2015 Opel Karl is company’s new entry-level model

Article by Christian A., on September 11, 2014

Yesterday we revealed you the fact that Vauxhall is planning a new vehicle called Viva, which will roll out next summer. What’s more interesting is that its sister model from Opel will not carry the same name, in fact it will be called Karl. That’s right folks, the 2015 Opel Karl was officially hit the dealerships next summer.

If the Viva brought an iconic name back, the Karl pays homage to one of Adam Opel’s sons. Opel Adam turned Opel into the largest bicycle manufacturer while his sons Carl, Wilhelm and Friedrich started the automobile adventure in 1898.

The new Opel Karl will not be a large vehicle as it will have a length of 3.68 meters, while the Adam is 3.70 m long and the Corsa E measures about 4 meters.

Offered in a five-door version, the Karl will be a new entry-level model in Opel’s lineup, offering up to five seats. “Karl is a short, snappy and catchy name that represents Opel brand values: German, emotional and approachable,” said Tina Müller, Chief Marketing Officer at Opel. We will probably see the new vehicle in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show!
