    Opel Karl Toughens Up With New Rocks Mini Crossover Variant

    Opel Karl Toughens Up With New Rocks Mini Crossover Variant
    MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2016

    With just a little over two weeks left until the 2016 Paris Auto Show opens its gates, Opel has just released the first images of one of its premieres, the Karl Rocks.

    An 18-mm (0.7 in) increased ride height, rugged bumpers on both ends with integrated skid pads, front and rear wheelhouse moldings, functional silver roof rails and unique 15-inch wheels with a bi-color look set it apart from the standard entry-level model.

    Its off-road character is continued inside, where the Germans are offering 'Favo' fabric upholstery for the seats, which is available exclusively on the Karl Rocks. This is joined by the front sill plates, high-gloss frame for the standard Radio R 300 or optional Radio R 4.0 IntelliLink, which adds Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and Opel OnStar personal connectivity and service assistant.

    Just like Bolt/Ampera-e and Cadillacs - only available in LHD so potential UK sales ignored - GM is so predictable now

    In your dreams - until Sweden switched from RHD to LHD in 1967, the subject used to come up occasionally in the UK but having seen someone else go through that it's never been discussed since - not even during the time when cars could be grey-imported from LHD Europe at big cost savings.

    GM NA is the ONLY car maker that has any issue with simply doing LHD & RHD at the CAD design stage.

    We joined a Common Market - it has evolved against our wishes into a political union which we want no part of - interestingly, several other countries have serious doubts about remaining in the EU and are waiting to see how the UK gets on during Brexit and afterwards.

    Moreover, Vauxhall is now expected to lift the veils off a similar version of the Viva too, aimed at the UK market
