Suzuki and Opel / Vauxhall have announced new versions of their mini-people movers which will be launched next year.
Built at Suzuki’s European factory in Hungary the new models will replace the current Vauxhall (Opel) Agila and the Japanese car maker’s Wagon R. While Vauxhall is retaining the Agila name, Suzuki is calling its version the Splash. Both cars will feature three engines – two petrol and one diesel. The new Agila will be available for the first time with an auto gearbox and will offer a maximum of 1,150 liters cargo space.
The two petrol engines will be of one-liter and 1.2-litre capacities while the diesel will be the 1.3-litre CDTi engine currently featured in the Vauxhall Corsa. Both models will feature electronic stability programs as standard. The pair will make their debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and are due to go on sale in the spring. Further details including prices will be announced later. (icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk)
