Vauxhall has given details of its new Corsavan model, saying that it is "rightly proud" of the car, with its "about-town driveability, minimal running costs and a body shape that oozes style and chic".
The new model shares many characteristics with the Corsa car, but Vauxhall states that it has been designed as a commercial vehicle to cater for the needs of fleet and small business users.
A purpose-built load bay is incorporated into the new Corsavan, offering a "best in class" payload of 550kg, as well as a choice of "lively yet frugal" engines and the "all-important benefit of good looks".
The model comes with either a 1.3-litre CDTi diesel engine or a 1.2-litre Twinport petrol engine, both of which have already been successful in the Corsa car, while a five-speed manual gearbox comes as standard.
Stylistically, the new Corsavan features body-coloured bumpers, full-width wheeltrims and a choice of colours.
Inside the car are a range of high-quality materials, as well as a "superb" driving position, a "curvy yet durable" dashboard and translucent backlit dials for stereo and ventilation control.
Security is also a priority with the new model, owing to its expected popularity with business users, with remote central door locking and deadlocks, anti-theft protection for audio equipment, an engine immobiliser and a dash-mounted door locking button all included.
