The new Opel Frontera will debut in Irish showrooms later this, with price and equipment to be announced closer to launch.

The Frontera is the first series model to carry the new Opel Blitz logo, sitting at the centre of the Opel Vizor which integrates Eco LED headlamps. The side profile is dominated by what Opel calls a “distinctive C-pillar, which visually splits the spacious cabin”. At the same time, the rear gets split-type LED taillights, the Opel ‘Blitz’ logo, and ‘Frontera’ text on the tailgate.

Inside, Opel says wide horizontal decors on the instrument panel and doors visually widen the already airy cabin. There’s two 10-inch displays and multimedia infotainment system, as well as a new steering wheel. According to Opel, the inside of the Frontera has been designed “with a clean, detoxed user experience to avoid any form of digital stress”.

The newcomer also caters for those who prefer to rely on their own mobile device by offering an optional innovative smartphone station. With a dedicated app, the user’s smartphone becomes the vehicle’s infotainment control panel, also interacting with the steering wheel buttons.

There’s a cooled wireless charger and two USB ports available in the front and a further two USB ports available in the second row. Larger devices that would normally not fit into the cabin properly, such as tablets, can be safely stored in the centre console thanks to a flexible strap that holds them in place.

Further open storage areas in the cabin feature rubber lining preventing rattling and sliding. Second row passengers can take advantage of the integrated smartphone pockets in the back rests of the front seats.

The patented Intelli-Seat feature in the front seats, said by Opel to relieve pressure on the tailbone, ensures “outstanding comfort even during long journeys”. The seat fabrics are also available in a fully sustainable recycled material.

With the back seats up, Opel says the new Frontera offers over 460 litres of luggage space in the boot, while with the seats folded down, the capacity increases to up to 1,600 litres. Additional versatility is provided by the 60:40 split of the rear bench while a second load floor comes as standard.

Furthermore, customers who need to take even more luggage on their journeys or want to take full advantage of the roof load of more than 200kg can choose the optional functional roof rails.
