2019 Opel/Vauxhall Combo Life Debuts With New Styling And Tech

After the introduction of the Citroen Berlingo Multispace last week, PSA has now pulled the cover off the new Opel/Vauxhall Combo Life.

It’s basically the same vehicle as its French counterpart, albeit with different exterior styling and some tweaks inside, and it will be followed shortly by the new Peugeot Partner.

Opel’s/Vauxhall’s people carrier Leisure Activity Vehicle (LAV) comes with a front end similar to other new cars in the brand’s lineup, and it can be ordered in two versions, with a length of either 4.40m or 4.75m (14.43ft-15.58), as a five- or seven-seater.

It offers plenty of new tech, compared to its predecessor, including an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, wireless smartphone charging, 230V power socket and USB ports.

Depending on the trim level, the new Combo Life sports a heated leather steering wheel, too, along with heated front seats, auxiliary heater, head-up display, 180-degree camera system and several driver assistance systems.

The latter includes automatic cruise control, Speed Sign Recognition, Lane Keep Assist, Intelligent Speed Adaptation, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Flank Guard, Advanced Park Assist, and IntelliGrip traction control.

The fifth generation of the Combo has many storage spaces inside and a minimum boot capacity of 597 liters (21.08cu-ft) in the five-seat model, and 850 liters (30.01cu-ft) in the seven-seater. The luggage volume can be more than tripled by folding down the rear seats, reaching 2,693 liters (95.1cu-ft) in its most spacious form.

Buyers will be able to choose between a variety of petrol and diesel engines mated to five- or six-speed manual transmissions, or what the automaker calls “a segment-first” eight-speed automatic.

Opel/Vauxhall will start taking orders for the 2019 Combo Life in the first half of the year, with deliveries to commence in the second half.

    It is basically a Citroen Berlingo with an Opel face, just as the article states.

      well, the old one was basically an Fiat Dublo with an Opel face.

    I was expecting a more Opel-like interior. Instead, it’s similar to the Citroen interiors.

      This kind of van isn’t exactly known to have extense differences between the brands on which is marketed. At least PSA did a good job when it comes to every brand having its own front clip but retaining the same hood and fenders on the three products and replacing only the bumper-grille assembly and headlights.


    that’s PSA to you

  • Soon the Movano and Vivaro Renault based will be replaced the same way..

    Someone please inform Opel that it’s 2018 and this kind of *design* is not acceptable anymore.
