All you need to know about towbars for Vauxhall Viva
Vauxhall first introduced the Viva into their range in 2001. The Vauxhall Viva is available as a or Hatchback. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your Vauxhall Viva, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of Vauxhall Viva below.
Vauxhall Viva Van Towbars
The Vauxhall Viva Van was first released in 2001. To determine which variant of Vauxhall Viva you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.
Vauxhall Viva Van Nose Weight
Van models made between 2001 and 2006 have a minimum nose weight of 85 kg and a maximum nose weight of 85 kg, between 2010 and 2014 have a minimum nose weight of 85 kg and a maximum nose weight of 85 kg, between 2014 and 2019 have a minimum nose weight of 85 kg and a maximum nose weight of 85 kg, vehicles made after 2019 have a minimum nose weight of 104 kg and a maximum nose weight of 104 kg.
What does nose weight mean?
Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.
Vauxhall Viva Van Electric Kits
Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Van to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.
Electric kits for Vauxhall Viva Van
We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Van, like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.
Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your Van and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.
Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.
Vauxhall Viva Van Software Update
We will alert you as to whether your Van requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.
Does my vehicle need a software update?
Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your Van can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.
Software updates can take place at your local Vauxhall dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.
Vauxhall Viva Van Bumper Cuts
Van models made between 2001 and 2006 will require a visible bumper cut in order to be fitted, between 2010 and 2014 will not require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted, between 2014 and 2019 will not require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted, vehicles made after 2019 will not require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted.
Does my vehicle need a bumper cut?
Some towbar styles might require a bumper cut in order to be fitted to your vehicle. But, this is improving and newer vehicles are less likely to require a bumper cut due to better towbar designs.
Vauxhall Viva Van Towing Capacity
Van models made between 2001 and 2006 have a towing capacity of 2000 kg to 2000 kg, between 2010 and 2014 have a towing capacity of 2000 kg to 2000 kg, between 2014 and 2019 have a towing capacity of 2000 kg to 2000 kg, vehicles made after 2019 have a towing capacity of 2500 kg to 2500 kg.
Be sure to check the EXACT towing capacity of your vehicle before towing on your VIN plate.
What is towing capacity?
Towing capacity is the weight that your Van is capable of towing safely, but it can vary even across the same model of car. It is important to note that the capacity of the towbar and the towing capacity of the Van may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
