Opel Corsa details:

While all engines have been reworked in 2010 to provide more performance with lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, a new 70 Kw/ 95 hp Ecoflex 1. 3 CDTI version now equipped with Start/stop technology further increases the Opel Corsa's overall efficiency: The 3-door version only requires 3. 5 liters diesel per 100 km and emits just 94 g/km CO2. Start/stop technology especially allows a reduction in fuel consumption in urban traffic - at 4. 2 liter/100 km versus 4. 6 l/100 km previously for the Opel Corsa 1. 3 CDTI Ecoflex emitting 98 g/km CO.

A major player in the European sphere since 1982, the Opel Corsa provides one of the widest offering ranges in the small vehicle segment. It comes in two distinct body styles: the coupé-like 3-door, the family friendly 5-door, and a commercial variant named Opel Corsavan. Inside the cab, it continuously seduces with one of the roomiest and most appealing dashboards in its class. The Opel Corsa also provides many high-tech features not provided by its peers - like a heated helm or the integrated bicycle carrier Flexfix - as well as many that are rarely available in the segment like halogen Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL), Hill Start Assist and a panorama sunroof.

The powertrain line-up of the Opel Corsa ranges from 48 Kw/65 hp to 141 Kw/192 hp. This motor family was revised in 2010 with many new engines meeting Euro 5 emission standards that reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 13 percent while increasing motor performance in most applications. To help drivers lower their fuel consumption even while driving a comprehensive vehicle, a 'shift up' indicator light was added to the main instrument screen.
