The Opel Combo Life is the new daily hero and a high-roof station wagon for all occasions. The fifth combination generation features an entirely new architecture, an abundance of room, exceptional flexibility and practicality, one or two sliding doors. It is available in a short (4.40 meters) or an XL (4.75 meters) version.) It has seating for five or seven people and an Opel-typical design. The high-roof van will be displayed as an XL variation at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hanover for the first time. A person, a true marvel of space, a sincere friend. Not only his family members will adore him. The new Combo Life combines a relaxing atmosphere with various cutting-edge innovations unmatched in its class. During a press conference, the unique combination will be shown with sibling models Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner/Rifter.
At an entry-level price of 19,000 euros, the 4.40-meter long all-rounder in the Selection equipment line already includes standard driver assistance systems such as front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, Lane Keeping Assist, Hill Start Assist, intelligent cruise control, and speed limiter, as well as drowsiness and traffic sign recognition on board. Furthermore, in the entry-level version, amenities such as a comfortable seat for the driver and front passenger and tinted heat-insulating glass contribute to the driver's and front passenger's well-being.
The new Opel Combo Life is available in the next higher edition model, starting at 23,000 euros. Standard equipment includes an Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible multimedia radio with an eight-inch color touchscreen, air conditioning, and a heated leather steering wheel.
The newcomer sets a new standard for safety and comfort in the class. The Opel Combo Life incorporates well-known and established technologies and driver assistance systems from the compact SUV segment, including a 180-degree panoramic reversing camera with a bird's-eye view and a head-up display, as well as the IntelliGrip adaptive traction system, which ensures optimal traction and stable handling regardless of whether the Combo Life is driving on mud, sand, rain-soaked roads, or snow. Another innovative feature of Opel's assistance system portfolio is flank protection. When navigating at low speeds, the system employs twelve sensors to notify the driver that one of the vehicle's sides may brush up against or crash with an impediment (pillars, walls, etc.). Additionally, the Opel Combo Life cuts a handsome figure on the outside due to its muscular proportions and low overhangs, providing it a sturdy appearance.
Comfortable, adaptable, and valuable
The new Opel Combo Life will wow drivers and passengers with ample room, flexibility, and comfort, along with a slew of segment-exclusive innovations and support systems. The van is available in five- and seven-seat configurations in both short and XL lengths. Even the standard version, which seats five passengers, has a minimum baggage capacity of 597 liters, while the Combo Life with a long wheelbase has a minimum luggage capacity of 850 liters . With the rear seats folded down, the newcomer reveals real minivan characteristics. The regular version's baggage compartment space thus grows by more than thrice to up to 2,126 liters. This is followed by the Opel Combo Life's extended version, which carries 2,693 liters.
Long things may also be moved simply due to the possibility of folding the front passenger seat backrest horizontally. If desired, the tailgate can additionally have a separate integrated window that can be opened and folded down to facilitate the storage of other objects in the automobile. If that is not enough, you may pull a trailer with a trailer weight of up to 1,500 kg using the optional fixed or detachable towing gear with a stability program.
Additionally, the second row of seats in Opel Combo Life variations may be entirely configured according to individual preferences and requirements. Customers may select between an essential bench that folds down in a 60:40 ratio or three separate seats with fold-down backrests that can be simply lowered down from the trunk let. In all arrangements, Isofix brackets at each seat enable the side-by-side attachment of three child seats. Each seat includes a top tether attachment point to further enhance safety. The two large sliding doors allow entering and exiting the passenger compartment to be more straightforward.
The panoramic roof option provides rear passengers with an unrestricted view of the sky in a bright atmosphere. If the sun is too bright, an electric parasol may be triggered through a switch located in the head area, dimming the inside. Extra equipment is clever: when the Combo Life is ordered with a panoramic roof, the vehicle includes a central roof gallery with standard LED lighting and a 36-liter box that hangs from the top above the luggage compartment cover, providing additional storage space without obstructing the view to the rear. In addition, the driver and front passenger will appreciate the convenience of the center console, which accommodates 1.5-liter bottles, the side compartments, and the upper and lower glove compartments. The Combo Life provides up to 28 ingenious storage solutions in total.
Finally, but certainly not least, the various networking possibilities offer the most enjoyable driving experience possible. The new Opel Combo Life features an eight-inch color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and USB connections for tablets and smartphones in the first and second rows. Additionally, there is a 230-volt outlet in the front passenger footwell. Additionally, compatible devices may be charged entirely wirelessly using inductive charging.
