Opel has announced a new range-topping powertrain for the Combo Life people carrier.
The MPV can now be had with a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine that makes 130 PS (128 hp) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque at 1,750 rpm.
The PSA-sourced engine is linked exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission and start/stop, with an NEDC-rated average fuel economy as low as 5.3 l/100 km (53.3 mpg UK) and corresponding CO2 emissions of 121 g/km (for the SWB five-seat model). The new power plant meets the Euro 6d emission standard, thanks in part to the Gasoline Particulate Filter (GPF).

The Combo Life powered by the 1.2-liter turbo engine accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 186 km/h (115 mph). Prices for the Opel Combo Life equipped with this engine start at €27,200 (approximately $30,300) for the base Edition trim level in Germany (including VAT).
In addition to the new engine and automatic transmission, the Combo Life 1.2 Turbo gains new standard features including a six-stage adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and armrest, heated multifunction steering wheel wrapped in leather, front power windows, and air conditioning.
An infotainment system with an eight-speed color touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is also standard, as are several driver assistance systems. Those include automatic cruise control and speed limiter, front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, hill-start assist, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and driver drowsiness alert.
