Rüsselsheim.  The new Opel Combo may only celebrate its world premiere at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover (Booth C 64, Hall 13) on September 19 but the innovative and compact Opel loading champion can already be ordered today. The new Combo commercial vehicle is available for prices starting at €16,850 (all prices RRP in Germany excluding VAT). For this attractive entry level prices customers will receive the newcomer as a 4.40-metres standard version in the Selection trim and 56 kW/76 hp Euro 6d-TEMP-certified 1.5-litre diesel (fuel consumption[1]: urban 5.1-4.7 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.3-3.9 l/100 km, combined 4.4-4.0 l/100 km, 116-110 g/km CO2). Philippe Narbeburu, Senior Vice President Business Unit LCV der Groupe PSA, will present the Opel Combo to the media during the IAA Commercial Vehicles press conference set to take place at booth C64 in Hall 13 at 13:25 CET on September 19.

Already fit for tomorrow: The economic Euro 6d-TEMP engine line-up

The new Combo has been developed with the ambition of offering top efficiency to professionals and the lowest cost of ownership in the segment thanks to an all-new architecture, ingenious packaging and unique technologies resulting in an extremely efficient transporter. The 1.5-litre diesel units with outputs ranging from 56 kW/76 hp to 96 kW/130 hp (fuel consumption1: urban 5.1-4.1 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.4-3.8 l/100 km, combined 4.6-3.9 l/100 km, 123-104 g/km CO2) play their part in this. They all already meet the stringent Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. Customers also have the choice between five and six-speed manual transmissions along with the low-friction eight-speed automatic transmission, which is celebrating its Opel LCV (light commercial vehicle) debut. When ordered with the eight-speed automatic transmission, the Combo comes with the top-of-the-line 96 kW/130 hp unit (fuel consumption1: urban 4.7-4.5 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.4-4.1 l/100 km, combined 4.5-4.3 l/100 km, 119-113 g/km CO2).

Flexible and spacious: The various Combo variants

From the start, the Opel Combo is available in numerous variants including the 4.40-metre standard version, the 4.75-metre XL type (from €20,050) and a spacious five seater crew cab with two sliding doors as standard (from €21,550). Opel’s new compact transporter also outshines most of its main competitors with a load volume of up to 4.4m3, a payload of up to 1,000 kg and a loading length of up to 3,440 mm for objects and work material. The cleverly design loading area is wide enough between the wheel arches to enable the loading of up to two Euro pallets. And extremely long utensils such as wooden planks can be stowed at an angle thanks to the optional roof hatch (€350). And, a unique feature in the segment is also introduced in the new generation Opel Combo: a sensor-based overload indicator1 that, at a press of a button, allows the driver to make sure the vehicle is not overloaded.

Leading technologies at affordable prices: The modern driver assistance systems

In addition, the new Combo comes with further innovative technologies and assistance systems that make driving, manoeuvring, transporting goods or a crew easier, safer and more comfortable. This includes Forward Collision Alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking[2], Lane Keep Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition (available for €980 with the safety feature pack) or Cruise Control (€100).

The optional Surround Rear Vision1 (€350) supports the driver and greatly improves visibility of panel vans or of fully loaded vehicles. Furthermore, a second camera in the exterior door mirror on the passenger side ensures that the driver no longer needs to worry about the blind spot on this side of the vehicle. And, the new Combo can also be equipped with the new, sensor-based Flank Guard[3] system that helps prevent annoying and expensive bumps or scratches while turning at low speeds (available in combination with Side Blind Spot Alert and electric side door mirrors for €250). Those professionals whose workplaces require enhanced traction in mud, sand or snow can also upgrade their front-wheel drive Combo with the electronic IntelliGrip traction control system and with the “worksite” set-up (Grip & Go pack including Hill Descent Control for €700).

Elsewhere, the new generation of infotainment systems ensures outstanding on-board connectivity. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi Pro systems can easily be controlled via the prominent 8-inch colour easy-to-read, easy-to-reach touchscreen. The integrated navigation system of the top-of-the-line unit with European maps and 3D navigation also shows TMC (Traffic Messaging Channel) updates, thus ensuring that drivers can always select the perfect route to get to their customers and avoid traffic jams.

[2] Works automatically above 5 km/h and below 85 km/h. From 0 to 30 km/h the deceleration metric to reduce the impact speed of the collision is 0.9g. From 30 to 85 km/h the system brakes to the speed by a maximum of 22 km/h. After this threshold, the driver needs to brake himself to reduce the speed even further.

[3] Active at speeds below 10 km/h.
