Frankfurt 2013: Opel Monza Concept Revealed [Live Photos]
text size: A- A+
The Monza’s athletic allure hints at overall efficiency. Its 4.69 meter-long silhouette is sculpted after ocean waves hitting the shore, giving the car a look of “sharp and light”, something similar to those ceramic knives you see on teleshopping. The concept also ditches the traditional B-pillar, leaving the two huge doors open in a spectacular gullwing style, providing good interior access for up to four passengers.
Speaking about the interior, the 1.31 meter-tall concept offers plenty of passenger and luggage space thanks to its airy design and low, slim-sculpted seats. Another interesting feature is represented by the high-tech dashboard that uses 18 LED projectors to create a continuous, adaptable multifunctional display. This means that drivers won’t find standard separate displays, but a wide sculpted dashboard which uses a single projection surface, fully customizable for each user.
Several hybrid powertrains were considered for the Monza Concept, but this one showcased here is powered by an electric one aided by a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) range extender - a three-cylinder 1-liter SIDI turbo engine, which also makes its premiere at the Motor Show.
