Protection in depth.

Whatever your new Opel Vivaro is carrying, no matter who is sitting in it, everything possible has been done to refine and raise the safety levels without compromising economy, efficiency or comfort.


Active safety

Active safety features include:

  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP®Plus)
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
  • Hill Start Assist (HSA)
  • Traction Control (TC)
  • Trailer Stability Program (TSP) (optional with trailer hitch)


That’s a lot for any van – but the new Opel Vivaro offers even more. For example its ESP®Plus includes also:

  • Adaptive load control. The load control adapts the ESP®Plus system according to whether the vehicle is fully loaded, half loaded or empty (standard equipment).
  • Roll Over Mitigation. Roll Over Mitigation constantly monitors the vehicle behavior with the help of the ESP®Plus sensors and intervenes when the vehicle threatens to roll.
  • Hydraulic Brake Assist. In critical driving situations the Hydraulic Brake Assist increases the brake force to a maximum, reducing stopping distance.


Restraining systems

Standard passive safety equipment includes:

  • Driver's front airbag
  • Front passenger airbag (optional on Van, standard on Combi)
  • Seat belt warning, driver's seat
  • Seat belts with force limiter on first row seats
  • Seat belt pretensioner on first row seats
  • Driver's seat headrest with anti whiplash injury system
  • Anti-submarining system for driver’s seat
  • Seat belt force limiter (rear seats)
  • ISOFIX mounting points for 2 child seats on Combi and Crew Van
  • Combi versions also include TopTether points to allow universal child seats on other seats


Front side and front curtain airbags are optional for all versions.


ISOFIX child protection

Child safety is always a priority at Opel. ISOFIX child seats can be fitted on the outer seats in the second row of the Vivaro Combi, complete with the extra safety of TopTether to guard against whiplash.


Blind Angle Mirrors

Dual lens exterior rear view mirrors minimize blind spot dangers while driving, with a separate lower mirror providing extra vision whilst overtaking and an aspherical outer section for better long range visibility. The unique wide-view mirror, located on the front passenger sunblind offers extra visibility at difficult traffic junctions.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The TPMS boosts safety by detecting any lack of tire pressure while under way. Sensor activated, a telltale light in the instrument cluster gives ample warning against total deflation.


Pedestrian protection

The new Opel Vivaro fulfills regulations for pedestrian leg protection with an optimized bumper area. Deformable bonnet and underlying components, plus impact space to enable unimpeded deformation ensure efficient head protection.

Alarm system

The Opel alarm system for the new Vivaro has been designed in compliance with the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre, Thatcham UK. It received above average E rating. Activated when anyone tries to forcibly enter the vehicle, the horn sounds and the lights flash. To guard against battery disconnection it contains its own power source.
