Opel talked about gasoline engines for the new Corsa 2020 model year

June 26, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The press service of the German brand told about the engine range for the updated hatchback Opel Corsa. Earlier, the automaker showed a completely electric version of this car – this car was named Corsa-e.

To show how rapidly the automotive industry is changing, Opel decided to introduce the Corsa 2020 model year first in the electric version. It was about a month ago, and only now the brand based in Rüsselsheim shares images and details regarding the traditional versions of its popular car.

Not surprisingly, the design of the versions with internal combustion engines is almost the same as we saw in May, when the Corsa-e was introduced, so we will focus only on changes in the engine range.


Even in spite of the fact that the subcompact hatchback is ready for the future, having received a purely electrical installation, you will still be able to buy the version with the old 1.2-liter engine with a power of 75 horsepower.

  The engine without forced induction will be the base for the new Corsa, and it will work only with 5-speed manual gearbox. If you need more power, a turbocharged engine with the same working volume will be offered in two versions: 100 hp (205 Nm) and 130 hp and (230 Nm). The first of them works with a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission. Well, the 130-hp version of this engine is aggregated only with automatic transmission. For such a performance of the new Corsa, acceleration to 100 km/h will take 8.7 seconds, and the maximum speed will be equal to 188 km/h. The updated Corsa will also be available with an economical 1.5-liter turbo diesel with a capacity of 102 hp (250 Nm).

In its lightest form, the novelty will weigh only 980 kg, not counting the driver. The length of the car is 4.06 meters – about the same as its predecessor. And the roofline was reduced by 48 mm, without adversely affecting the comfort of the driver and front passenger.
