Opel Trixx

The Opel Trixx at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show

The Opel Trixx (also known as the Opel TRIXX) was a concept car created by Opel. It was a brief set out by CEO at the time Carl Peter Forster to designers at Opel and Saab Design studios. Create the best possible car within 3 m length. Designed at Saab Design in Sweden and built at Caggiola in Italy, Trixx influenced future Small Car Designs for the Opel Brand, e.g. the 2007 Opel Agila.

It was first introduced at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. This city car concept was designed from the traveler's point of view because of the many devices built into it.

The Trixx used a 1.3 L diesel engine with common rail direct injection. This also gave the Trixx a top speed of 70 mph (112.6 km/h). The rest of its engine power has not been tested.

The design of the Trixx was very compact. Unlike most city cars that seat 2, the Trixx seats 3 adults. Although the Trixx was small, it could store things as large as bicycles. The Trixx featured an inflatable rear seat, 4 power sliding doors, and a roof hatch that can be opened by the push of a button. The hatch could be used to store long items.
