Opel has shifted into top gear with the new Corsa. Following the successful market launch of the bestseller’s fourth generation, Opel now sends the sporty top version on to the road. The OPC model is the quintessential expression of the Corsa’s dynamic character, with top-level agility and vehicle control promising pure driving fun.
Following the Corsavan Concept study’s successful premiere at the recent Paris Motor Show, the production version of the compact city van will make its debut early next year at the Brussels Motor Show (January 13 – 21, 2007). Based on the new three-door Corsa, the nippy city delivery van can be ordered now. The newcomer, which combines the comfort and performance of a passenger car with the transport capacity of a van, will be available at dealerships as of April 2007.
The Corsa is a supermini introduced by General Motors’ European subsidiary Opel in 1983 and produced until today. It has also been sold under a variety of other brands (most notably Vauxhall , Chevrolet and Holden) and names and spawned various derivatives in different markets, all of which are listed in appropriate sections below.Despite its global presence, it has never been sold in the United States or Canada.
Opel presented the new Corsa in London. The most conspicuous optical feature of the new three-door Corsa is its sporty coupÃ© form. The five-door also cuts a good figure with its short rear overhangs. The family resemblance of both variations to the Astra is obvious. On the occasion of the new Corsa edition going on sale, Irmscher - the specialist when it comes to upgrading and individualisation of Opel vehicles - is offering an extensive sporty accessories programme for the three- and five-door versions.
