With modifications to the Frontera, one tries to improve the quality. Some of it perhaps depends on the not always correct production in England, but can be not changed. The basic construction is untouched, but the given as before two versions move from the dimensions technically more closely together. Thereby the two-door car receives more room at the back, while the four-door car will be more compact, whatever will benefits its characteristics in terrain.

Under the sheet metal changes in addition to the suspension (steering rack, linkage of rear axle), especially the drive. Only the four-cylinder petrol engine remains, introduced in 1995. Additional there is a V6 from Isuzu, the with its four overhead camshafts is still a bit strange for a SUV. In any case, this Frontera now can compete with the faster competitors.

Much more interesting is the (real) new diesel engine, even already with four valves per cylinder. As the only car in theOpel range provided with displacement of 2.2 liters, it makes an important contribution to the economy with powerful torque. Thus this does not dominate and the comfort is not neglected, Opel offers the Frontera now also with converter automatic. Apart from that, the changing public taste obeying, even at the SUV the equipment is now dignified to luxurious.

One accused of the Frontera B, that it had overcome the teething troubles of its predecessor. But as so often, it does not help. After the euphoria at the beginning decline of the sales. After the euphoria at the beginning decline the sales. Probably as a a consequence, the successor receives the name 'Antara'. Of course, the other manufacturers have did not remain inactive, whereby the only slowly gradable total sales will be divided by more suppliers. 04/11               Top of page               Index
