Opel revealed today the new Monza Concept, which is going to have its world premiere next month at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA). The Monza Concept previews Opel's new design language and brand strategy. This is not the first time Opel uses this name for one of its models. 

The first Opel Monza had its debut at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was powered by a six-cylinder engine and it stayed into production until 1986. The new Opel Monza concept measures 4.69 meters in length and 1.31 meters in height and it has a two-door coupe body style. 
Even so, it offers plenty of luggage space. According to Opel, the Monza's boot can accommodate up to 500 liters of luggage. One of the distinctive design elements of the Opel Monza includes its doors, which open upwards, like the wings of a bird. For the interior of the Monza, Opel chose a new LED projection technology for the instrument and the infotainment displays. The whole dashboard of the Monza is used a single, customizable projection surface. The Monza uses 18 LED projectors to create this 3D display. 
The Opel Monza Concept comes with an innovative smartphone connectivity system that comes with three operating modes. In the "ME" mode, the system displays driving information only, disconnecting the smartphone. The "US" mode lets the driver connect to a group of selected people, while the "ALL" mode connects directly to the Internet. The Monza Concept previews the "Car-to-Car" and "Car-to-X" systems, meant to offer autonomous driving in the future. 

To power the Monza concept, Opel chose an electric drivetrain, with a three-cylinder 1.0 SIDI turbocharged range-extender engine.
