Vauxhall Frontera Returns: A Spacious and Fun Electric (and Hybrid) SUV

Vauxhall has pulled the wraps off the all-new Frontera, a bold and spacious SUV that injects some excitement into the electric car segment. Available in both a fully electric variant and efficient 48-volt mild hybrid models, the Frontera caters to a wide range of drivers seeking a practical and stylish everyday car with a touch of personality.

“The new Vauxhall Frontera combines rugged design, exceptional space, clever features, and efficient powertrains,” says James Taylor, Managing Director at Vauxhall. “This car is perfect for urban and suburban environments, with the zero-emission electric version available right from launch.”

Rugged Design with a Modern Edge

The Frontera boasts a fresh take on Vauxhall’s signature design language. The upright front profile and unique proportions create a sense of spaciousness while maintaining a tough and modern aesthetic. The now-iconic black Vizor grille dominates the front fascia, seamlessly integrating the Eco LED headlights and Vauxhall griffin emblem. Supported by a trapezoidal air intake below, the Vizor emphasizes the Frontera’s strong and sturdy stance.

Sharp lines and a distinctive C-pillar visually enhance the cabin space, while pronounced wheel arches add a touch of muscularity. The well-known Vauxhall wing lighting signature gets a modern makeover with three separate lighting blocks divided by body-colored accents.

Intelli-Seat: Comfort and Connectivity

The Frontera’s interior seamlessly blends modern design with practicality. Wide horizontal elements across the dashboard and doors create a sense of airiness, while the fully digital Pure Panel cockpit with dual 10-inch displays and Multimedia infotainment system takes center stage. Vauxhall prioritizes a clean and user-friendly experience to minimize distractions, ensuring a stress-free driving experience.

Innovation continues with the introduction of Vauxhall’s Intelli-Seat technology. This patented feature incorporates a pressure-relieving slot in the front seats, promoting exceptional comfort on long journeys. The seats themselves are not only sculpted and stylish, but also crafted with sustainable recycled materials in some configurations.

The fun factor is further amplified by a collection of clever solutions. A cooled wireless charging pad and ample USB ports throughout the cabin keep devices powered and connected. A unique strap in the center console secures tablets, while additional storage compartments with rubber lining eliminate unwanted noise from loose items. Passengers in the second row can take advantage of smartphone pockets integrated into the front seatbacks.

Spaciousness and Efficiency: The Everyday Companion

The Frontera impresses with its cargo capacity. With the rear seats upright, the boot offers over 460 liters of space, expanding to a massive 1,600 liters with the seats folded down. The 60:40 split rear bench and a standard second load floor provide further versatility. For those who require even more cargo space, optional functional roof rails can be added, allowing for a maximum roof load of 200kg.

Electrification and Performance

Like all new Vauxhall models, the Frontera prioritizes both style and responsible performance. Customers can choose between a fully electric variant with zero emissions and efficient internal combustion engines with 48-volt mild hybrid technology.

The expressive design, clever features, and the option of a fully electric or hybrid powertrain solidify Vauxhall’s commitment to electrification. By the end of 2024, the brand aims to offer an electric version of every car in its lineup.
