New van seats for your Vauxhall VivaroCraig Ellyard
Vauxhall is not only one of the oldest car and van manufacturers in the world but it is also one of the most reliable. The British brand has proven that its vehicles are incredibly trustworthy having ranked fourth in a list of twenty manufacturers tested on reliability. But even the most well-made and best maintained vans will need new seats at some point; either when the factory fitted front seats become worn or you opt to add extra seating to the rear of the vehicle.
Adding new seats to your Vivaro
It’s fair to say seats in commercial vans take an awful lot of punishment. They can get very worn very quickly. Which isn’t surprising given their extensive use. Replacing the factory fitted seats British made with custom seating will add even more life to your Vivaro; and the crew who use it.
Replacing the seating isn’t always in the forefront of our minds. Making sure the vehicle is maintained and running is unsurprisingly at the top of the list. Nevertheless, there will come a time when the factory fitted seats aren’t fit for purpose. When that happens, you need to make sure you replace them with safe, reliable and comfortable seats.
We have decades of experience in manufacturing van seats in our Leicestershire factory and can recommend the best solution for you when you’re looking for aftermarket seats.
Even if the factory fitted seats are sound you may want to add extra seating in the back of your Vivaro. You can add extra permanent or removable seats to increase the passenger capacity of your vehicle which will help you get more people to a site at any one time. If you utilise removable seats, you can easily revert back to full cargo capacity when needed. Talk to us about adding extra rear seating by calling us on 01455 856 816.
Alternatively, you can choose a full crew cab conversion for your Vivaro. This includes new van seats for your Vivaro of course but it also includes a raised floor and a fixed partition between the driver seats and the rear of the vehicle.
Again, we are fully experienced in providing seats for Vivaro crew cab conversions and our team will be more than happy to talk through your options with you.
A brief history of the Vauxhall Vivaro
The Vauxhall Vivaro was first launched in 2001 as an alternative to the hugely popular Renault Trafic. While the Trafic was now in its second generation, the Vivaro was still only in its infancy. However, two more generations of the van have since been released. Between 2014 and 2018, the second generation made its way into the world while the third generation was seen in 2019.
However, the first-generation van was something of a test pilot and underwent a significant number of changes over the years. For example, in 2007, biodiesel technology was added and three years later, in 2010, the entire van was given a facelift with a new steering wheel and fascia.
Moving on to 2011, we saw the birth of Vauxhall Vivaro EcoFlex which was further improved the following year. As time progressed, things like DAB radios were added to the vans as well as new entry-level 1.6l CDTi 95ps engines with optional upgrades also available.
Why is the Vauxhall Vivaro popular?
One of the biggest reasons that the Vivaro is such a well-loved van is that it comes with such a wide range of options. Coming in five different models with the option to further customise your vehicle, you certainly aren’t limited.
Moreover, the Vivaro is an incredibly economical vehicle which really boosts its reputation especially in a time where this is more important than ever. Moreover, the Vivaro boasts some great safety features including dual airbags and Vauxhall Connect security and safety systems.
There is also an electric version of the van and since the UK government is looking to end the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by the year 2030, this is an attractive feature.
Furthermore, the Vauxhall Vivaro benefits from a very comfortable cab and thanks to the lower seats in the new edition, it feels much more like a car. The seats are soft and supportive and have a great range of adjustments for even greater comfort while driving; this is a huge plus for contractors who spend long hours in their vans.
Who drives it?
The great thing about the Vivaro is its versatility. Contractors to fleet owners and ‘man with a van’ businesses will get so much from it. It’s a capacity makes it an ideal medium sized vehicle and of course if you add more seats its uses become even more flexible.
If you’re looking to convert your Vivaro or need to get more from your vehicle pick up the phone and talk to us. We’ll be happy to take you through the options you have and tell you all about our British made van seats that could make a big difference to your business.
