Vauxhall is adding air conditioning at no extra cost to the LS trim level Astravan 1.7 CDTi for fleet customers until the end of the year.
Astravan remains one of the most popular of the car-derived vans in the market place, and the free air con offer – normally costing £555 - should ensure it remains high in the consideration zone.
"In any case," said Vauxhall national commercial vehicles sales manager Ian Hucker, "Astravan is the classic urban delivery vehicle, so if anyone deserves to keep cool in the next few months, it is the Astravan driver. He or she already benefits from many car-like features, so this is just a logical further step to making his or her life easier."
Astravan LS 1.7 CDTi has an ex-VAT on the road price of £12,454. Even before the free air conditioning addition, the van has always been highly specified, with steering adjustable for rake and reach and a driver’s seat height adjuster. It also has a fold-forward passenger seat back and upper load restraint mesh.
Astravan has a load potential to handle just any job. Maximum volume is 1.6 cu metres, its maximum load for length is a useful 1.7 metres and maximum payload is 610 kg. It has 20,000 miles/one year service intervals and Vauxhall’s three year/60,000 mile warranty.
Astravan is built at the ultra-modern General Motors plant at Gliwice in Poland.Published 17 July 2004
