Opel shared the first official shots of test prototypes of the new generation of its compact hatch Corsa. The brand promises to organize the debut of the brand this year, until this point fans of the brand will have to be content with the facts that fall into the Web. European sales of new items should begin in the summer. Recall, at the end of 2018, the manufacturer began road testing of the model. The new Corsa was tested in the north of Sweden in Lapland, where the thermometer sometimes dropped to “minus” 30 degrees.

Interestingly, the machines were tested not only on ordinary roads, but also on special ice tracks on the ice of frozen lakes. All this was done to ensure that developers were able to optimally configure the chassis.

It is known that the next generation Opel Corsa will be based on the CMP modular architecture, thanks to which the car will be about one hundred kilograms lighter than its predecessor. Under the hood of the sixth generation of the hatchback will hide a three-cylinder supercharged engine of 1.2 liters, and in the coming year, Corsa will receive a fully electric version. In the top trim “sixth” Opel Corsa will receive a matrix head optics with LEDs. Recall, these headlights were first shown back in the 2015th on the new generation Opel Astra. Subsequently, they began to equip the flagship model Insignia.
