World Premiers by North American Manufacturers



Opel/Vauxhall announces two world premiers – Agila and Speedster

The Opel Speedster/Vauxhall VX220 is an exciting product that captured the imagination of enthusiast drivers and quickly moved from concept to reality. First seen at the Geneva show last year, this eye-catching, limited edition, especially dynamic sports car – developed in conjunction with Lotus Engineering – makes its world premier as a production model exactly one year later.

Debuting at the Geneva show, the all-new Opel/Vauxhall Agila represents the maximum use of the microvan format and is the first microvan produced by a European manufacturer. Based on a joint development with Suzuki, the Agila will be introduced step by step in the European countries, starting in May 2000.

The latest Ford Galaxy is also one of the first vehicles in Europe to offer an advanced multi-media system as an original-equipment option. The system provides video playback and the facility for computer games on two daylight-visible, high-resolution screens on the backs of the front seat headrests. The new Ford Galaxy goes on sale in Europe later in 2000.

World Debut for All-New 2001 CHRYSLER SEBRING

A stylish, all-new Chrysler mid-size sedan makes its world premiere at the Geneva motor show. The new 2001 Chrysler Sebring throws down a significant challenge to look-alike mainstream models in the segment.

With the introduction of the new Sebring, Chrysler not only strengthens its European challenge but also continues its total product renewal cycle, which has given the brand a completely redesigned passenger car line-up that is less than three years old.

The Sebring, which will go on sale in European markets late this year, builds on the success of its predecessor, the Chrysler Stratus, but delivers added luxury features, extra refinement and increased performance from a choice of 2.7-litre V-6 and 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines, with the option of AutoStick® transmission. The outstanding dynamic and passive safety abilities of Sebring are enhanced by the option of ABS Plus, a sophisticated software extension of conventional anti-lock braking.
