Vauxhall released teaser shots of its new Viva city car on Wednesday, September 10. That name was last seen in Britain in 1979 on the rump of the HC – although Russian Chevrolets used the name in 2004.

Vauxhall’s Viva makes its entrance next year as a replacement for the current Agila. Details remain sketchy, but the boxy newcomer will be offered in four- and five-seat versions, and is rumoured to use engines from the Adam boutique supermini.
