Opel has pulled the sheet off its next-generation Combo compact van, retiring the previous design that went virtually unchanged for 10 years. This all-new model will come in both short and long wheelbase forms that measure 108.5 in. (2,755 mm) and 122.2 in. (3,105 mm), respectively and will be flexible enough for both five and seven-seat configurations, as well as a utility-oriented panel variant.
As far as cargo capacity goes, the short wheelbase Combo will be able to fill up 134.2 cu-ft. (3,800L) of cargo space, while the longer model can fill up 164.2 cu-ft (4,600L). There is also six choices of engines, with four of them being diesels, while one is a 1.4L gasoline engine and another 1.4L utilizing compressed natural gas. All powertrains are available with start/stop for improved fuel economy and a range for five and six-speed manual transmissions.
The new Combo will be manufactured in Turkey, and will be related to the Fiat Doblò. But all of that aside, who out there thinks that the Combo would do great in North America?
