Opel running final tests of its next-gen Corsa hatchback
Car manufacturer Opel has proceeded to the final test stage of its next-gen Corsa mini-hatchback. According to media, the premiere will likely occur at the 2019 International Motor Show Germany this fall. The series should then reach the market in November, but we will not know the prices until closer to the launch.
The new iteration of the Opel Corsa sports different body dimensions, with the front overhang being 20 mm (0.8”) shorter, the wheelbase 28 mm (1.1”) longer, and the width 48 mm (1.9”) greater than before. Based on a new modular architecture called CMP, the car now spans 4,060 mm (13 1/3 ft.) long and weighs in at around 100 kilos (220 lbs) less.
Options now include LED Matrix headlights and 18-inch wheels.
The series will ship with a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine whose performance will depend on your chosen trim version. An all-electric Corsa is also scheduled for a later release.
