Opel unveiled no less than three world premieres at Geneva recently, revealing the all-new Karl, ground-breaking in-car technology with Opel OnStar, and the new super-sporty Corsa OPC.
The all-new Karl, a high quality, compact, fun to drive car with space for up to five people made its world debut in Geneva. Offering high-quality driver assistance systems that have only been available in considerably more expensive vehicle classes to date, the 3.68-metre spacious five-door Karl is expected to set a new standard in this segment.
Features offered include; Opel Eye camera system with integrated lane departure warning, power steering with city mode, park, and go technology and automatic cruise control with speed limiter. Arriving in June in Ireland and available to order from April, the Karl is expected to come with a very competitive entry level price and will be available in three trims.
The hot VXR version of Opel’s new Corsa arrived in Geneva, boasting 205PS, 0-60mph in 6.8 seconds, and an optional performance pack to further up the ante.
GM’s acclaimed OnStar connectivity system finally makes the jump from America to Europe, and will be rolled out across the Opel ranges from the second half of this year.
