World debut for Agila at Geneva

AGILA, Vauxhall's city car, is to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 2 and go on sale in June. The five-door mini-MPV is being built at General Motors' Polish plant, which has been producing Suzuki's equivalent, the Wagon R+, since 1997.

Vauxhall has insisted Agila is not a Wagon R+ copy and said that the long gap between the Suzuki and the Vauxhall was because of necessary upgrades to the Gliwice factory. Two GM ECOTEC petrol engines will be offered at launch - a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit returning an average fuel consumption of 45mpg, and a 1.2-litre four-cylinder rated at 43.3mpg on the combined cycle.
