Our spies have managed to grab on camera the next-gen Opel Agila and its American sibling, the Chevrolet Spark.

Opel will sell the Agila (name not confirmed) in Europe as its entry-level model while Chevrolet will commercialize the Spark in United States. The prototype seen here with red license plates is the Spark while the one with black plates is the Opel. It appears the Spark will have the rear door handles mounted near the C-pillar while the Agila will feature normal handles.

Both models are likely to share the same platform and will allegedly be offered with at least an all-aluminum, 3-cylinder 1.0-liter ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo gasoline engine taken from the Adam where it outputs 90 PS (66 kW) and 115 PS (85 kW). The engine was developed in Germany and in both cases provides a maximum torque of 166 Nm (122 lb-ft) from 1,800 rpm.

The next generation Opel Agila & Chevrolet Spark duo is expected to be introduced sometime next year.
