Vauxhall revealed its crossover styled variant of the budget city car, Viva Rocks at 2016 Paris Motor Show. The company also unveiled Mokka X and Zafira Tourer, both of which hits the streets next month. Viva Rocks was revealed on the Opel stand at the show.
The new city car features a raised ride height with rugged body cladding, a robust new interior and the latest connectivity including OnStar and R 4.0 Intellilink. The car has five doors, five seats, compact dimensions and 1,000 litres luggage capacity.
When it comes to design, the Rocks has silver roof rails, rugged front and rear bumper with integrated skid pads and 15-inch bi-colour look alloy wheels. It's also equipped a ‘City' driving mode which reduces steering effort in heavy traffic, cruise control is standard and additional feature include Park Assist.
Even though they unveiled Viva Rocks, the company is more focused on the new Ampera-e electric car, which is also premiered in Paris. This electric car will be sold by Vauxhall's sister company Opel. The electric car is claimed to have a pure electrical range of 498 kilometres without needing a recharge.
Vauxhall chairman Rory Harvey says, "Vauxhall is committed to having a future EV presence in its range. The technology which underpins the new Ampera-e is of great interest to us, and we will be evaluating LHD cars from next spring and demonstrating them to clients.
"The fact that Ampera-e is not an eco-luxury or second car for customers broadens its appeal greatly, but it's obviously vital that the car we sell in our market is right-hand-drive, and that won't be available in the current generation."
