Vauxhall is to showcase the all-new Viva at the Geneva Motor Show, in March.
Arriving in summer, the Viva will be the latest addition to Vauxhall’s small car range, joining the Adam and the Corsa supermini.
With a name that pays homage to Vauxhall’s original Viva made from 1963 to 1979, the all-new model shares the original’s philosophy of clean lines, durability and practicality.
The new Viva is the latest Vauxhall to feature a new 1.0-litre 74bhp three-cylinder Ecotec engine, which is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
It also includes the IntelliLink infotainment system, which allows integration of Apple iOS and Android devices.
Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director Tim Tozer said: “Debuting at Geneva, Vauxhall’s new entry-level model is a ‘proper’ small car and will hold great appeal in this rapidly growing sector.
“On sale next year at an extremely attractive price point, VIVA joins new Corsa and Adam in a compelling small car portfolio, giving Vauxhall an unrivalled position in the small car market.”
