Isuzu, the Japanese automaker, produced the mid-size SUV known as the MU between 1989 and 2004, which also went by other names such as Isuzu Ascender, Chevrolet Captiva, or Opel and Vauxhall Frontera. Despite its classic appearance, the MU spanned two generations before its discontinuation in 2004.

Decades later, Stellantis decided to revive the Opel Frontera nameplate for a modern iteration, marking the third generation of the Opel and Vauxhall Frontera. Unlike its predecessor, this version falls into the subcompact class (B segment) and embraces a crossover lifestyle over traditional SUV characteristics.

Opel teased the Frontera’s return in January, hinting at its potential to replace the single-generation Opel and Vauxhall Crossland, which has been in production since 2017.

Aligning with Opel’s modern strategy, the revived Frontera adopts the brand’s current styling, similar to the Astra or Mokka, offering a “fun and spacious” new model available in both all-electric and ICE-powered versions equipped with 48-volt hybrid technology.

The Opel Frontera also offers ample luggage space of 460 liters (16.27 cu. ft.) in the trunk, expandable to 1,600 liters (56.5 cu. ft.) with the rear seats folded.

While technical specifications for the powertrain options have not been revealed, Opel promises highly efficient drives with 48-volt hybrid technology. The Opel Frontera represents a new chapter in the brand’s lineup, combining modern styling, advanced technology, and versatility in a compact crossover SUV.
