​Vauxhall confirms 248-mile range for new Frontera alongside seven-seater option​

​Vauxhall’s new Frontera will get a top range of 248 miles when it arrives later this year, the brand has confirmed. 

The SUV - which brings back a name first applied to one of Vauxhall’s chunky four-wheel-drives from the late 1980s - will be available in one of two electric setups capable of delivering either 186 or 248 miles. Both get a 113hp electric motor, too, as well as 100kW charging capability. 

Vauxhall has also announced that the new Frontera will be available as a seven-seater, though this setup will only be on mild-hybrid versions which combine a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol with 48-volt technology. 

However all cars feature Vauxhall’s ‘Pure Panel’ layout which combines two 10-inch displays and a newly designed steering wheel with a variety of physical controls for key settings and features. Wireless smartphone connectivity comes as standard, too, alongside a pair of USB charge ports at the front of the cabin and two at the rear. 

Both front seats get Vauxhall’s new Intelli-Seats technology which aims to boost comfort over long journeys, while all seats inside are trimmed in fully recycled materials. Around the back you’ll find a 450-litre boot which can be expanded to 1,600 litres when you fold down the rear seats. 

Vauxhall has also stated that the Frontera will be available with a specially-designed roof rail and tent setup to help transform it into a home away from home. A bespoke ladder helps give access to the roof tent when it’s in place. 

Slotting between the smaller Mokka and larger Grandland, the new Frontera will be offered in three trim levels - Design, GS and Ultimate - with full UK pricing and specification announced ‘at a later date’, according to the firm.
