As we head into the bold new decade, OPEL will be celebrating with the release of a brand-new Corsa, which has received a thorough reimagining in keeping with the model’s reputation for innovation. According to Ulf Spiller, product manager of accessories at OPEL Automobile GmbH, their team did not only do their best to make the best-selling subcompact hatchback sportier, more efficient and more modern, they also went out of their way to make it simple to personalise for every taste.

“Our aim was to make the style accessories portfolio wider than ever before,” stated the passionate product manager. This includes a variety of trim options that can be applied throughout the car's exterior and interior, such as:

  • Bicolour alloy wheels with spoke clips
  • Coloured mirror covers and logo bars
  • Body kit (GS Line)
  • Decal kit (white or black stripes on the hood and roof)
  • Colour garnishing on the instrument panel and dashboard
  • Colour garnishing on the gearshift knob and rear view mirror
  • FlexConnect flexible cup holders

Although the new Corsa was originally intended to live on GM architecture, the engineers relooked their options after the French takeover of the brand. As such, the internal combustion hatch will now make its way into the world on the CMP platform, while it's e-counterpart will share a platform with the Peugeot e-208.

DID YOU KNOW? OPEL was the first European manufacturer to open a design studio. In 1964, OPEL became the first European manufacturer to establish a modern design studio. This allowed them to pool the talents of their designers to arrive at showstopper OPEL GT, OPEL Manta and OPEL Ascona, all of which remained affordable due to their successful use of mass production technology.
