In case the last round of Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva/Chevrolet Spark photos left you wanting more, World Car Fans has come out with more spy shots of the all-new subcompact undergoing tests in Europe. The new entry-level model will replace the Agilia in Opel and Vauxhall’s lineup and will also be sold in North America, replacing the current-gen Spark.
The Karl/Viva variations of the five-door hatch will appear aesthetically similar, while the Spark’s styling will be standalone. WCF spotted the Opel and Chevrolet models testing alongside each other earlier this year and the Chevy appeared to have a different front fascia and different taillights, among other changes.
Much like the current Spark, the next-gen model will have very short overhangs, a rearward sloping roofline and a high belt line. The interior will have more premium materials and may share some parts with the D2XX-based Chevrolet Cruze, while the cabin of Opel/Vauxhall models may appear similar to the recently released Corsa.
In Europe, the Viva/Karl will have many of the same powertrain options as the Adam city car, including Opel’s all-new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine. Three- and four-cylinder engines from Chevrolet’s new line of Ecotec motors, which were announced alongside the all-new Cruze, will find their way under the hood of the next-generation Spark.
More details on the Karl/Viva should be released when it makes its debut sometime next year.
