Opel Combo Specs and Pictures

Now in its third generation, the Opel Combo sets new standards in terms of its diversity of models and boasts “Best in Class” results in terms of functionality and utility, positioning it as a leader of the European Van-B segment. With its diversity of talents, the new Combo is the perfect way to round off Opel’s product spectrum in the area of light cargo vans as well as leisure and family vehicles.

The all-rounder which is available in different body styles is based on the Fiat Doblo (“International Van of the Year 2011″) of Opel’s cooperation partner. The aim of this strategic alliance is to drive Opel’s growth in the area of commercial vehicles.

Alongside its larger stable mates, the Vivaro (D-Segment/up to 2.9 t) and the Movano (E-Segment/up to 4.5 t), the new Opel Combo provides the basis for a highly competitive offering that now consists of three model ranges. This trio will strengthen Opel’s commercial vehicle segment and make it one of the central pillars of the brand.

Growth in the European Van-B segment is predicted to be one million units until the year 2015. 62 percent of all Combo sales are predicted to be for the Cargo van variant, 38 percent for the passenger “Tour” variant.

Opel has been selling the Combo since 1985 and the current generation has been around since 2001. The versatile concept of a diverse leisure, family and commercial vehicle has been very popular. Even during the final phase of its lifecycle, the predecessor of the new Opel Combo was still in the top three of its segment in many European markets.

Body & Design

The Opel Combo sets new standards in terms of its functionality, modern technology, great diversity of models and is a strong player in the European Van-B segment. The spectrum of models comprises two basic types of bodywork: those with short and long wheel bases. Both types are available as transporter versions with a panel van layout, a partially or fully glazed body (Cargo), as well as a five or seven seat passenger variant (Tour). Vehicles with short wheel bases are also available with high roofs.

Engines & Powertrains

Powerful and fuel efficient CDTI engines

Smooth and sprightly 1.4 liter gasoline engine

Customers who appreciate the qualities of a smooth 1.4 liter engine will not be disappointed with the Combo. The 70kW/95 hp version available in the Opel Combo delivers maximum torque of 127 Nm at 4.500 rpm.

1.4 CNG ecoFLEX: consistently economical and environmentally friendly

The engine variant of the CNG version geared towards dual fuel usage of gasoline and natural gas is particularly suited to the environment and efficiency.

Optional ESP with brake assist, anti-slip regulator and Hill Holder

Customers can chose from further safety options depending on their requirements. Head and shoulder air bags are available in the front row (Tour), as well as an anti-slip regulator for maximum traction in slippery conditions plus the electronic stability program (ESP) that controls vehicle stability in the event of tire grip loss.

The ESP range also includes brake assist that gives the driver maximum braking pressure reserves in case of sudden or hard braking maneuvers. The Hill Holder system is a further feature attached to the ESP. The Hill Holder facilitates hill starts. It is activated after the brake pedal is released and then maintains the brake pressure for a short while so that the vehicle can move forwards or backwards on hills without rolling.
