Low emissions and an affordable price tag mean that Vauxhall’s new Agila is set to be hot in the city when it arrives in showrooms in April 2008.
The compact but flexible Vauxhall newcomer benefits from tax-busting CO2 figures of just 120g/km on both the entry-level petrol and diesel engines, meaning it will fall into VED Band B – the cost of a tax disc being just ₤35 a year!
Adding to its affordability, Agila will cost from only ₤7,595 when it arrives. Three trim levels will be on offer, all with impressive levels of standard equipment, plus the added advantage of the car’s incredibly versatile interior layout.
Small enough to be manoeuvrable into tight parking spaces, but with 5 doors and 5 full-size seats with 3-point belts as standard, Agila benefits from enough luggage space to rival cars in the class above. For those occasions when owners need to carry furniture rather than friends, the rear seat backs can be folded down to create a completely flat load floor on all but the entry-level model. In total the new Vauxhall Agila has a luggage capacity of 1050 litres – among the best in this sector.
It has a tall roofline which provides an airy, spacious feel. This allows a high seating position, making it easy to get in and out of and ensures good visibility even in heavy urban traffic.
To complement the dynamic looks and all-new chassis, the Agila will offer 3 new engines and an automatic gearbox will be available for the first time. Petrol units include a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder unit developing 65PS and a 85PS 1.2, the latter of which will be available with optional automatic transmission. Vauxhall’s award-winning 1.3 CDTi diesel will also be on offer, delivering excellent performance from its 75PS while sipping fuel.
