We’ve been seeing spy shots galore of Opel’s upcoming city car — code named Junior. Thankfully, Opel has released some more details about the mini car in a creative new comic-like series, which you can view yourself by downloading it.
The comic features ten real Opel employees who discuss the launch of the new vehicle, some of whom are really anxious to give us some more details about the car. And even though they get “shushed”, we do walk away with the following tid-bits:
- New little car
- Very individual
- Really-cool 4-seater
- No cheap little stuff
- Totally new
- Bags of attitude
- You’ll love it
- Pure German engineering
- Approximately 3.70 meters long
- Three doors
- Solidly planted on its wheels
- Typical Opel design, muscular and so on
- Able to exactly suit your taste… inside and out
- Very colorful
- Junior is a nickname, not the real name of the car
- There is an “A” in the name — as is the case for every Opel passenger car
- The name will be officially unveiled May 8
The GM Authority Take
Luckily, we already know the real name of the Junior to be
Allegra (fitting with two “As’ in the name) Adam, as revealed here. And given the length dimensions of 3.70 meters (145 inches), we wonder if it will share the global mini car architecture with the Chevy Spark, which itself measures in at 3.675 meters (144.7 inches); however, we’ve also been told that the platform could be a modified Gamma shared with the sub-compact Opel Corsa.
Outside of dimensions and the platform, what we’ve seen so far about the Junior/Adam/
Allegra tells us that it will, indeed, be very stylish inside and out, will slot in under the Corsa, and will cradle an engine developed by GM (and its “partners”) in China. But the way in which the aforelisted information was revealed is very creative and unique, fitting with the younger demographic that the Junior/Allegra will undoubtedly target. We can’t wait until May 8th.
