The day before the official presentation of the new Opel Corsa 2019, photos have already been leaked to a French site. The French probably did a good job with their Opel dealer as the images were removed shortly after. But, as happens on the internet, interesting automotive news spreads like wildfire. Even faster.
New Opel Corsa 2019
The official presentation of the new Opel Corsa 2019 is scheduled for early June. All additional information will be available later. What we already know is that, technically, the new Corsa is similar in many ways to the latest Peugeot 208. Both are built on the same platform and use the same engines..
This means that the new Corsa will soon be offered with a 1.2 PureTech three-cylinder petrol engine with 75 or 100 hp. There will also be a fully electric version, which will be called nothing more than Corsa-e. The powertrain is the same as the electric Peugeot e-208, where a 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor is powered by a 50 kWh battery.
Opel Corsa remains one of the company’s most popular models. Since the launch of the first generation in 1983, over 13.5 million units have been sold. It is one of the most important Opel models in Europe, competing with such popular cars as the Volkswagen Polo, Renault Clio and Ford Fiesta. The new Corsa is slightly larger than its predecessor and is only available as a five-door hatchback.
