The 2016 Opel Karl / Vauxhall Viva has been spied wearing less disguise than ever before.

Set to go on sale next summer, the entry-level five-door hatchback features a prominent grille, a sporty lower air intake and large headlights. Moving further back, we can see an upward sweeping beltline, a sloping roof and boomerang-shaped taillights.

The companies have been coy on specifications but the model will be based on the next-generation Chevrolet Spark and measure 3.68 meters long. This will make the car just 20mm shorter than the Adam.

Engine options are expected to carryover from the Adam and include a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol that produces 115 PS (85 kW) and 166 Nm (122 lb-ft) of torque
