Scoop: 2014 Opel Corsa Receives a Touch of Adam

Seven years is a very long time for a mainstream car to stay in the market these days, but much like Fiat and its Grande Punto-renamed-Punto, with which the current Corsa shares the same SCCS platform (co-developed by Fiat and General Motors), Opel is taking a financial beating from the Eurozone crisis that is far from over.

Again, just like Fiat with the Punto, Opel’s answer to the ageing Corsa is another facelift, the third in the model’s career after the minor 2010 and 2011 updates.

This one brings the most visible cosmetic revisions to date, with the front end of the Corsa adopting a fascia imitating the looks of the smaller Adam city car. The rear seems unchanged, but then again, this is a prototype, so Opel may have some small tweaks in store for the production model.

A previous set of scoop shots of a Corsa 5-door tester reveals that Opel will enhance the 2014 model’s interior with a freshly designed center console as well.

Minor tweaks are expected under the hood to improve fuel economy and CO2 emission numbers.
