- New special edition of smallest Vauxhall van
- Sport styling, sat-nav fitted as standard
- Plugging the gap left by the Fiesta Sport Van?
To massively mis-quote Spike Milligan, we told you some time ago that the Fiesta Van was ill – and it has now finally disappeared from Ford’s pricelists. This leaves buyers looking for a super-compact car-derived van with only one option: the Vauxhall Corsavan.
But rather than sit back, relax and let the customers roll in, Vauxhall is going on the offensive with a new range-topping Corsavan Limited Edition Nav model.
What’s special about the Vauxhall Corsavan Limited Edition Nav?
This new tiddler is also a bit of a pop at the Ford Transit Courier Sport, we suspect – itself a slightly desperate attempt to appease former Fiesta Sport Van buyers by painting a couple of stripes on Ford’s smallest boxy van.
As such, the Corsavan Limited Edition Nav – or LE Nav, as it will inevitably be shortened to – gets a whole host of sporty black detailing, including a set of bonnet and boot stripes. Gladly these are a little less tribal than those on the Vivaro Limited Edition Nav…
Complementing the stripes are unique 16-inch alloy wheels, black door mirrors and what’s described as a ‘Carbon Flash’ grille bar. Red-stitched upholstery, steering wheel and gearlever gaiter smarten-up the cab.
The Corsavan LE Nav is available in any colour except Royal Blue and Metallic Black – but looks especially fetching in this new Persian Blue hue, which is exclusive to the new model.
Does the Corsavan Limited Edition Nav have satellite-navigation?
Top of the standard equipment roster is a new Navi 4.0 IntelliLink infotainment system.
This is a 7.0-inch touchscreen with full sat-nav – including selectable economical driving routes and European mapping – plus DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. This last enables Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, too.
How much does the Vauxhall Corsavan Limited Edition Nav cost?
This new Corsavan hero is on sale now, priced from £15,515 (excluding VAT) and powered by the 1.3-litre CDTi turbodiesel engine with 95hp and 210Nm of torque.
As with all car-derived vans, load-space is limited – you get just 0.92 cubic metres of volume – but nevertheless the LE Nav plugs a gap in the market, and it’s great to see Vauxhall still supporting this format.
