Vauxhall / Opel Agila

Opel Agila

GM Europe's smallest car, Agila, is really a Suzuki Wagon-R with fresh badging and some subtle tweaks to Europeanise the inside trim.

Offered with whether three cylinder, one litre engine or perhaps a 1200cc four, the tiny car reaches home in the city, where it proves in a position to cut it in high-traffic, but long journeys require a sound constitution; the vehicle is suffering from crosswinds on exposed highways, and may make the occupants feel vulnerable.

Tiny overall dimensions make it well suited for parking in close confines, but despite its insufficient bulk feels quite spacious inside, because of a high roofline providing you with lots of headroom.

It's been a neat method for Vauxhall and Opel to place a toe to the water, so far as city cars are worried - and they have found the water quite warm. It's rumoured that the European-designed model has been prepared for replacement of the Agila in 2006.
