, AM/FM radio with aux-in and steering wheel controls, electric front windows, electric/heated mirrors and remote central door locking.
Achieving 65.7mpg combined and 99g/km, the VIVA SE ecoFLEX gets a front lip spoiler, extended rear spoiler with LED brake light and ultra-low rolling resistance tyres over the entry model. It is priced from £8,170 on-the-road.
Priced from £9,495 on-the-road, SL trim features electronic climate control, Morocanna seat trim, leather steering wheel and 15-inch alloy wheels. Other highlights include six speakers, USB audio connection, Bluetooth music streaming and mobile phone portal.
Options available include Winter Pack (heated seats and steering wheel), rear parking sensors and electric glass sliding sunroof.
VIVA will be available on highly-competitive personal contract purchase plans for retail customers.
“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. “In showrooms this summer priced from £7,995 on-the-road, VIVA joins new Corsa and ADAM in a compelling small car portfolio, giving Vauxhall an unrivalled position in the small car market."
