New Opel Corsa in Middle East & Africa: Bolder, Purer, More Diverse

The new Opel Corsa is arriving – more modern, more digital and more diverse than ever. The best-selling small car, which recently celebrated its world premiere at the 2023 IAA Mobility in Munich, impresses with its new styling including the characteristic Opel Vizor brand fascia at the front and the confidently placed nameplate at the rear.

The Opel Corsa will start arriving across Middle East & Africa starting from October 2023.

State-of-the-art technologies make the drive more relaxed. The optional fully digital cockpit – based on the Snapdragon Cockpit Platform from Qualcomm Technologies – features a new intuitive infotainment system with colour touchscreens up to 10 inches in size. The adaptive, glare-free Intelli-Lux LED Matrix Light, which the Corsa brought to the small car segment in 2019, has been further developed and now comprises 14 LED elements. 

“High tech” can also be found under the hood. The Corsa Electric is now available with a more powerful motor as well as a new battery that enables a driving range of up to 405 kilometres in the WLTP cycle. In addition, the new Corsa will soon become the first Opel with a 48-volt hybrid system. 

The range will be completed with the highly efficient combustion engines: 75 HP 1.2 gasoline engine with manual 5-speed transmission, 100 HP 1.2 Turbo gasoline engine with manual 6-speed transmission, 130 HP 1.2 Turbo gasoline engine with automatic 6 or 8-speed transmission and the 110 HP 1.5 Diesel engine with manual 6-speed transmission. With power units ranging from all-electric to hybrid and highly efficient combustion engines, the new Corsa therefore offers customers an unrivalled choice of drivetrains. 

Everything on board: New Corsa and Corsa Electric are extensively equipped

Every new Corsa already has numerous technologies and driver assistance systems as standard equipment. The list includes forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection; lane-keep assist; and drowsiness alert. Additional electronic “helpers” make driving and manoeuvring safer and more relaxing. The offer extends to flank guard and the new, high-resolution panorama rear view camera. The design of the new Corsa is also more modern and more stylish, with the unmistakable Opel Vizor at the front and the nameplate located proudly in the centre of the tailgate. 

Customers who prefer to drive electrically and locally emissions-free can choose from two all-electric drivetrains: a new option with 115 kW/156 hp and up to 405 kilometres range as well as the proven variant with 100 kW/136 hp and a further improved range of up to 357 kilometres (WLTP2); and with 260 Newton metres of maximum torque available from a standstill, both versions of the Corsa Electric deliver high driving enjoyment. 

In addition to the Corsa’s usual standard equipment, the electric versions feature a digital driver information centre, the Multimedia Radio (compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) with colour touchscreen, automatic climate control, a 7.4 kW onboard charger, regenerative braking, a heat pump and 16-inch “Diamond Cut” light alloy wheels. 

Thanks to numerous new features, the Corsa also creates a modern feel-good atmosphere in the interior. The highlight is the optional fully digital cockpit with new infotainment (subject to model variant) including the integrated Snapdragon Cockpit Platform from Qualcomm Technologies. For the first time, wireless smartphones compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be connected via the Multimedia system and charged wirelessly.
