Review

The second generation of the Opel Movano premiered in 20110. The debut of the van also marked a new Opel model strategy to strengthen and expand its commercial vehicle range.

Designs and body variants

The new Movano has a new front with trademark style elements like the trapezoidal-shaped grille, horizontal chrome bar with redesigned Opel logo and signature crease on the front hood. 

The cabin is 5.7 centimeters longer than that of the outgoing model and boasts a host of practical storage compartments. It also features multi-adjustable seats and a height-adjustable steering column.

The new Opel Movano provides a wide range of body variants. The range includes panel vans (available in four vehicle lengths and three roof heights), crew vans, platform, chassis and crew cabs as well as combi versions. Vehicles are also equipped for special conversions or enhancements, and some special versions – like dropside and tipper – are available ex-works.

The new Movano now has four different vehicle lengths that extend to more than four meters of load length and a higher load volume, with up to 17 cubic meters in the L4 version.  This latest generation also includes rear-wheel drive variants, available with both single and dual rear wheels, which gives it a great gross vehicle weight range of up to 4.5 tonnes.

FWD models feature low loading sill heights for easy access to the cargo area, while sliding side and rear wing doors with apertures offer maximum loading and unloading convenience. Rear doors have a standard opening aperture of 180 degree, while the 270 degree version is optional.

The standard sliding side load door offers a maximum width of 1270 mm (1050 mm on L1 versions), enabling Europallets to be loaded sideways, and a maximum height of 1780 mm. A wide rear door aperture of 1580 mm and a maximum height of up to 1820 mm along with increased load-through width between wheel arches of 1380 mm ease loading, while straight body sides ensure space efficiency.

Chassis and suspension

For the first time, the new Movano offers rear-wheel drive (RWD) versions in addition to the front-wheel drive (FWD) models. The RWD variants give added traction on unpaved road and increased towing capability.  Dual rear wheels are available in panel van, chassis and crew cab formats. Dual rear wheels are standard on 4.5 t gross vehicle weight models and optionally available for 3.0 t. FWD models feature transversally installed engines while RWD versions have longitudinally fitted engines.

The cargo areas of the panel van variants offer accessibility, loading ease, standing height and cargo capacity. The vehicle can accommodate up to 17 cubic meters, with a maximum load area length of up to 4.4 meters. Gross vehicle weight extends up to 4.5 tonnes, and maximum payload up to 2.5 tonnes, depending on body variant. The new Movano as a towing vehicle, is able to tow up to 3.0 tonnes. Maximum gross train weight is now 7.5 tonnes.

The Opel Movano’s chassis is tuned for agile handling and comfortable suspension while fully loaded and when empty.

ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) are provided as standard in all models. The electronic stability program ESP is also standard in all rear-wheel drive models, and is available as an option with front-wheel drive versions. Passive safety features include a driver airbag as standard, as well as three-point safety belts with belt tensioner and belt force limiter. Further elements such as passenger airbag, seat-integrated side airbags or headlamps with cornering light can be ordered as optional extras.

Engines and transmissions

A new family of four-cylinder common-rail diesel engines (2.3 CDTI) is available. The engines are available in three output levels with 74 kW/100 hp, 92 kW/125 hp and 107 kW/146 hp. With an optional 105-liter tank, the operating range is nearly 1,400 kilometers.

Despite a lower displacement than the outgoing model, the 2.3 CDTI delivers higher levels of torque at lower revolutions. Moreover, the valve train is chain-driven for lower maintenance costs.

All variants come with six-speed manual transmission. Automated Easytronic transmission is optionally available for the two more powerful output versions. All three engines meet Euro 4 emissions standards. Engines can also be ordered with a diesel particulate filter.

Opel


Opel entered the automobile business in 1899, selling Opel-Lutzmann cars, the first of them being the “Patent Motor Car”. Partnership between Opel and Lutzman was terminated in 1901 and Adam Opel’s son initiated a new contract with the French carmaker Darracq that allowed the German company to built Opel-Darracq cars. These cars received their chassis from Darracq and their bodies from Opel.
