Opel released two trailers for the brand new model, which will bear the old name Frontera. As in the case of its predecessor, it will be an SUV, but this time exclusively with an electric drive. The novelty should become the successor of the aging Crossland.

The brand is keeping the details to itself for now. The exposed silhouette shows more angular shapes with a spoiler extending beyond the rear window. The second photo gives a glimpse of the front of the car, which is uniform, has diode lighting technology and boasts the new Opel emblem (with the designation Blitz), which – wonder of the world – resembles lightning.

It started in the nineties

The first generation of Opel Frontera was introduced in the early nineties, the Germans built the SUV on a frame chassis in cooperation with Isuzu. The range of engines was quite diverse, in addition to countless gasoline and diesel four-cylinder engines, the model also offered a 3.2-liter six-cylinder gasoline engine with an output of 205 horsepower.

Over time, the offer was supplemented by a three-door Sport version, the modernization brought coil springs and stronger brakes. From 1998, the second generation was sold (also in a shorter three-door version), which said goodbye to the car market twenty years ago. And the successor will be waiting until now.

The contemporary Frontera was not afraid of the terrain either.

The automaker says that the novelty will be the first model of the brand that will be made in a bold and clean design philosophy, which designers will gradually begin to apply to other cars as well. The creators also promise a high level of space and versatility. The car is intended to appeal mainly to customers with an active lifestyle, but also to larger families.

Opel Frontera has the shape of an honest SUV.

Further details remain a mystery for now. Opel said in an official statement that it will reveal more in the next few weeks. That the premiere was about to take place at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show? Who knows, the brand has not yet definitively confirmed its participation in the event, which returns after four years.
