These are really impressive figures. There has been four generations Corsa (Fig. 6) in 32 years, what includes the sale of approximately 12 million vehicles. Accordingly, the New is called 'Corsa E'.
Of course, the question arises whether this is now the extension of the a bit more cheeky Adam design. Probably not. Only from the side, you can assign to both vehicles the lowest bead. No, the developers have re-designed, even risked more design at the engine bonnet and of course at the headlights.
Pleases the Corsa better because you get used to the Adam and its many colour combinations, or is the design of the Corsa more grownup development? Whereby, one could always quite good rear end at Opel's compact cars. But the probably now higher front for pedestrian protection could also become something.
Now, the Corsa is also the favorite of many people. With this new interior with middle-class flair it yet suits to more people, the want to achieve with a car few psychological effects and to protect their wallets. Four metres in length seem just right, if you do not have to transport several children.
Very important additionally to the old engines could be the new three-cylinder direct-injection engine. However, an extended test drive is not a luxury. Such an engine should not get on your nerves. Also the transmission shall be not only lighter in weight, but also the work when changing gears. However, the suspension is supposed to have more stability, although the operating principle has not changed.
So three cylinders with only one liter displacement, 66 kW (90 hp) or 85 kW (115 hp), combined with six gears and then, you only live once, an option in damping between sport and comfort, on the test drive it's necessary to detect whether the difference is really noticeable. Then one can just be curious about the price, because some money must still be left over for Intellilink. 07/14
