This time around, this famous moniker is attached to an all-new concept car meant to showcase the future of the German brand.
The Monza concept focuses on two major motoring themes: efficiency and connectivity. These themes will be a top priority for the 6 000-strong team of engineers, technicians and designers currently working on the next generation of Opels.
In terms of design, Opel is going for lithe athleticism rather than outright muscle. This much is clear from the exterior styling. The car sits low to the ground with a body styled for aerodynamics rather than shock value. Further-developed signature Vauxhall themes are embedded in the overall look: the typical crease on the bonnet appears more three-dimensional and prominent while the chrome grille bar carrying the brand logo now sweeps up with winglets at its tips.
On the connectivity side, not a lot of information is available, other than Opel stating that the Monza will offer a quantum leap in the development of infotainment systems.
