The Opel Grandland X marks a huge weight off the shoulders of the French automaker. Shackled by the completely underwhelming Antara, the Grandland X arrives with a new and more SUV-friendly design, a larger profile than the Crossland X, and some much-needed heritage from the Peugeot 3008, a car that has surprised a lot of people with its overall offering. The Grandland X is an all-new model, too, providing a much-needed boost for the French automaker in its fight for relevancy in the super competitive world of crossovers and SUVs.

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Corsa GSi Pricing Revealed, Starts from £18,995

Opel/Vauxhall intrigued us when they announced they are reviving the Corsa GSi pocket rocket this year, but is now losing us as they reveal how much this thing is going to cost. The GSi is now available to order in the UK with a Vauxhall badge, priced from £18,995.

So they’ve priced this tiny little thing like a family saloon, and they still expect you to pay an extra £1,900 for the GSi Plus Pack. Then again, hotted-up Opels and Vauxhalls have never been cheap. And the Corsa GSi does have some juicy specs, one has to admit. But even so, it takes a real die-hard fan to play that kind of money for a Corsa, however hot it might be, or however cool its badge may look in automotive circles.

The 150 PS, 220 Nm 1.4-litre turbo Vauxhall Corsa GSi, which is built on the VXR (OPC) chassis, is quick but not astonishingly so. It sprints form 0 to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds and taps out at 129 mph. The hot sueprmini comes with a short-ratio six-speed gearbox and a long list of features, including: 17-inch bi-colour cut alloy wheels, GSi rear roof spoiler, sports front grille, GSi air dam/bumper and side sills. The GSi also gets dark tinted rear windows, carbon effect exterior mirrors and grille bar, and LED daytime running lights. Inside, sports-style front seats, a leather-covered flat-bottom steering wheel and Navi R4.0 IntelliLink infotainment, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

As for that expensive GSi Plus pack, it adds 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, Recaro leather seats and bi-xenon headlights with cornering light. You judge if its really worth the asking price.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Vauxhall Combo Life – Pricing and Specs

Playing around with the options list, for those who want to spend more, can fix the 2019 Combo Life with such items like 1.5 liter diesel engine, a low-friction 8-speed automatic, Head-up display, Front camera system, Forward collision alert, Automatic Cruise Control with Intelligent Speed Adaptation, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Advanced Park Assist and the Panoramic Rear-View Camera, Flan Guard sensors, and  Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment systems.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi Specs and Details Revealed

A while ago Opel/Vauxhall announced the launch of a semi-hot new Corsa named after the original hot Corsa, the Corsa GSi. Now they have revealed the first technical details of the car, and we have to say it has some juicy specs. On paper at lest, we reckon this is a nicer proposition than the over-powered Corsa VXR/OPC. 

Whereas the VXR model gets 210 horsepower, which makes the Corsa like a cat on crystal meth, the Corsa GSi has a more modest 150 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque. That is easier to handle and provides pretty satisfactory performance. Acceleration from 0-62 mph takes just 8.9 seconds, and the top speed is 128 mph. It will be plenty of fun extracting that performance out of the 1.4 liter turbo engine through the short-ratio six-speed gearbox.

Having fun in this car does not come at the cost of economy, as it still manages to return 47.1mpg combined, with CO2 emissions from 139g/km. But technical goodness aside, the Corsa GSi could become a hit on account of its looks alone. The supermini features large air intaeks, a sculptured bonnet and prominent rear spoiler as its main features. There are other sporty touches, such as 18 inch wheels, chrome tailpipe and red-painted front brake calipers.




Set to hit the showrooms in September 2018, the new Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi can be specified inside the cabin with leather Recaro seats, leather steering wheel, aluminium pedals, and IntelliLink infotainment system, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

PostHeaderIcon All European Vauxhall and Opel Dealership Franchise Contracts to be Axed by Mid-2020

In an ever-growing market where customers want something new literally every day, you either adapt, or you perish. Guess Vauxhall chose the second option. As reported by Telegraph, Vauxhall and Opel are terminating the contracts of all 326 dealerships in Britain as they battle to deal with plunging sales and a changing market. Yes, all of them! Read on to know more:

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi Officially Announced

Good news for the fans of fast, tiny city cars. Opel/Vauxhall announced the launch of a new Corsa GSi later this year, introducing a dose of sportiness to the supermini’s small and efficient package. The 2019 Corsa GSi will come only as a three-door. 

That’s a shame because having only three doors does rob the hatchback of some of its inherent practicality. On the up side, the Corsa GSi looks fantastic. The GSi treatment, like Opel’s OPC and Vauxhall VXR, gives the car an aggressive look and sporty attitude. There is a vented hood at the front, along with revised bumpers with large, chrome-accented air intakes.


There is also red brake calipers, 18-inch light alloy wheels, and sport chassis. And it’s all topped off by a rear spoiler and chrome tailpipe. The main highlights of the interior include Recaro leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and  aluminium pedals. The Corsa GSi is also well-equipped, boasting stuff like IntelliLink infotainment system, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Though technical specs have not yet been released, the GSi will probably get something like 200 horsepower from a turbo four-pot.


While Corsa GSi might be a novel new thing for Opel customers in Europe, Vauxhall fans are familiar with it from original GSi launched in the UK 25 years ago. That car had a 1.6 liter 105 bhp engnie and a manual gearbox.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Combo Life Is a Leisure Activity Vehicle

LAV or leisure activity vehicle is the name Opel/Vauxhall have given to their latest family minivan, the 2019 Combo Life. The lofty title does reflect the character of the car to some extent,seeing as it is designed as versatile and practical vehicle with the needs of an active lifestyle in mind. 

That said, the term “active lifestyle” is too cool to describe a car like the Combo Life. This is what you get when you are done being young and dynamic, want to have family fun with the kids and maybe the in-laws. That is why the Combo can be ordered with five or seven and has ample space for luggage and boasts sliding rear doors so you can roll grandma in with ease. Other family-oriented features include three individual rear seats, all with ISOFIX child seat brackets, optional panoramic glass roof, and top of the line safety features.

Among the main safety highlights of the Opel/Vaushall Combo Life we have the Driver Drowsiness Alert, Rear View Camera with 180° bird’s-eye view, Head-up display, and IntelliGrip, Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Cruise Control, and Intelligent Speed Adaptation. The Combo comes in two 4.4-meter standard length version or a longer 4.75-meter long model, the former with maximum luggage capacity of 2,126 liters and the latter with 2,693 liters. Engine-wise, you can choose between turbo-charged, direct injection petrol and diesel engines, with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer

German automaker Opel first offered the Insignia in 2008, replacing the Vectra and Signum in its lineup. Also sold as a Vauxhall in Britain, a Holden Commodore in Australia, and the a Regal in China and the U.S., we’ve already seen a fastback iteration of the model offered on this side of the pond as the new 2018 Buick Regal GS. Now, Opel is offering up a hot-to-trot wagon version called the GSi Sports Tourer. The GSi nameplate was pulled from previous go-faster versions of Opel’s street cars, with previous examples including the Manta GSi and Kadett GSi from the mid-‘80s, as well as the Kadett 2.0 GSi 16V and Astra GSi and Corsa GSi. Now, followingw a full reveal at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, there’s a new one that the automaker says was designed to be both fun and practical. Outside, you’ll find long, lean, wide, and horizontal styling elements, while under the hood resides a potent turbo 2.0-liter engine, all of which combines with a substantial amount of space in back for people and things.

This is Opel’s new flagship station wagon, so it makes sense the Germans gave it the royal treatment. In fact, Opel is so certain it’ll bring the sporting goods, it included a picture of a racing suit, helmet, and gloves in the back of the trunk in the press shots. But is it really worthy of such connotations? Read on the find out.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Opel Grandland X

At the IAA motor showin Frankfurt this year Opel will present their best effort yet at making a great compact SUV. The new 2018 Opel Grandland X is pitched as “cool but practical” and it sets itself apart from the competition through a blend of style, quality, and great features. Or at least it tries. 

You get all the good stuff that made the crossover segment so popular with the 2018 Opel Grandland X. You get raised seating position, good all-round visibility, easy ingress/egress, lots of space, and a bit of offroad capability. But while most other cars of this segment are closely related in terms of looks to their hatchback siblings, the Grandland X has its own unique character and a sporty and aggressive design that makes it more appealing to younger customers. I mean, next to something like the Renault Captur this thing looks awesome. Here’s Opel’s head of design discussing the looks of the SUV in more details:

Another area where 2018 Opel Grandland X prides itself in being better than the rivals is the interior. The design and practicality of this crossover is among the best you get in the segment. The ergonomic considerations are excellent, as you can tell looking at the display in the center stack below which the switches for the infotainment, the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, and chassis controls such as traction control are logically arranged in three zones. “Overall, we have given the Grandland X an especially stylish and ergonomic cockpit, with the surfaces of the instrument panel, the center console and the complementing décor elements all being executed in high quality tactile materials, which create a rich, upmarket impression” says Adams.

Opel-Insignia_Sports_Tourer-2018-1

In recent years the station wagon body style, or estate, or tourer, or whatever it’s called in your neck of the woods has been getting increasingly more popular. That has to do mostly with the fact that wagons suddenly became beautiful. On that basis, Opel Insignia Sports Tourer should be alright since it looks really rather good.

The new wagon Insignia is pretty and it is different and classy. If you can get past the badge, especially in the UK where this car is sold as a Vauxhall, the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer really is a great choice. And we’re not basing that just on the looks. The new model is also good at being a wagon, what with a 1,640 liters – over 100 liters more than the outgoing model – boot and such technology features as Opel IntelliLux LED matrix headlights, driver aids, head-up display, OnStar connectivity, an eight-speed automatic transmission, a 360° camera and intelligent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring.

2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer comes, as before, with a broad range of petrol and diesel engines in Europe. Just make sure whichever engine you get it comes with all-wheel-drive featuring two electrically controlled multi-plate clutches. Also make sure you get FlexRide, which adapts the dampers, steering, throttle response and shift points (on automatics) independently or based on the modes ‘Standard’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Tour’, which can be selected by the driver. The new central ‘Drive Mode Control’ software is the heart and soul of the adaptive chassis. It continuously analyzes the information provided by the sensors and settings and recognizes the individual driving style.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Insignia Grand Sport

When it comes to major automotive offerings from Germany, Opel isn’t usually the first name to pop up. But it isn’t for lack of trying – the brand is well established across several international markets, with its flagship Insignia sedan leading the charge, packing premium touches at a bargain price point. Originally unveiled in 2008 at the British International Motor Show, the mid-size Insignia hasn’t failed to make the sale, with over 900,000 units moved since its introduction and a variety of accolades awarded. Now, as we quickly approach 2017, Opel says it’s dead-set on launching 17 new models, including the new-generation Insignia. Boasting a lower curb weight, more technology, a new architecture, and new styling, Opel’s next-gen flagship clearly isn’t pulling any punches.

The whole thing draws heavily from the brand’s Monza Concept, revealed in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Insignia is tasked with introducing the production side of Opel’s latest design philosophy evolution, and as such, it’s adopting a new name – Grand Sport.

It’s a title that should only be reserved those models that offer superior comfort and style for the long haul, plus adequate (or more than adequate) prowess and speed when the feeling is right.

Does the new Insignia fit the bill? Well, one quick glance at the spec sheet suggests it’s at least heading in the right direction. And that’s a good thing, because the Insignia is much more than just an Opel – swap the badges and tweak some of the equipment, and it’s a Vauxhall in the U.K., a Holden Commodore in Australia, and a Buick Regal in China and the U.S.

That makes this car extremely important to several big names, not just Opel. But the question remains – does it have what it takes to get out of the shadow of the Big German Three?

PostHeaderIcon Opel Insignia Sports Tourer

Introduced in 2008 as a replacement for the Vectra, the Insignia is Opel’s range-topping sedan and is sold in North America and China as the Buick Regal. Built on the same Epsilon II platform as the Chevrolet Malibu, the Insignia also spawned a wagon version, as well as a crossover-like model with higher ground clearance and plastic cladding. Already eight years old as of 2016, the first-generation Insignia is being replaced by a brand-new model that has been spotted in prototype form as far back as 2015.

While the sedan has shown up on public roads on many occasions and ditched some of its camouflage in the process, the wagon version, also known as the Sports Tourer, has finally been caught testing for the first time. Set to bow a few months after the four-door model, the new wagon could finally make it on U.S. soil with a Buick badge according to rumors that have been swirling around since 2015. The crossover version, called Country Tourer in Europe, could also cross the pond as the Regal Tourx, a name Buick trademarked with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The new Insignia could also find its way to Australia as the next-generation Holden Commodore now that GM decided to cease all manufacturing Down Under.

Details as to what the new Insignia Sports Tourer will bring to the table are still scant, but until Opel reveals preliminary data, let’s have a closer look at what we already know about the upcoming German wagon.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Ampera-e Debuts In Paris With 310-Mile Range

American cars rarely take center stage at European auto shows, but it has happened quite often in recent years, especially with the sixth-generation Ford Mustang and several Cadillac nameplates going global. This year’s Paris Motor Show will also feature a number of American vehicles, one of which is the Chevrolet Bolt. However, don’t go looking for it at the Chevy booth, as the compact electric car will sold in Europe under the Opel badge. And it will called the Ampera-e.

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Opel is already using it for the Euro-spec version of the Chevrolet Volt. But the extra “e” in the name makes quite a difference, hinting that new hatchback features an all-electric drivetrain. And, much like its American sibling, it promises to return an impressive range.

Specifically, Opel claims that the Ampera-e will be good for at least 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge. That’s at least 100 km more than any other vehicle in similar segments can offer and some 200 km more than the BMW i3. However, that 500-km range might not be reached in the real world. After taking into consideration factors such as road characteristics, weather conditions, driving style, and load, Opel concluded that the Ampera-e can travel for more than 380 km (236 miles).

The impressive range also comes with strong performance figures such as a 0-to-50 km/h (31 mph) sprint of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph). All these figures are courtesy of the 60-kWh battery and the 204-PS (201-horsepower) and 360-Nm (266-pound-feet) electric motor. Opel’s new electric car is scheduled to arrive in showrooms in 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Meriva

German automaker Opel first offered the Meriva in 2003, but because Opel is a subsidiary of General Motors, the model got a Chevy bowtie in South America and a Vauxhall badge in the U.K. Based on the third-generation Opel Corsa C, the Meriva was styled as a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) five-door that offered seating for five passengers and ample rear cargo space, as well as a selection of conservative gasoline and diesel engine options. In 2010, the Meriva received a second generation, with larger exterior dimensions and a new six-speed automatic transmission. A facelift followed in 2014, and now, there appears to be a third generation on the horizon. Nothing official has been revealed as of yet, but it’s expected the new model will get a crossover-esque makeover, as well as a few significant interior upgrades.

Fueling speculation is the recent release of a series of spy images, which show a test mule out on public roads and decked out in extensive camouflage. Our undercover photographers also managed to grab a few shots of the cabin, and although most of it is under wraps, we now have a good idea what the production model could offer when it comes to market.

The Meriva is one of the cars slated to arrive as the product of a strategic partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroen and GM, which joined forces in 2012 in the hopes of co-developing models for the European market. Some say the partnership is on its way to a divorce, which means the third-gen Meriva could very well be part of the first – and last – wave of vehicles put forth by the tie-up.

We’ll have to wait and see if that’s the case, but for now, read on for my speculative review on the new Opel Meriva.

PostHeaderIcon Opel GT Concept Headed to Geneva Motor Show

Opel GT-Geneva-0

Yes, this is the same Opel GT they unveiled with lots of pomp and circumstance last month. But if you remember they didn’t offer a good look at the car’s interior. Turns out they were saving it for the Geneva Motor Show. So here’s a sneak peek inside the cool cabin of the GT concept.

You know, for a car with absolutely zero production value Opel GT has way too many good features. Everybody agreed when the car was first unveiled that this design deserves a shot at competing in the sports car market, and then there was the rear-drive chassis which, at least on paper, sounded amazing.

The same is true about the interior of Opel GT. The car comes with a button-less cabin operated only via touchpad and voice control, or as Opel calls is their “Human Machine Interface (HMI)”. It’s a self-learning system recognizes the driver’s habits and adapts to his or her needs such as favorite music, temperature and route. It actually speaks to the driver the way, we imagine, a butler would take your order. It even gives you spoken warnings. Pretty cool.

The modern features are complemented with a cool retro design touches such as a retro inspired steering wheel and round instruments which are in fact three-dimentional projection surfaces. The choice of material is also pretty good, from the brushed aluminum of the instrument panel, to the polished GT emblems and the shining red seatbelts which reflect the red tires.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Mokka X

Launched in 2012, the Opel Mokka has become one of the most popular mini SUVs in Europe, selling more than 500,000 units as of 2016. Although the German crossover can’t be purchased in the U.S. with an Opel badge, the Mokka is actually available on this side of the pond with a Buick grille, a different name, and slightly different features. Around since January 2013, the Buick Encore is set to receive a facelift for the 2017 model year. But, while we have yet to see it in the metal, its European twin has already been unveiled ahead of its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Unlike most facelifts, the Mokka’s is rather significant, with the crossover having received a completely restyled front fascia, an updated interior, and a new engine. More importantly, the nameplate gained an X after Mokka and will be sold as the Opel Mokka X from now on.

According to Opel, the “X” emphasizes “a more adventurous and rugged personality” and will be “the segment identifier for future Opel SUV and crossover vehicles.” In other words, expect all upcoming Opel haulers to sport an “X” badge, regardless of their names. While Opel’s new naming strategy won’t affect Buick products, I do expect the Encore to borrow many of the Mokka X’s styling cues. Keep reading for more info on Opel’s new compact crossover.

PostHeaderIcon Production Opel GT Rendered But It’s Not Happening

Production Opel GT

Turns out all the brouhaha Opel made about the debut of their new GT concept was for nothing. They have confirmed there is no plans for a production Opel GT, which is shame, because as you can see in this speculative rendering it could have been good.

The concept version of the Opel GT was way too fanciful, what with those unique doors and windows, the roof arrangement, and above all, the red tires. The thing was an homage to some of Opel’s most exciting concept cars of the yesteryear. But the layout of the car and the whole profile of it, well, it could make for a pretty cool little sports car.

What we liked most about the concept Opel GT was the chassis and drivetrain. The car is a lightweight, mid-front-engined, rear-wheel-drive car with a tiny 1.0 liter three-cylinder turbo engine out of the ADAM. It was so in tune with the times, especially in the sense that it gave a higher priority to lightness, handling, and driving feel than outright power and performance.

In turning the GT into a production model, designer X-Tomi has kept all the cool features of the car such as the profile, the stance, and the unique trimming of the windows and pillars, but added regular doors and windows and tires. We like this a lot.

PostHeaderIcon Opel Zafira

It appears Opel is working on its next iteration of the Zafira. The three-row MPV has been on the market since 2011 in its current configuration, and has grown long in the tooth. While a completely new generation would be welcomed, Opel seems to be only working up a refresh, as seen by these spy shots.

The Zafira’s history dates back to 1997 when Opel debuted the seven-seater at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany. The Zafira went on sale in 1999 and helped the General Motors’ sub-brand better compete in Europe and other parts of the world. The first generation lasted through 2004 when a completely reworked Zafira debuted for the 2005 model year.

Ironically, when Opel replaced the second-gen Zafira, it didn’t stop its production. Rather, the automaker continued to build both generations side by side, marketing the second-gen Zafira (with a slight refresh) as the Zafira Family. It was slotted as a smaller, less expensive alternative to the third-generation Zafira. The Zafira Family ended production in 2014, leaving the third-gen Zafira to soldier on.

As the refreshed Zafira gets closer to its official debut – likely for the 2017 model year – we should seem more engineering mules and spy shots like these. If you want to know the latest about the upcoming Zafira, continue reading for our full run-down of the spy shots.
