Suzuki and Vauxhall will show off their Splash and new Agila superminis at this autumn's Frankfurt motor show – although you'll be hard pushed to tell the difference between the two.
The current Suzuki Wagon R+ and Vauxhall Agila are identical cars but Suzuki claims its Splash is not a successor for any specific model. Instead, it's a new concept to satisfy European customers.
Beyond the marketing hype, both superminis will be available with either two petrol engines or a diesel. Petrol power takes the form of a 64bhp 1.0-litre or 85bhp 1.2-litre, while the diesel is a 74bhp 1.3-litre. Both manufacturers say performance figures will be released closer to the car's launch here next spring.
Vauxhall says the Agila will come with four airbags as standard, with the electronic stability control available as an option. Hats off then to Suzuki because the Splash features six airbags and ESP as standard.
