The Vivaro-e Life comes only in the lengthiest 'Long' body shape and in its most affordable forms can be had in 'Edition' or 'Combi' trim, both variants costing under £35,000, which means they qualify for the government's Plug-in car Grant, reducing the asking price to around £32,500. Both these base variants can seat up to nine people. The equivalent Peugeot e-Traveller Long version of this design doesn't offer a base-trimmed model to match that starting price; and the equivalent Citroen e-Space Tourer can't be had with this Vauxhall's Long body shape. At the top of the Vivaro-e Life range, there's a plush 'Elite' trim level (around £50,000) which can seat up to seven.
'Edition' and 'Combi' models get only the basics; 16-inch steel wheels, air conditioning and cruise control with a speed limiter. There's a DAB radio with Bluetooth and steering wheel controls. The top 'Elite' version is of course much better appointed. Here, you get larger 17-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, dual-zone electronic climate control with roof-mounted heater controls. There's also front fog lights, a rear view camera and a tailgate with a separate opening rear window. Plus leather upholstery, a head-up display and a chrome grille. There's also a 7-inch centre-dash infotainment screen with 3D navigation, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone applications.
Electronic driving assistance devices include a 'driving time warning system', 'Driver Attention Alert', a 'Road sign reading with speed limit recommendation system' and an 'Active Safety Brake' set-up. All versions offer plenty of seating modularity and flexibility, with the second and third row seats fully adjustable and removable.
