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.
Exterior - Broad shoulders and dynamic lines
With its masculine and self-confident bodywork form, the new Corsa gives a very grown-up optical impression. All in all, the dynamically shaped design unquestionably shows its affiliation to the Opel family. The distinctive Irmscher front-spoiler lip seamlessly takes in the line of the front bumper and effectively highlights the sporty view of the Corsa front.
Irmscher also relies on sport when it comes to the vehicle’s side look: the side sillboards optically reduce the ground clearance, giving the Corsa’s sides a more powerful effect in combination with door handle and front and rear-spoiler. The Irmscher rear-spoiler lengthens the C-column, at the same time framing the rear window. In addition to the accentuation of the side lines, the dragged-down side cheeks of the rear spoiler are important for the aerodynamic optimisation of the vehicle’s rear and protect at the same time against side sunlight.
Interior - Sporty ambience
The red/black leather seating from the Irmscher individualisation programme makes a good impression in the vehicle interior. The handbrake lever hold in aluminium-look and the aluminium sport pedals underline the sporty character of the interior. Irmscher offers matching stainless-steel entrance lining. A centre armrest and a protective leather cover for the gear- and handbrake-lever are also available colour-coordinated to the leather interior.
Engineering - Perfect styling with additional drivability
A beautiful back can also be delightful. The rear silencer with elliptically shaped double tail-pipe is not only an impressive eye-catcher, but also remarkable in a functional respect. Thanks to the stainless steel it is extremely durable, provides a rich sound, minimises dynamic pressure and consequently increases performance.
Stable road holding and a high degree of track reliability are guaranteed in any situation with the sporty designed spring rate of the lowering springs by 30 mm and the 16-inch light alloy wheels in Stila design resp. 17-inch light alloy wheels in Delta or Sportstar design. Thanks to this extra programme for even more drivability, control of the Corsa leaves nothing to be desired, even for drivers with sporting ambitions.
