The Opel German based carmaker is reportedly working on a new entry-level model, which will be called Karl, the model coming as a five-door city car.
The Opel Karl was thus recently caught on shots by spy photographers from Inautonews online magazine, while being tested on the tracks wearing some heavy camouflage.
The Opel Karl will join the Adam and the Corsa model, and is believed to be officially unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, next March.
The Opel Karl will aim to compete against the Dacia Sandero as well as the Hyundai i10, rumored to pack some engines borrowed from the Adam model.
We might be talking here about three- or four-cylinder units, which also includes the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged unit, capable of developing a good 115 horsepower and 166 Nm of torque.
The model will be offered in Europe, costing less than 10,000 euros, while in the UK, the model will be sold as the Vauxhall Viva, from 7,000 GBP.
