Opel presented the Karl Rocks, a new small urban crossover, which has features of more expensive and larger SUVs. The official debut of the car is expected at the Paris auto show at the end of the month.
The vehicle’s height is increased by 18 mm, it has silver rails on the roof, plastic bumpers back and front, silver details on the side, 15-inch alloy wheels and a luggage compartment that can reach up to 1,013 liters.
Its interior is updated with new fabrics and it has the Radio R 300 infotainment system on its basic equipment, with the Radio R 400 IntelliLink which is offered as an optional, to support full connectivity with smart phones, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Rocks version features a steering wheel with city mode for a more relaxed drive, parking sensors and cruise control. Opel did not reveal any detils about the engine, but it may be safe to assume that the car uses the same atmospheric 3 cylinder 1-liter engine that produces 75 hp, as the standard version of the Karl. The power will be transferred to the front wheels via a manual 5-speed gearbox.
