New 2024 Vauxhall Frontera: price, specs and release date

Written By Richard Aucock

2024 Vauxhall Frontera

The new Vauxhall Frontera small SUV has been revealed ahead of its full launch later this year.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will be a more affordable alternative to the popular Vauxhall Mokka and Vauxhall Mokka Electric. It will be a spacious small SUV with plenty of practicality for small families.

There will even be a seven-seat version of the new Vauxhall Frontera, following the initial launch of the regular five-seat model. 

The new Vauxhall Frontera will be available both as a pure electric model, called Frontera Electric, and a petrol-powered version with a fuel-saving 48V hybrid petrol engine.

The new Vauxhall Frontera is understood to be closely related to the new Citroen e-C3 and new Citroen C3 range, which arrives this summer.

Other alternatives include the Renault Captur and upcoming new Renault 4, the Volkswagen T-Cross and the value-priced MG ZS and MG ZS EV.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will be fully revealed later this year. It may go on sale before 2024 is out, with deliveries in the winter or in early 2025.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will be a value-priced small SUV. The petrol version could start from around £22,500, with the electric version likely to start around £25,000. This will be in line with affordable prices targeted by the new Citroen e-C3 and C3 line-up.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will be offered in Design, GS and Ultimate versions.

New 2024 Vauxhall Frontera: exterior and interior

The new Vauxhall Frontera has a rugged appearance, which aims to contrast with the sportier and more modern-looking Vauxhall Mokka. It has plenty of SUV-style cues, including pronounced wheelarches, a boxy profile and upright front end.

The new Vauxhall Frontera has a distinctive black ‘vizor’ at the front end. This blends the eco LED headlights into a closed grille carrying the central Vauxhall griffin. The LED daytime running light pattern is distinctive.

The new Vauxhall Frontera has a bold C-pillar at the rear, which can be enhanced with two-tone paint. It also has a wraparound rear screen and eye-catching split tail lamps – plus bold ‘Frontera’ lettering on the bootlid.

Inside, the new Vauxhall Frontera has a modern appearance with dual 10.0-inch displays as part of the wraparound Vauxhall Pure Panel. It has wireless connectivity (with a cooling function to protect smartphones from overheating) and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Pleasingly, the new Vauxhall Frontera features a row of physical buttons on the centre console, to help make it easier to use. The square steering wheel will make it easier to get in and out, and we like some of the smart silver touches throughout the interior.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will have particularly comfortable front seats. There’s a patented ‘Intelli-Seat’ feature for the front chairs, comprising a slot that relieves pressure on the tailbone – Vauxhall reckons they’ll stay comfortable even on long journeys.

The new Vauxhall Frontera will offer five seats as standard – and, in the near future, a seven-seat version with three rows of seats will be launched. 

Other smart features inside the new Vauxhall Frontera include a flexible strap in the centre console that allows larger items such as tablets to be safely carried. Open stowage areas throughout the cabin have rubber lining to stop rattles and keep things from sliding around.

The new Vauxhall Frontera promises impressive practicality. Even with the rear seats up, it will have a 460-litre boot. With them folded, it expands to 1600 litres. Optional functional roof rails allow roof boxes with a load of more than 200kg to be carried.

Rear seat passengers in the new Vauxhall Frontera also get integrated smartphone pockets in the backrests of the front seats.

Size-wise, the new Vauxhall Frontera is 4380mm long, placing it between the smaller Vauxhall Mokka (4151mm) and the larger new Vauxhall Grandland (4650mm).

New 2024 Vauxhall Frontera: engines and gearboxes

The new Vauxhall Frontera will offer a choice of both pure electric and mild hybrid petrol powertrains.

The new Vauxhall Frontera Electric will use a new EV-specific platform called 'Smart Car'. It will have a 113PS electric motor and offer a choice of two batteries. The regular battery will have a range of more than 186 miles, and a 'long range' version will have a range of around 248 miles. 

The new Vauxhall Frontera Electric will have 100kW DC fast-charge capability, so will be able to top up from 20% to 80% in around 25 minutes at a public rapid charger.

The petrol-powered new Vauxhall Frontera uses a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo engine with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. This clever technology includes a 28PS electric motor for "significantly lower" CO2 emissions. Called the Vauxhall Frontera Hybrid, it will offer either 100PS or 136PS outputs, both paired with a six-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. 

Like all small SUVs, the new Vauxhall Frontera will have a space-efficient front-wheel drive setup. It should combine nimble handling with a decent ride quality. It will have light steering, good visibility and a comprehensive array of safety assist technology.

The Vauxhall Frontera name was first used in the early 1990s, on a rugged-looking 4x4 that was derived from a mud-plugging Isuzu.

The new Vauxhall Frontera Electric will be a value-priced EV – but there will also be a cheaper petrol-powered alternative using fuel-saving mild hybrid technology.

The new Vauxhall Frontera is a small SUV, similar in size to today’s Vauxhall Crossland as well as rivals such as the Renault Captur and Volkswagen T-Cross. It won’t be as large as the original 1990s Vauxhall Frontera.
