Opel Confirms 2014 Launch for New Corsa, Gets 115PS 1.0-Liter 3-Cylinder Turbo

Opel has confirmed that the fifth-generation Corsa subcompact will be introduced before the end of this year. The car is currently in the last development stage, with final validation drives taking place to test fine-tuning of all components.

Opel has also said that the Corsa E features a newly developed chassis with two settings (Sport and Comfort) and “superbly” tuned steering, with the new model also getting the new-generation 1.0-liter ECOTEC turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine. Already available on the Adam, the engine produces 114hp (115PS) and is mated to a new six-speed transmission.

According to Opel, board members including CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann have offered a very positive feedback on the new Corsa. “The three-cylinder turbo’s strengths – torque, driveability and noise generation – together with the all-new gearbox and chassis, top the list of highlights according to the Board and engineering team,” reads Opel’s release.

Expect the new Opel Corsa to debut at the Paris Auto Show this autumn.
