The Combos share platforms, vital components and some body panels with contemporary subcompact [[Opel Corsa]]s, which used to be a typical pedigree for such a vehicle. The generations are denoted '''A''' and '''B''' in typical Opel fashion, but Holden applied the codes '''SB''' and '''XC''' respectively, reflecting the relation with SB and XC [[Holden Barina]]s (Opel Corsa B and C, respectively)

Following the increasing popularity of [[leisure activity vehicle]]s, Opel launched a 5-passenger version of the Combo in 1995, called '''Opel Combo Tour'''. It differed from the panel van version by having the cargo section fitted with side windows and a three-passenger split-folding bench seat.

Although Combo's primary market is Europe, it has also been sold on other continents, in markets where GM traditionally use Opel-derived models. As the [[Azambuja]] Opel plant in [[Portugal]] is the sole production site of all Combos, all those models were replaced gradually with Combo C in 2001. The Combo was also produced in relatively small numbers by [[SAIC Motor|SAIC]] subsidiary SAIC-Yizheng as the "Shanghai Auto (Shangqi) ''Saibao'' SAC6420", equipped with the same 1.6 litre engine and five-speed manual transmission as the [[Buick Sail]]. Built from 2002 until 2005, there was also a DeLuxe version available, with alloy wheels and other extras.<ref>{{cite web | url = http://www.carnewschina.com/2011/12/08/spotted-in-china-shanghai-auto-saibao-panel-van/ | publisher = CarNewsChina.com | first = Tycho | last = De Feyter | date = 2011-12-08 | title = Spotted in China: Shanghai Auto Saibao panel van }}</ref>
