2019 Vauxhall / Opel Combo Life first view

With Vauxhall and Opel now owned by Groupe PSA, it’s unsurprising that the next-generation Combo van is essentially a rebadged version of the all-new Citroën Berlingo / Peugeot Partner.

The first variant to be unveiled is the people-carrying Combo Life ‘leisure activity vehicle’. Based on the EMP2 platform (which already underpins numerous models such as the Peugeot 5008 and Vauxhall Grandland X), it’s going to be offered with a choice of 4.40 metre (14’ 5”) or 4.75 metre (15’ 7”) body lengths.

Both sizes feature two rear sliding doors and they can be specified with either five or seven seats. Luggage capacity varies between 597 litres and 2,693 litres.

Despite the obvious commercial vehicle origins, an impressive equipment array has been developed for the Combo Life. Available technologies include Automatic Cruise Control, Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, a head-up display, Advanced Park Assist and Flank Guard (a low-speed collision detection system).

Engine details have yet to be confirmed. However, a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel units is promised, along with five-speed manual, six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions.

Combo Life production will take place in Vigo, Spain and Mangualde, Portugal. Deliveries are due to begin late this year.
