Opel has unveiled a new Corsa which promises to be more modern, more digital and more diverse than ever.

Updated styling includes the characteristic Opel Vizor brand fascia upfront and the confidently placed nameplate at the rear.

The black visor covers the front of the Corsa and seamlessly integrates into the grille, LED headlights and the central Opel Blitz in one element. Optical air inlets located in the lower front bumper area are larger and more prominent than before, giving the Corsa an even more planted look. The adaptive, glare free Intelli-Lux LED Matrix Lights, which the Corsa brought to the small car segment in 2019, have been further developed and now comprise 14 LED elements.

The side look impresses with characteristic lines while the breakthrough C-pillar allows the roof, which is finished in black, to float above the vehicle.

Inside story

The interior is modern and features new seat patterns as well as a new shift lever and steering wheel which all contribute to a feel-good atmosphere.

State of the art technologies are now available including the optional digital cockpit which features a new intuitive infotainment system with colour touchscreens up to 10 inches in size. The integrated Snapdragon Cockpit Platform from Qualcomm Technologies features enhanced graphics, multimedia, computer vision and artificial intelligence capabilities to provide a more integrated, contextually aware, and constantly adaptive cockpit system that can evolve to meet its passengers’ preferences. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible smartphones can now be connected to the vehicle’s multimedia systems wirelessly.

Wide range of powerplants available

The new Corsa range will feature a variety of electric and internal combustion powertrain options. The Corsa Electric is now available with a more powerful motor as well as a new battery that enables a driving range of up to 405 kilometres on the WLTP cycle.

The range will be completed by highly efficient combustion engines including a 55kW 1.2 litre petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission, a 75kW 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with six-speed manual transmission, a 97kW 1.2-litre petrol engine paired to either a six or eight-speed transmission and the 82kW 1.5 diesel engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission. With power units ranging from all-electric to hybrid and highly efficient combustion engines, the new Corsa offers customers an unrivalled choice of drivetrains.

The latest in driver assistance

All models feature numerous technologies and driver assistance systems as standard equipment including forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane keep assist and drowsiness alert. Additional electronic helpers make driving and manoeuvring safer and more relaxing and includes flank guard and the new high-resolution panoramic view camera.
