Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Opel’s ground-breaking concept will showcase the brand’s next generation design philosophy.
Opel is reviving the Monza nameplate in order to showcase the carmaker’s future vision and design targets. Or as CEO, Karl-Thomas Neumann puts it: “This car is a study that will have a long-term impact on the next generation of Vauxhall and Opel models.” The Monza Concept focuses on efficiency and connectivity, areas Opel has singled out as top priorities for its future lineup. Via its architecture, use of materials, aerodynamics and powertrain, “outstanding efficiency” has apparently been achieved.
On the connectivity side of things, the infortainment system is taking a “quantum leap” in development, like the original Monza, which was the first car on the market to feature a digital dashboard display. Moving towards a more lithe and athletic look, the new styling language is most evident in the front fascia with a low stance, defined hood and striking headlamp graphics atop two characteristic blades. Design elements that nod to the original Monza include its larged glazed surfaces and low belt line. Look out for the Opel Monza Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
