Neumann confirmed that 'we will use platforms and engine technology from PSA on both our MPV models. We don’t want to build the same cars [as PSA]; they will be different.'
Company sources within Vauxhall have also said that the new MPVs will have SUV-like design characteristics, so it’s likely that both will have high-set bodies and driving positions, and potentially even four-wheel drive as an option.
Expect a colour touch-screen and extensive online 4G connectivity functions as part of the OnStar system that Neumann has confirmed 'will be optional only on the entry-level models' across the Vauxhall range.
Both models will be offered with a variety of sub-100g/km petrol and diesel engines, as the company strives to achieve an average CO2 output of 95g/km across its range by 2020, which Neumann stated 'would be achievable with more efficient combustion engines and lighter materials, rather than electrification.'
