Adult occupant

The Vivaro is a twin of the Renault Trafic and Euro NCAP is informed that the two vehicles are structurally identical with the same interior fittings and levels of safety equipment. Accordingly, Euro NCAP believes that the star rating of the Renault Trafic can also be applied to the Vauxhall Vivaro. The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. An airbag for the front seat passenger is standard on passengercarrying versions of the Trafic but, as it is an only an option on the cargo versions, it was not included in the test. Dummy readings indicated marginal protection of the passenger's chest and the steering column and parts of the facia presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of both front seat occupants. Maximum points were scored in the side barrier test with good protection of all body regions. A head/thorax airbag is available as an option but, as it is not standard equipment, the Trafic did not qualify for a side pole impact. A geometric assessment of the seats indicated marginal protection against whiplash injury in the front seats and poor protection in the rear seats.

Child occupant

Isofix is standard on the outboard seats in the second row.


The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs in some areas but was marginal in others. Tests against the front edge of the bonnet are not performed for vehicles in this size category. The bonnet surface provided predominantly adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian with weak or poor results recorded primarily at the stiff bonnet edges and windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment. A seatbelt reminder is available only for the driver's seat. A speed limitation device is standard on passenger vans but, as it is only an option on the cargo-carrying variants, it was not included in the assessment.
