After Vauxhall announced the introduction of the small Viva model in a teaser picture, it was Opel`s moment to tease us with the upcoming of its newest city car model Karl, in a teaser video as well.

The Opel Karl city car will be the descendent of the Adam model, replacing thus the already successful Agila model, which was primarily built in the long-term partnership with Suzuki.

Tina Muller, Chief Marketing Officer at Opel, stated that the Karl city car is actually a “short, snappy and catchy name”, representing the German carmaker`s values.

The details with the upcoming Opel Karl are rather limited for the moment, as both the Karl and the Viva model from Vauxhall will be only launched next year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

However, rumors state that the Opel Karl will be standing on the SCCS Adam`s platform and would sport a 1.2-liter as well a 1.4-liter petrol unit, while the possibility of a new 1.0-liter turbo might also be an option.
