2019 Opel Corsa is a supermini engine designed and manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Opel. Vauxhall has officially released images of its new Corsa-e supermini, which will be sold early next year. Official images of the everyday Vauxhall Corsa were released before the release of the car in 2020 after a large-scale leak occurred earlier in the week. The brand’s latest supermini, shown here in the electric Corsa e-exhibition, will reach the UK market in the summer of 2020 with the choice of both fossil fuel and EV power.
The new 2019 Opel Corsa model replaces the old-fashioned styling with lower and larger paneling. Its interior gets a makeover in the style of Vauxhall’s new PSA group owners with brand new infotainment consisting of a 10-inch touchscreen display, fresh switch, and digital instrument cluster option. The Vauxhall supermini moves on the CMP platform of the PSA group, with the all-electric Corsa-e using the e-CMP variant of the new compact car platform.
2019 Opel Corsa Features
Final specifications will be announced, but the Corsa-e will have new driver assistance technology. Lane Assistance will be presented on the Corsa for the first time, along with the road sign recognition, blind spot assistance, and adaptive speed control. Safety technology and assistance features include automatic emergency braking, automatic parking assist, and a rearview camera.
While Vauxhall unveiled the Corsa e, we still didn’t see a regular combustion-powered variant of the new Corsa. A revelation for the regular arrangement will take place in the coming weeks. In spite of this, the first deliveries for the Corsa e series will take place in April 2020, a few months after arriving at the car’s combustion engine.
2019 Opel Corsa Design
The new Vauxhall Corsa body will be made up of a range of high-strength steel, combined in the most weight-conscious manner, saving a total of 40kg over the outgoing model. A new aluminum hood will also replace the previous Corsa’s steel unit and save a further 2.4kg. Despite the weight loss, the upcoming Corsa will be slightly larger than its predecessor, with its larger body and longer wheelbase that unlocks more interior and boot space. It seems the newcomer will be sold strictly as a five-door model.
2019 Opel Corsa Engine
Underneath the bonnet, every new 1.0-cylinder ECOTEC engine – the direct-injection turbo 90 or 115 PS will provide 170Nm of torque – with a six-speed manual transmission, while a new six-speed engine is optionally selected on engines. Start / Stop technology is standard and in the three-section, the lower powered model can hit sub-100g / km.
The entry-level engine is a 70 PS 1.2 liter petrol, while turbo and non-turbo 1.4s offer 100 PS and 90 PS respectively. The 1.3 CDTI will continue with 75PS, which now saves as little as 85g / km CO2 and is capable of reaching 3.2l / 100km. An EcoFLEX version was also available from the launch with the target CO2 emissions of less than 85g / km.
2019 Opel Corsa Safety
Despite a wide range of safety kits, the Vauxhall Corsa scored only four out of five stars in its Euro NCAP test. The organization awarded the Corsa 79% for adult occupant protection and 77% for child protection. It’s somehow behind the 87% and 84% that the Ford Fiesta achieved. The Corsa features safety equipment such as blind spot warning, headlights, six airbags, lane departure warning, and a rearview camera. Automatic emergency braking, which reduces the probability and severity of a shunt, is fitted as standard.
