However the concepts sliding doors have not been used, instead Vauxhall decided to go with the conventional two door set up. From the front the Junior is instantly recognisable as a Vauxhall, thanks to the daytime running lights inspired by the Astra GTC Concept and the distinctive two bar Vauxhall grille.

Customisation will be plentiful with a raft of colours and trims as well as a choice of hi-tech gadgets including, Smartphone integration, voice control and Sat Nav.
