Together with the cosmetically updated versions of the regular three- and five-door body styles of the Opel and Vauxhall Corsa range, GM’s German division is also applying the makeover on the performance model of the series with the OPC and VXR nametag in mainland Europe and the UK respectively.
Just like on the tamer versions of the Corsa lineup that we’ve seen testing in Europe over the past few months, the exterior styling alterations on the OPC are concentrated on the front end that adopts a new face highlighted by the bigger grille, similar if not identical, to that of the Adam mini.
In addition, the OPC will also benefit from a host of interior revisions, including new trims, a redesigned center console and a revised instrument panel.
We don’t expect any radical changes under the hood, with the Corsa OPC to retain the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that currently produces 189-horsepower (192PS) in base trim and 207hp (210PS) on the more hardcore OPC Nürburgring Edition.
