Vauxhall targets Dacia Sandero with new budget city car

Next-gen Chevrolet Spark set to spawn a new budget Vauxhall, could arrive next year and cost as little as £6k

Vauxhall is planning an assault on the Dacia Sandero with a new budget city car based 
on the next-generation Chevrolet Spark.

Vauxhall plans to take on the Dacia Sandero with a new budget city car. The model, which will be based on the next-generation Chevrolet Spark, will form part of a three-strong line-up of Vauxhall models smaller than the Corsa. The other two cars in that range will be a replacement for the Agila, due in 2016, and the Adam.

Officials from Vauxhall and GM sister firm Opel have previously hinted at plans to launch a simple city car, but details have been scarce. It is understood that the model could be launched as soon as next year. With Dacia clearly in Vauxhall’s sights, 
a starting price close to that 
of the £5995 Sandero can’t 
be ruled out.
