More than just a new entry to the city car ranks, this is Opel’s response to models like the Mini and Fiat 500, which have added some charm and character to the city car segment. The firm is eager to be seen as more than just a functional and mainstream carmaker. As a result Opel is eager that the new car will be easy to personalise, with a host of options.

Beneath the new exterior is Opel’s new small car platform that will also feature in the next-generation Corsa. The engine range is expected to feature both petrol and diesel three-cylinder powertrains but an all-electric version is also in the pipeline. Last week the firm released this official “spy” photograph of the car.

It will be available next year at FM AutoCentre, Carlow.
