Review of Frontera

The Frontera was first introduced in 1991. The model was produced until the beginning of the 21st century. It was one of Opel’s first attempts to compete in the growing SUV segment. The Frontera was developed in cooperation with Isuzu and was closely related to the Isuzu MU and later the Isuzu Wizard. The first generation (1991-1998) was available with 2.0-liter to 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engines, as well as turbo-diesel: a 2.3-liter and later a 2.8-liter. In 1998, a second generation of the Frontera was introduced, built until 2004. This model was available with 2.2-liter gasoline and diesel engines.

Opel will also eventually come out with a new Opel Manta, which will be a battery-electric SUV coupe. The Manta nameplate was also previously used by Opel.
