Opel has set its sights on delivering even more vehicles with the launch of their true all-rounder, the new Opel Combo Life. As a specialist vehicle and one that will suit the needs of many families, the fifth-generation Combo is based on a new architecture, is immensely spacious, highly practical and versatile.
Equipped with one or two rear sliding doors it can be ordered as a short (4.40 metres) or long (4.75 metres) version and as a five or seven seater. For a more relaxed journey, knowing that all in the back are safe there are three individual rear seats with Isofix child seat brackets and the rear cabin is made all the brighter thanks to the panoramic roof.
However, more strikingly, the new Opel Combo Life raises the bar in terms of technical ambition in this segment and takes the level of safety and comfort to a new dimension. It is fitted with technologies and driver assistance systems well-known from the compact or SUV segment such as Driver Drowsiness Alert, Rear View Camera with 180° bird’s-eye view, Head up display, IntelliGrip, and comfort features such as heated seats and a heated leather steering wheel. One of the newcomers to the Opel portfolio of assistance systems is Flank Guard which supports drivers when turning at low speeds.
Furthermore, the Combo Life offers Opel state-of-the-art Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment systems with up to eight-inch capacitive colour touchscreen. There are also USB ports in the front and second row; while a 230V power socket in the front footwell allows one passenger to plug in a laptop. Furthermore, compatible smartphones can also be charged wirelessly via the inductive charging pad located below the air-conditioning controls.
