Vauxhall has upgraded the trim levels available on its van range with the addition of a new top-spec Griffin Edition.
The new Griffin trim level will be available on all models in the Vauxhall range but limited to specific versions of each.
The Vauxhall Combo Griffin Edition will get 16-inch alloy wheels, metallic paint and rear parking sensors, while on the inside there is an 8-inch touchscreen, cruise control, and Vauxhall’s FlexCargo folding bulkhead and passenger seat to improve the usability of the rear loadspace. Combo Griffin Edition will, however, only be available on the standard wheelbase L1H1 Combo van and with the 1.5-litre Turbo D diesel engine. Prices will start from £15,475 (ex VAT).
Vivaro versions of the Griffin Edition get a similar set of equipment. Vivaro Griffin Edition vans will be fitted with rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, high-beam assist as well as automatic windscreen wipers and body coloured bumpers. A 7-inch touchscreen is standard on the Vauxhall Vivaro Griffin Edition which also gets cruise control, and FlexCargo folding bulkhead. Like the Combo Griffin Edition, the Vivaro Griffin Edition will be limited to the L1H1 and L2H1 versions of the van and be available with the 120hp engine option. Prices for the Vivaro van start from £20,240.
And finally, the Movano Griffin Edition will be equipped with rear parking sensors, cruise control, automatic windscreen wipers and automatic headlights as well as a digital radio with Bluetooth and a USB connection, comfort seats with lumbar support and an armrest. It too will be limited in body sizes with just the medium wheelbase L2H2 and long wheelbase L3H2 bodies available. Vauxhall Movano vans will start from £22,370.

TKL Skip Hire has added three new Scania P 250 skiploaders to its fleet as it expands its growing waste, recycling and skip hire business in Yorkshire.
The new units have Hiab Multilift Futura FTR12 skiploaders, which will increase its collections by up to 30% as a result of the new additions.
Martin Lindskey, managing director said: “We’re in a really positive position to be investing in the business and increasing our capacity to meet growing demand. These state-of-the-art skiploaders are operated using remote control which is safer for the driver and makes it easier to drop and collect skips within tight spaces.
“We have several contracts with local authorities and house builders so it’s important that we have the right equipment and team in place to respond to the needs of our customers. This is the second time we have chosen to use Hiab equipment because of its quality and reliability.”
