Alternatively, Opel KARL ROCKS buyers can choose the optional Easytronic 3.0 gearbox.

The driver can take manual control of Easytronic 3.0 at any time by pulling or pushing the gear selector lever.
Furthermore, the Opel KARL ROCKS also caters for customers looking for an alternative fuel offering and is available with the 1.0 LPG ecoFLEX ex works (NEDC LPG consumption: urban 7.1 l/100 km, extra-urban 5.2 l/100 km, combined 5.9 l/100 km; 95 g/km CO2; NEDC fuel consumption: urban 5.8 l/100 km, extra-urban 4.1 l/100 km, combined 4.7 l/100 km; 108 g/km CO2).
