Measuring 4.06 meters in length, the 2020 Opel Corsa rides on a “multi-energy platform” that “allows various propulsion systems.” In addition to three- and four-cylinder engine options, the Common Modular Platform shared with the DS 3 Crossback is capable of complete electrification.
E-Tense is how the luxury-oriented automaker calls the electric version of the DS 3 Crossback, and up to 320 kilometers (200 miles) can be squeezed out of the 50-kWh battery. Priced at €39,100 in France for the So Chic trim level, the crossover has 136 PS and 260 Nm on offer from a front-mounted electric motor.
“The Opel Corsa has been a trendsetter, bestseller, and favorite of millions ever since its introduction in 1982,” claims the German automaker. On the other hand, it must be highlighted that Opel posted a profit after 20 years of losses under General Motors thanks to the intervention of Groupe PSA.
Being twinned with the Peugeot 208, the Corsa F should receive engine options with at least 1.2 liters of displacement and 75 PS on tap. There are rumors the go-faster OPC will utilize hybridization or go electric, but nothing much is known in this regard for the time being. Over in the United Kingdom, Vauxhall calls the high-performance model the VXR whereas the not-that-hot-but-still-interesting GSi uses a 1.4-liter turbo with 150 PS.
