- New 60 hp 1.0 litre engine with twinport technology
- Style changes freshen exterior looks
The new edition of the Vauxhall Agila is now available to order, featuring revised front and rear styling, a bright interior, and a 60 hp 1.0 litre engine that features the innovative twinport technology.
The new edition of the Agila is identifiable from the outside by its larger front "V" grille wider colour-keyed front and rear bumpers.
The new three-cylinder engine with fuel-saving twinport technology, which dramatically increases engine efficiency returns 48.7 mpg, up nearly two mpg over the previous 57 hp model, yet it delivers more torque and higher performance.
Both the twinport and existing 75 hp 1.2 litre ECOTEC engine comply with Euro 4 emission standards, which do not become mandatory for all newly-registered cars until 2006.
The Agila model range has three trim levels, Expression, Enjoy and Design with a variant to suit every customer.
Agila Expression is for the cost-conscious customer, Enjoy for those who prefer interior and exterior colour co-ordination, and Design for those who place a high value on elegant understatement.
A combination of funky exterior colours, numerous options, and accessories offers Agila customers an array of choices when customising their cars.
Safety equipment has improved further in the new edition Agila. Along with optional side airbags for driver and front-passenger, the Pedal Release System (PRS), ensures greater safety. Two rear head restraints (except in Expression) electronically adjustable exterior mirrors and tinted glass are also standard.
The ingeniously simple seating-concept which puts Agila ahead of its competition, remains unchanged. The 60:40-split rear seat-backs simply fold down onto the seat cushion, which then sinks forward to create flat load surface in a matter of seconds.Published 5 August 2003
