Few vehicles define everyday practicality better than the Vauxhall Combo, and the Luton-based firm has now added to the versatility of this popular model by introducing the L2H2 panel van, which provides a maximum load height of over five feet.
The Combo L2H2 (catchy name) made its show debut at the CV Show in Birmingham this week. It’s a high-roof, long-wheelbase version of Vauxhall’s popular Combo van, which Vauxhall says has been designed to meet increasing demand for this type of commercial vehicle (demand that must hitherto have been satisfied by the Fiat Doblo XL, the Combo’s twin sister).
Offering an extra 245mm of additional height over the H1 specification, the L2H2 is available with a choice of two 1.6-litre diesel engines with 90PS or 105PS. Both engines come with Start/Stop technology as standard.
The extra length and height now gives the Combo an impressive cargo capacity of 5.0m3, combining an overall height of 2125mm and an overall length of 4740mm making it even more spacious than before, while the L2H2 still boasts the same one tonne class-leading payload as its shorter H1 siblings.
The L2H2 has been carefully designed with the end user in-mind; with a width of 1230mm between each wheel arch it is capable of carrying a Europallet with ease:
“The inclusion of this new high roof long wheelbase version to the Combo range demonstrates our commitment to satisfy customer demand,” said Steve Bryant, Brand Manager, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles.
“Today’s market means that customers are increasingly demanding a wide variety of commercial vehicles to choose from and we are confident there is now a Combo for every application.”
