Vauxhall’s multi award-winning Combo Cargo is now available in four-wheel drive. The new Vauxhall Combo Cargo has been adapted to provide up to 205mm ground clearance, stronger underbody protection, additional grip and the power to take on a variety of terrains.
The new Combo Cargo 4X4 gives Vauxhall the opportunity to grow in uncharted territory such as agriculture, construction and telecoms/ communications due to it being the only small 4x4 van on the LCV market.
Vauxhall teamed up with traction specialists Dangel to come up with the design and development of the new 4x4 conversion. The steering and suspension systems have been optimised for all-wheel drive and for maximum efficiency are installed at the vehicle assembly plant.
For added driver convenience there are two driving modes to choose from: AUTO 4WD and ECO 2WD. In Auto 4WD, 4x4 is engaged , part of the torque is shifted to the rear axle as soon as the front wheels begin to lose grip. In ECO 2WD mode, the Combo Cargo 4x4 switches to front-wheel drive and the 4x4 system is disengaged, this in turn reduces fuel consumption, emissions and tyre wear.
Another added driver convenience is the option to lock the rear axle by putting the vehicle in ‘R’ Lock mode when encountering difficult conditions. A limited-slip rear differential for maintaining traction in the severest of driving conditions is optional.
Safety features are as standard include: Active safety of ESP, engine and gearbox protection and a 90mm higher ground clearance. An Optional 4x4 Plus Pack features: Additional protection for the fuel tank and rear axle, as well as 20mm higher ground clearance (a total of 205mm).
With approach and departure angles of 26.6 and 38.3 degrees respectively, and a break-over angle of 26 degrees, the Combo Cargo 4x4 can climb 41-degree gradients.
