Opel Agila: Official Teaser Images Released
Several months prior to its Frankfurt Motor Show debut this September, Opel has released the first official teaser images of the next generation Agila mini. Based on a new platform the 2008 Agila has grown in dimensions measuring in at 3.740 mm in length, 1.680 mm in width and 1.590 mm in height (current Agila: 3.500 mm, 1.620 mm & 1.695 mm respectively). In contrast to the current Agila’s which looks nothing more than it really is; a rebadged Suzuki Wagon R+, the 2008 model’s exterior design blends Corsa and Meriva styling elements. The interior, despite its two-tone dashboard is quite frugal in design, especially when one compares it to the Agila’s most important adversary, the Fiat Panda.
Engine-wise Opel’s new mini will be available with three engine options, two petrol 1.0 & 1.2-liter delivering 56 & 86 Hp respectively and a 1.3 turbodiesel with 75 Hp. According to Opel, the new Agila will be on sale in Europe next spring
