The Opel Agila (from Lat. agilis, "agile") is a city car produced under the German marque Opel from 2000 to 2015, as a rebadged variant of the Suzuki Wagon R+ (first generation) and the Suzuki Splash (second generation). It has been marketed under the Vauxhall marque in the United Kingdom.


Its first generation was classified as a city car, whereas the second generation is a mini MPV, and the car was replaced in March 2015 by the Opel Karl (known as the Vauxhall Viva in the UK).

Agila A (2000–2008)

The first-generation Agila was a rebadged version of the Suzuki Wagon R+, which was produced in Japan. The Agila's Opel-sourced 1.0 and 1.2-litre petrol engines were smaller than the 1.3-litre found in the European-market Wagon R+, but were more powerful and refined. The 1.0 engine was the Z10XE engine with three cylinders in line and 973 cc. The 1.2 engine was the Z12XE with four cylinders in line and 1248 cc.

The Agila was built at Opel's factory in Gliwice, Poland. The Suzuki Wagon R+ was built at the Magyar Suzuki plant in Esztergom, Hungary.

Agila B (2008–2014)

The second-generation Agila was officially announced on May 15, 2007, and was presented at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. Suzuki marketed this generation under the Splash nameplate. The car is 200 mm (7.9 in) longer than its predecessor — similar to superminis and mini MPVs such as the Citroën C3 Picasso, Toyota Yaris, Honda Jazz and Nissan Micra.

It is slightly larger in size than the previous generation, and is classified as a mini MPV.

Petrol engines were a three-cylinder 1.0-litre, 65 PS (48 kW; 64 bhp) and a four-cylinder 1.2-litre 86 PS (63 kW; 85 bhp), and the diesel unit a four-cylinder 1.3-litre CDTi 75 PS (55 kW; 74 bhp) with common rail technology. The Agila came in two different trim levels: Base/Essentia and Edition/Enjoy.

European production of the Opel Agila and Suzuki Splash took place at the Magyar Suzuki plant in Esztergom, Hungary. The car was replaced in March 2015 by the Opel Karl (known as the Vauxhall Viva in the UK).


All engines contain the 'Ecotec' technology.
