The new Opel Combo 5 generation is officially presented following the twin brother Citroen Berlingo 3 generation , which opened the first of the triad of “heels” of the concern PSA (Citroen Berlingo, Opel Combo and Peugeot Partner). The world premiere of new products will be held in March 2020 at the Geneva Motor Show . In our review, the new Opel Combo 2019-2020 – photo, price, configuration and technical specifications of the 5-generation practical model. The German company Opel has uncovered only the passenger version of the novelty, named Opel Combo Life, and the cargo van Opel Combo of the new generation will appear a little later. The start of sales of the new generation of the van and compact van Opel Combo in Europe will be at the end of the 2nd quarter of 2020 at a price of respectively 14500 and 20 000 euros. In Russia, the new Opel Combo may appear, but not earlier than mid-2020.
Opel Combo model is present in the world market since 1986, when the first generation of a van – Opel Kadett Combo (Combo A), produced from 1986 to 1994 made its debut. The second generation of Opel Combo B, moving to the Opel Corsa B platform, was produced from 1994 to 2001. The third generation of Opel Combo C used the Opel Corsa C and was produced from 2001 to 2011. The fourth generation was called the Opel Combo D and in fact was an exact copy of the Fiat Doblo 2 , but with a slightly modified exterior (the original falshradiatornaya grid and Opel emblems). Both models, by the way, are still produced side by side at the Tofas plant in Turkey. It only remains to supplement the history of the model with the new 5 generation Opel Kombo, who became the twin brother of Citroen Berlingo and the Peugeot Partner (the company Adam Opel GmbH (Opel) in 2019 passed under the control of the French car concern PSA after a long stay under the wing of the American company General Motors from 1929 to 2019).
The new Opel Combo is based on the same “cart” as the sister brother Citroen Berlingo 3 (the combination of the new EMP2 platform (front suspension) and the rear end from Berlingo of the previous generation) and externally differs little from the French model. Opel Kombo has an original design of the front part in the style of crossovers Opel Crossland X and Opel Grandland X with high-positioned headlights, large falshradiatornoy grille and a solid bumper, supplemented by large air intakes. At the same time, all the other parts of the body are identical with the French brother, but Airbump air caps that protect Citroen’s side doors have been replaced by the usual plastic pads in the Opel model.
The new Opel Combo will be offered to customers with two body variants: the usual 5-seater version with a total length of 4400 mm and wheelbase dimensions of 2780 mm and a stretched model with a 190 mm larger base, 2970 mm and a total length of 4750 mm. In this case, the last option is the default with a 5-seat saloon, but as an option, you can order two additional seats, providing a 7-seat configuration.
The interior of the Opel Combo is basically the same as that of the Citroen Berlingo, but with a careful study of the German heel salon we reveal the original steering wheel with the Opel emblem, a more rigorous design of the instrument panel, slightly different armchairs, a powerful central tunnel between the front seats. At the same time, the Opel Combo can not boast of three separate seats for passengers of the second row as in Citroen Berlingo (a sofa with a folded 40:60 backrest is installed, and some seats are offered for a surcharge).
In the list of options, by the way, a mass of modern, advanced and useful equipment: adaptive cruise control, a system for tracking traffic signs, systems that monitor the road marking and physical condition of the driver, dual-zone climate control, multimedia with an 8-inch color screen (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, rear view camera), Head-up display, keyless entry system, glass panoramic roof, heated front seats and steering wheel, multifunctional Modutop roof, Advanced Park Assist and a lot of other fichees to.
