The subcompact model is utterly important to Opel’s revival strategy, being the brand’s bestseller. So, no detail has been left to chance – and German customers have been treated to the three and five-door model’s configurator.
The move to allow German buyers to configure their brand new Corsa comes well ahead of the upcoming Paris Motor Show, with the brand listing on the website all the trim levels and engines.
As expected, the three-door Corsa is the cheapest on the lot, with prices starting at 11,980 euros, putting it just 230 euros ahead of the fashionable Adam model. On the other hand, for that price, buyers get a “Selection” trim level and a 1.2-liter with 70 hp and a 5-speed manual – all good for a 0-100 km/h sprint of 16 seconds. The prices are aligned to the competition, with the 2014 VW Polo going for 12,600 euros in Germany.
The Corsa is also offered with a technologically advanced 1-liter turbo engine, good for 90 hp or 115 hp in the case of the five-door model. The three-door is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and goes for at least 14,480 euros. There are two additional options when it comes to transmission choices: an automated manual and a six-speed auto, both only featured together with a 1.4-liter engine.
Diesels start at 14,930 euros, with German buyers getting for that price the well-known 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX with 75 hp.
