The Opel Corsa’s engine portfolio is expanding with a 1.4-litre turbocharged ecoFLEX gasoline engine. Thanks to the fuel saving Start/Stop technology, both the three and five door Corsa variants with the 1.4 turbo ecoFLEX unit only use 5.5 l /100 km with CO2 as low as 129 g/km. The turbocharged engine which is combined with a five-speed manual transmission has a power output of 120 hp and provides maximum torque of 175 Nm starting at 1750rpm. It enables a top speed of 195 km/h and acceleration from standstill to 100 km/h in 10.3 seconds.
Following the enhancements on the engine side, the second generation of Opel engineered manual transmissions will make its debut in the Corsa family in the fall and ensures even more precise and smooth gear shifting. Engineers achieved a reduction of friction and shift forces. The base transmission was comprehensively reworked. New gears and modified parts including for example shift rods and the fork shaft were used. The end result is optimized shift comfort and a general improvement in cold and warm conditions.
The new engine will make its debut together with the new All Black/All White Corsa which is being added to the very popular Color Edition offer. The new All Black /All White variant was created as part of the highly successful Color Edition offer which gives sporty and individual accents to the Corsa family. Customers can choose from the stylish Casablanca White or Carbon Flash exterior colors. The logo bar across the front grille is also colored black or white and elegantly blends in with the rest of the vehicle. Unique painted and polished 17” bicolor wheels to match the All Black / All White body color give the Corsa a contemporary look. The wheels are laid out in a five-spoke design adding a sporty twist to the vehicle.
The cabin is full of unique design accents including white air vent rings for the All White Edition and matt chrome rings for the All Black counterpart. The seat fabric of the Corsa All Black / All White Color Edition has striking seat fabric with silver colored seams as standard. Premium kit such as alloy sport pedals, a multi-function leather steering wheel, dark tinted windows and a chrome effect exhaust tail pipe are all standard. Like all Corsa Color Edition variants, the All Black /All White variants include a sports chassis as standard (in combination with 17” alloy wheels).
