Opel and Vauxhall are proud to announce the 2015 Corsa has been revealed online and will be shown in public for the first time on October 4th at the Paris Motor Show. The fourth-generation Astra borrows the front fascia from the smaller Adam and as a consequence it comes with a wider front grille flanked by a pair of interestingly shaped headlights. It has also received a powerful shoulder line together with protruding taillights and lower side blades. On the inside there’s a three-spoke steering wheel, metallic accents and a glossy black trim.
We also notice the IntelliLink infotainment system packing a seven-inch touchscreen display, along with optional heated front seats & steering wheel, panoramic sunroof, ambient interior lightning together with Bluetooth and Siri Eyes Free connectivity.
More importantly, the overhauled Corsa adopts a different chassis and its center of gravity has been lowered by 5cm. It comes with new suspension parts (including front knuckle joints) as well new safety assist systems like Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, Automatic Park Assist, Hill Start Assist and Side Blindspot Alert among others.
Under the hood it can get a 3-cylinder, 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with 90 PS or 115 PS and there’s also a 1.4-liter turbo rated at 100 PS and 200 Nm. Opel and Vauxhall will also be offering 1.2 and 1.4-liter naturally-aspirated gasoline engines and a “much improved” 1.3-liter CDTi.
