Take A Better Look At the Opel Karl And Vauxhall Viva In 185 New Photos

Opel and Vauxhall are preparing for the first deliveries of their all-new Karl and Viva city cars, which are scheduled to arrive in dealerships next month.

Priced from €9,500 in Germany and £7,995 in the UK, the city car is a 3,680mm long, 1,480mm high five-door hatchback with space for up to five people thanks to a 2,385mm long wheelbase.

The Opel Karl and Vauxhall Viva will be available with the new generation IntelliLink infotainment system and Opel OnStar (Vauxhall OnStar) personal connectivity and service assistant – from fall 2015 for the Karl, early 2016 for the Viva.

Both models are offered with a single engine option, a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine producing 75PS (74hp) which returns 4.3 l/100 km (65.7 mpg UK) and emits 99 g/km CO2 when equipped with the optional ecoFlex package. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

In terms of practicality, the Karl and Viva offer an asymmetrical (40:60) split foldable rear seat back which enables a flexible loading space. With the rear seat backs folded down, the city car offers 1,013 liters (35.7 cu-ft) of stowage up to its roof.

Standard safety features include six airbags, ABS, traction control TCPlus, stability control ESPPlus and the Hill Start Assist. A Lane Departure Warning system is available as an option.

The Opel Karl will be offered with three equipment levels (Essentia, Enjoy and Cosmo), while the Vauxhall Viva will be available with two trim levels (SE and SL). Both models will be built in South Korea.
