5 Excellent reasons to pre-order the NEW Opel Combo 1.6 Turbo Diesel Panel Van from Williams Hunt

The light commercial vehicle segment in South Africa is poised to be redefined in 2019, all thanks to the addition of the all-new Opel van range. The range includes the Opel Combo Life, a people carrier and exceptional family vehicle, as well as the Opel Combo Cargo, a newly developed panel van that has already scooped up the prestigious IVOTY* (International Van of the Year) award.

If you are a business owner, there is a lot to be excited about. Here are five excellent reasons to pre-order the NEW Opel Combo 1.6 Turbo Diesel Panel Van from Williams Hunt:

It's secure

When crime is a consideration, it makes more sense to invest in a panel van than a bakkie. The lower load beds keeps your cargo and equipment out of sight, with metal sheeting that blocks out the back and sides.

It makes life easier for drivers & occupants

The Opel Combo has been designed with drivers and occupants in mind. It's spacious enough for a comfortable ride and the extensive safety kit includes everything from a full-height steel bulk head to separate the cargo area from the passengers, to traction control and hill start assist.

It's a moving billboard!

A branded panel van can take your marketing message to upwards of 70 000 road users daily in metropolitan areas. That's invaluable exposure.

It's a breeze to operate

The van's lower load floor makes for quick, fuss-free loading and off-loading off cargo, equipment and tools.

There is infinite room for customisation

The van's interior is adaptable to suit the needs of countless businesses. You can add shelves, tool boxes, refrigeration, compressors, tool boxes, etc. to your heart's content.


The Opel Combo will reach our showroom floors in May 2019, in limited numbers due to international demand. Get in touch now to secure your order with a R5000 deposit, so we may commit to pricing.
