Compact size and automatic transmission – two factors that can help car drivers relieve the stress of everyday big-city traffic. The Opel Agila now offers both. Only 3.74 meters long, this subcompact can easily take advantage of those spaces between parked cars most vehicles have to pass up. And, thanks to the optional four-speed automatic transmission, city drivers don't have to wear out their leg muscles in stop-and-go traffic.

The Agila Automatic has smooth shifting capability thanks to the hydro-dynamic torque converter – a feature that benefits acceleration as well. Opel offers the automatic transmission in its 1.2 liter engine with 86 hp (63 kW), a comfort option not often seen in its class. The Agila 1.2 liter automatic can reach a top speed of 170 kilometers per hour and consumes just 5.9 liters per 100 kilometers, emitting only 142 grams CO2.
