Opel is Life! And the Awards don't stop!
Firstly Opel gave you the Award-Winning Combo Cargo Van – the perfect fleet vehicle which satisfies both Return on Investment (ROI) plus Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in its solution. And now we have the Award-Winning Combo Life people mover arriving in South Africa during the third quarter of 2019!
*Rüsselsheim/Brussels – A jury of 31 specialist journalists from 31 countries voted the Combo Life as ‘Best Buy Car Europe 2019’ at AUTOBEST 2019 – We’re not surprised by the result!
According to the jury, no rival vehicle offers as much car for the money. Opel CEO, Michael Lohscheller, commented at the prize-giving held in Brussels that “Customers and media alike are impressed by the Combo Life. We have packed the Combo Life with high levels of flexibility, comfort and innovative technologies that are unrivalled in this class. The Combo Life therefore plays a key role in our on-going product offensive, which will continue this year and next. This is underlined by the title ‘Best Buy Car of Europe’”.
Unitrans Opel Distributor will be introducing the Combo Life 5-seater people mover option into the South African market, uniting the comfort and dynamics of a passenger car with the spaciousness and variability of a typical Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV). The 60/40 split back seats enable loading of up to 690 kg when flattened forward with sliding doors on both sides – access for your family or to goods couldn’t be easier.
The state-of-the-art 1.6 turbo diesel engine returns a combined fuel consumption of 5 L/100 km – an important consideration for the driving task the Combo Life is built to satisfy. Low-speed torque allows for better and more efficient overtaking, towing and gear choice as offered by the car-derived running gear with readily available 230 Nm of Torque and 68 kW of Power. The easy opening tailgate and upward opening rear window section plus towing capacity of 1 100 kg braked / 720 kg unbraked allows for easy packing and considerable versatility.
A modern vehicle for a modern lifestyle. Stay connected with the Touchscreen IntelliLink Infotainment System where anything to do with connectivity and sound is at your fingertips. Cruise Control further enhances the comfortable drive in this great looking, practical MPV which sports colour-coded bumpers, door handles and side mirrors to match the body colour.
The introduction of the Combo Life compliments the existing Opel range in South Africa, offering a vehicle between the conventional Passenger and the SUV, with added functionality to suit this market.
Opel’s ongoing vision to supply quality vehicles with high specifications at best pricing, continues with the Combo Life. With no extra costs for additional features the customer knows the price they see is the price they pay. You get so much more than expected!
Present Opel models available in South Africa include the Adam, Corsa, Astra, Crossland X, Mokka X, Grandland X and Combo Cargo. The Vivaro and Movano Cargo models join the LCV range line-up with the Combo and Zafira Life models rounding off the people mover range during 2019/2020.
As ‘Best Buy Car of Europe 2019’ the Combo Life continues a strong Opel tradition. In recent years the Rüsselsheim-based carmaker was twice successful in the AUTOBEST Award. The Opel Corsa took the title outright in 2007 and 2015. AUTOBEST presents the ‘Best Buy Car of Europe’ since 2000.
