Compared with the near-identical Suzuki Splash, the Agila is pricey. However, day-to-day running costs will be low, and the car has the reassurance of a lifetime (limited to 100,000 miles) warranty, but resale values are nothing special.
Vauxhall Agila Hatchback quality & reliability
Vauxhall has tried hard to smarten up the interior with a textured finish on the dash top and a few bright highlights on the switches and controls. Mostly, the Agila disguises that it is a budget car in all but price. It is built by Suzuki, so mechanical reliability is pretty much guaranteed.
Vauxhall Agila Hatchback safety & security
Where Suzuki provides six airbags and stability control as standard on the Splash, Vauxhall fits only four and asks £400 for stability control. Considering the Agila's pricing, this is disappointing. Remote locking with deadlocks is fitted to all but the base Expression version.
