The new Opel Corsa is expected in Europe as it is the first traditional German-branded model to be PSA, with the CMP modular platform, as well as the DS 3 Crossback and the Peugeot 208 trend of some brands, the company has released an official photo of hatch in masked tests.
Tests that were made in northern Sweden set the new Opel Corsa at -30 ° C to test its ability to withstand extreme temperatures, which is common in some parts of Europe. Obviously, the German hatch is also rated at very high levels of heat, something more common in the south of the old continent, when thermometers reach markings above 45 ° C. The tests also include roads, waterways and laboratories.
The new Opel Corsa presents very little, revealing LED headlights with dual LED daytime running lights that form the "L", the current brand feature. With its size appearing above 4m, the four-door hatch will obviously have the body very close to the New 208 in its basic forms, as seen on the forums on the Internet.
The design of the new Opel Corsa will be 108 kg lighter than approximately 980 kg. The body will have more high-strength steels as well as lighter aluminum propellers and plastic foils to reduce weight. Several parts and components had their weight reduced, such as the front and rear seats, which lost a total of 10 kg.
The new Opel Corsa will also have a performance package focused on a three-cylinder Puretech 1.2 engine, which should have an access capacity of 82 hp in the access version, as well as 110 and 130 horsepower options with a turbocharger. Also, the OPC version should focus on Puretech Turbo 1.6 with over 200 horses.
One can expect the BlueHDi 1.5 diesel engine and the 100% electric option, with 136 hp lithium batteries and 50 kWh, providing approximately 350 km of autonomy.
