The next-generation compact hatchback Opel Corsa will be about 100 kilograms lighter than its predecessor and will get matrix headlights

Opel has published the first official photos of the test prototypes of the next-generation compact Corsa hatchback. The premiere of the novelty will be held in 2019.

Since the end of last year, cars are being tested in the north of Sweden in Lapland, where the temperature dropped to minus 30 degrees Celsius. Cars were driven around both on public roads and on special ice tracks on the ice of frozen lakes. The developers noted that they set the task of setting up the chassis in such a way as to “achieve the optimal balance between safety, comfort and pleasure from control.”

The next Opel Corsa will be built on the CMP (Common Modular Platform) modular architecture, which will form the basis of a number of cars of the PSA alliance. The new chassis will make the car about 100 kg lighter than its predecessor. The engine range will include a 1.2-liter three-cylinder supercharged engine, which will be available in several stages of boost. In 2020, the model will have a fully electric modification.

The top versions of the Opel Corsa will be equipped with LED matrix headlamps, which debuted in 2015 on the Astra of a new generation, and then appeared on the flagship Insignia model.
