The Monza is said to preview future Vauxhall design language, while the model also includes a super-efficient new range-extender drivetrain and a revolutionary interior multimedia system.
“The Monza concept is nothing less than our vision of the automotive future,” according to Vauxhall-Opel chief Karl-Thomas Neumann.
The 4690mm-long coupé was penned by Vauxhall’s British chief of design, Mark Adams. Its look is the next step from Vauxhall’s current design language, introduced with the Insignia in 2008. It will refine the look of the marque’s range, adding in more flowing surfaces, more precise lines, more prominent side sills and wheel arches and more sweeping contours.
Dramatic gullwing doors give access to an airy four-seat cabin, with entry and exit aided by the absence of B-pillars. Despite its sporty silhouette and low 1310mm height, boot capacity is rated at 500 litres — and there is plenty of headroom for passengers, since the whole cabin sits around 150mm lower than in a comparably sized production model.
