It is also an excellent choice for an everyday drive in the city, it is easy to maneuver and park. So, if you are in a market for a compact vehicle ideal for city traffic and everyday tasks, then you are at the right place.
The 2018 model year is expected to bring some adjustments considering mainly exterior styling.

Inside the cabin, the Karl Rocks will most likely keep the same design as the outgoing model which means that it will arrive with sufficiently spacious and cozy cabin. In the tech department, the Opel will continue with the same tech as the 2017 model year.

Those will include revised bumpers, skid pads and new silver roof rails. As well, it will ride on 15-inch wheels which will get two colors design and will look more modern and unique.
