Tue, 30/07/2019 - 10:30

  • Strong: Euro 6d petrol engine with 96kW (130hp) and 230Nm maximum torque
  • Comfortable: smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox for diesel and petrol units
  • Safe: extensive portfolio of state-of-the-art assistance systems on board as standard


Rüsselsheim.  The family friend and everyday hero Opel Combo Life is now even more versatile and attractive. The all-purpose leisure activity vehicle is now available with a new top-of-the-line petrol engine combined with eight-speed automatic transmission and Start/Stop. The 96kW (130 hp) 1.2 Direct Injection Turbo (NEDC1 fuel consumption: urban 6.3-6.1 l/100km, extra-urban 5.1-4.9 l/100km, combined 5.6-5.3 l/100km, 127-121 g/km CO2) already meets the Euro 6d emission standard and joins the existing powertrain portfolio of petrol and diesel engines (NEDC1 fuel consumption: urban 6.6-4.5 l/100km, extra-urban 5.1-4.0 l/100km, combined 5.7-4.2 l/100km, 130-110 g/km CO2). Prices for the Opel Combo Life with this engine in the Edition trim start at €27,200 (RRP incl. VAT in Germany).

In addition to the top-of-the-line petrol engine and the eight-speed automatic transmission, standard features such as the six-stage adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support and armrest, heated leather steering wheel with steering wheel remote control, power windows in front and air conditioning increase comfort. For top connectivity, the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible multimedia radio with eight-inch colour touchscreen is on board. Furthermore, state-of-the-art driver assistance systems make driving even more relaxed. The extensive standard equipment includes systems such as automatic cruise control and speed limiter, front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, hill-start assist, lane keep assist as well as traffic sign recognition and driver drowsiness alert.

230 Nm maximum torque, 186 km/h top speed – already Euro 6d compliant

With 96kW (130 hp), the new 1.2 Direct Injection Turbo is the top-of-the-line power unit in the Combo Life petrol engine portfolio. The lively three-cylinder engine already complies with the Euro 6d emission standard. It delivers 230Nm of maximum torque at only 1,750 rpm and comes combined exclusively with the ultra-modern eight-speed automatic transmission. Together with the direct injection turbo engine, this not only enables particularly smooth gear changes, but also helps to further reduce fuel consumption and emissions. In order to reduce particulate emissions as much as possible, the engine features a close-coupled Gasoline Particulate Filter (GPF) for optimum regeneration (i.e. oxidisation of the particles that accumulate in the filter). In this engine-transmission combination, the Combo Life reaches a maximum speed of 186km/h and accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 12.3 seconds.

All-round winner: The current Combo generation

But it is not only exemplary driving performance that makes the current Combo generation so attractive. It was developed according to passenger car standards from the start – and not as a commercial vehicle to which features were added retrospectively to also appeal to families. Professionals and workers using the Combo Cargo panel van therefore benefit from the same safety, technology and comfort features as families and recreational athletes riding in the passenger car version. It is no surprise that the passenger car Combo Life was voted "AUTOBEST Best Buy Car of Europe 2019" and the commercial vehicle variant Combo Cargo "International Van of the Year 2019". They offer more car for the money, plus the highest level of safety and comfort in their respective segments. In addition, the Opel Combo offers drivers and passengers plenty of space and high flexibility – all with top comfort. The Combo Life is available with five or seven seats and in two lengths (4.40m and 4.75m as the XL model variant). The shorter five-seat version already offers at least 597 litresof boot space (long wheelbase: 850 litres2). The multifunctional everyday hero displays true transporter qualities with the rear seats folded down. Then luggage volume of the standard version more than triples to 2,1263 litres while the long version of the Combo Life can carry up to 2,6933 litres.
