Vauxhall to launch sub-£7k city car

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 00:00:00 -0700

Vauxhall is believed to be working on a budget city car to rival the Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1 trio unveiled earlier this month at Geneva.

According to Auto Express, the new small hatchback will be based on the Chevrolet Spark platform and will start at less than £7,000 – undercutting the firm’s current Adam model by over £4,000.

If you’re expecting a bland box on wheels like the Agila, don’t fear – as Vauxhall has reportedly said the new car will “have its own distinct personality”.

That means it’ll probably feature divisive looks as seen on the Aygo mentioned above, as well the popular Volkswagen Up!. But can Vauxhall do quirky? Take a look at the Vauxhall Adam pictured above and make your own mind up.

The new Vauxhall urban runabout is likely to get the firm’s latest 99g/km CO2 1.0-litre Ecotec engine, as seen in the Adam. There’s no word on its arrival yet – but we doubt we’ll see it before 2016.
