When a vehicle needs space for 17 cubic meters of cargo, there isn't much room left for artistic expression on the part of its designers. So it is that the Movano looks much the same as the other large panel vans you can picture. The almost vertical headlight stacks are mounted high on the van's tall nose out of harm's way and the wheels are pushed out to the corners maximising the wheelbase and the space available inside. Despite the functional approach, the Movano is not unattractive but most operators will be more interested in the driving environment within.
Vauxhall is particularly proud of its efforts in the Movano cabin. The various seating options give a broad range of adjustment while the position of the steering column can also be tweaked to taste. Visibility is enhanced by the large door mirrors, the huge expanse of windscreen and the vehicle's steeply sloping nose.
More than just an area to sit in and drive, the cabin has been designed as a working environment. There's a clip on the dashboard to hold delivery notes or paperwork and the optional centre seat that can fold down to form a desk complete with swivelling laptop table. Operators will also find the usual array of cup holders, door pockets and other storage receptacles to keep the area tidy including a cavernous 7.6-litre glovebox.
