Opel’s latest addition to the Karl lineup has officially arrived at dealerships. The Karl Rocks and its soft-roading inspired design cues can now be had with a base price of €12,600 ($13,433 USD).
The Karl Rocks follows in the Adam Rocks’ footsteps by offering off-road attributes to the A-segment vehicle’s package. Plastic cladding complements a raised ride height of 0.71 inches to portray a more rugged appearance for the normally cutesy looking Karl. Roof racks also add an additional element of functionality. The Karl Rocks may be small, but it’ll swallow quite a bit of stuff, too. Inside, nearly 36 cubic feet of trunk space is present with a 40/60 rear seat split as standard.
As for power, it’s small, just like the Karl Rocks. A 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine is standard, pushing out just 75 horsepower, is paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. Though, Opel will also offer its Easytronic automated five-speed transmission, as well as a 1.0-liter LPG-powered lump of propulsion as options.
