New Opel Corsavan Debuts at the Brussels Motor Show

If you didn’t know, Opel also sells a Corsa for the working man in Europe called Corsavan, and the latest-generation model based on the new B-segment hatchback has just debuted at the Brussels Motor Show.

Based on the three-door Corsa hatchback, the small delivery van looks exactly like the passenger version, with the exception of the rear lateral windows, replaced by body panels. The changes are more significant inside, as the Corsavan ditches the rear seats for increased cargo space.

Maximum payload has increased by 21 kg (46.3 lbs) to 571 kg (1,259 lbs), while cargo volume is 920 liters (32.5 cu-ft). Standard features include a solid steel floor and half-height steel bulkhead, along with half-height sidewall paneling and load restraint lashing eyes. For even more load protection, Opel offers optional upper load restraint mesh, fitted rubber floor mat and four-piece load compartment cover.

The Opel Corsavan is offered with two engine options, a 70PS (69hp) 1.4-liter petrol unit and a 95PS (94hp) 1.3-liter diesel. Opel says the 1.3 CDTI ecoFlex engine has undergone comprehensive redevelopment for use in the new Corsavan.

It delivers 190Nm (140lb-ft) of torque, comes with Start/Stop as standard and is Euro-6 compliant. Combined fuel consumption is rated at just 3.3 l/100 km (71.2 mpg US), with CO2 emissions of 88 g/km. The Corsavan’s main servicing intervals have been set to every two years or 60,000 km (37,282 miles), with an interim service interval of every 30,000 km (18,641 miles) or yearly.

Orders can be placed as of now, with the new Corsavan arriving at dealerships in the first quarter of this year. Opel expects the Corsavan to be especially popular in Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom, markets where the predecessor model also did well.
