2020 Opel Corsa Shows Its New IntelliLux LED Matrix Headlights

Opel has released the first teaser image of the 2020 Corsa.

Set to be unveiled later this year, the redesigned hatchback will feature stylish new IntelliLux LED matrix headlights. Noticeably sleeker than the current lighting units, the headlights have an evolutionary design with lower LED daytime running lights.

The teaser image also gives us a glimpse of the Corsa’s new bodywork. There isn’t much to see, but the picture suggests the car will adopt streamlined styling with sharper lines.

Opel didn’t say much else about the model, but noted “We celebrate #Opel120 years of automobile production – by continuing to offer high-tech for everyone! The next generation #OpelCorsa not only goes electric, it puts other lights in the shade – with IntelliLux #LED matrix light!”

While Opel is staying coy on details, the Corsa will ride on CMP platform which will underpin an assortment of compact city cars (B segment), sedans (C segment) and compact crossovers from Citroën, DS, Peugeot, Opel and Vauxhall. Besides the Corsa, the platform will also be used on the 2020 Peugeot 208.

The Corsa is expected to be offered with an assortment of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines. Opel has also confirmed plans for an electric variant which could be called the eCorsa. The model will go into production in 2020 and be built in Spain.

When the CMP platform was originally announced, PSA said electric vehicles based on the architecture would come equipped with a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor that develops 134 hp (100 kW / 136 PS).

The 2020 Corsa is expected to be launched late this year, so expect to learn more in the coming months.

    I hope it will be too expensive for most of the people. I’m getting blinded by new cars every day. New BMWs especially are not even trying to be more considerate to others. But I guess it might even be a desired feature for BMW owners. Lack of indicator lights and extremely bright headlights.

      I’m very sensitive to that and I have no issues with those lights.

        So, which new cars have too bright headlights for you? I know that also some audis and mercedes are quite blinding too, but I see them less frequently, that’s why I mentioned bmw, because even from a big distance they have quite distinctive four very bright and very small sources of light.

          From factory? None. There is car with badly aimed headlight, cars with illegals headlights “upgrade” (HID, Chinese LED with finish beam patterns…) and drivers using their high beam fitness no reasons… But I have no issues with properly aimed factory headlight.

          European regulation is very strict on that and actually, LED headlight often emits less light above the cutoff than halogens. Plus they must have self leveling beam, so no issues with people not lowering the beam when going on vacation at full load. (It’s just a nobe to turn peoples! Takes 3 seconds!)

            You obviously don’t even regularly meet these expensive new cars in the dark outside of city. So your opinions mean as much to me as your imaginary “high sensitivity”. I was polite at first, but you just continue to insult me by saying I simply cannot be blinded and you even have the arrogance of giving the same half-truth reasons that manufacturers are using in the marketing materials. I drive at night every other day on a busy highway without any other light sources. And I regularly see other people flashing high beams to let the drivers of some new expensive models that they really are blinding everyone and it’s not because they have high-beams on. It’s because our roads are not the advertisement for adaptive headlights like you are probably imagining.

            Oh sorry, I’m the one insulting you…

            I stand by what I dated and I drive a lot by night in an area with a lot of cars with LED headlights.

    The pictures suggest it will look like the new Peugeot 208.

    The similarities are very large, in larger lines and the shape of the body.
    Even the outer shape, the outer lines, of the headlights.
    Only the technology and the inside of the headlights differ.
    Peugeot has its DRL placed under the headlights, Opel over, but it is here moved to the underside as Peugeot.

    The bonnet oblique line is identical. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/effe03b37f354d4c235f298c097b0e1d2938073fbf5b9b7fd61c1f675f186f7d.jpg
