Leaked: new and also electric Opel Frontera

Electrical leakage

Leaked: Opel Frontera

The Opel Crossland will be succeeded this year by a completely new and, above all, different model. This is the brand new and electric Opel Frontera!

There is undoubtedly a lot of frustration behind the management tables in Rüsselsheim. Opel has planned the official unveiling of the Frontera for later, but thanks to Cochespias.net, an image has already appeared online of what is most likely the new Frontera.

The Opel Frontera will replace the aging Crossland. It will be a technical sister model of the Citroën (ë-)C3, but it is of course a considerable size larger. The Opel Frontera is therefore primarily a version of the new Citroën C3 Aircross adapted for the European market and for Opel. The new C3 Aircross shares its platform with the smaller (ë-)C3, but is not yet for sale in Europe. Citroën is already selling the new C3 Aircross in India and various South American markets, among others. It is therefore not very surprising that the Frontera that we see in these photos shares most of its body with the C3 Aircross. The new Citroën C3 Aircross in Europe will not only go to Opel, because Citroën will also receive it here, but in a visually modified form. The new model has very little to do with Opel’s previous SUV called Frontera. That earlier Opel Frontera – actually an Isuzu MU – was a straight-up all-terrain vehicle, while the new Frontera is a real crossover.

The Opel Frontera does not have the (e-)CMP platform like the Mokka, but the Smart Car Platform from Stellantis. As mentioned, this is also included under the new Citroën C3 and is also included under the new Fiat Panda. Whether the electric powertrains from the Citroën ë-C3 will come to the Frontera? Possible, but it is also not excluded that the SUV may also draw from the powertrain pool of the higher positioned Mokka. More about that later, no doubt. Don’t just count on electric versions. Just like the Citroën C3, versions of the Frontera will probably also be available with mild-hybrid machines.
