It is said that the Buick version of the car will have a four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbocharged engine able to pump out 160 bhp, but this is an engine we have never heard of. We surely expect it so show up, but the engine that is more likely to be under the hood of this new crossover will be the turbocharged 1.4-litre engine that will recharge the batteries of Volt and power the upcoming Chevrolet Cruze.
In Brazil, Agile is expected to use a 105 bhp 1.4-litre flex fuel engine and a 129 bhp 1.8-litre flex fuel engine. What is to be confirmed or not is not far for us to discover. Agile must be well prepared, once it is going to face two strong contenders, the new VW Polo (fifth generation) and the new Ford Fiesta. Not to mention any possible competitor Fiat may give Chrysler should this market segment prove to be attrating North American buyers. Besides the crossover based on GPix, there will also come to life a small minivan, a sedan and a pick-up truck. It is possible some of them will also reach the USA market.
