The rising popularity of diesel
With the rising cost of fuel and an increased awareness of environmental issues, fuel consumption is an important consideration for most motorists when they’re buying a vehicle. Diesel vehicles are increasing in popularity because of their reduced fuel consumption when compared to petrol variations. The running expenses of diesel models are reduced, and they offer decreased CO2 emissions. Another advantage of diesel engines is their low-speed torque, which improves overtaking and enhances the towing capabilities of these models.

As the first model in the local Opel diesel range, the Combo Cargo is an excellent investment. Its competitive cost of ownership and outstanding capabilities have ensured its popularity on the international market. The standard-wheelbase variation has a payload of 650kg while the long-wheelbase variation has a payload of 1 000kg. Its security features and comfort levels add to its appeal. A highlight of this model is its economic fuel consumption of 5L/100km.
