Legendary OPEL Corsa reinvented for 2024

The all-new OPEL Corsa is more modern, more digital, and more diverse than ever. Forever forward since 1899, OPEL has penned a fresh new precision-designed look and developed engineering to put the fun back into driving.

The future-ready German city car blends everyday driving fun with big car technology. It’s one of the reasons the OPEL Corsa revolutionised the small car segment when it was launched in 1982 and today, now in its sixth generation, it is more in demand than ever. The current OPEL Corsa is amongst the most popular small cars in Germany and has been the best-selling car in the UK. And it has a staunch South African following, including the legendary Lite name in the range.

The OPEL Corsa has been a bestseller for more than 40 years. This success is testament to the brand’s work whilst providing additional motivation to do even better going forward. With a stunning design and state-of-the-art technologies from higher segments to inspire customers and show them what they can expect from a small car today.

Bolder, more emotional, and more intuitive to operate, the new Corsa takes OPEL’s offer in the small car segment to the next level. A vehicle aimed at the aspirational youth and those young at heart, who have a zest for life.

The new Corsa is available in three trim levels. The legendary Lite starts the range with an already impressive specification list. Edition models add specification while retaining similar performance, while the new GS Line has boosted performance and the ultimate features.

Opel Vizor

The new Corsa now boasts OPEL’s distinctive Vizor front end – a single smooth panel that sits between the LED headlights, housing the advanced OPEL driver aids and safety technologies, with the logo at the centre.

Other styling updates include 16-inch black alloy wheels for Lite and Edition models, as well as black roof, black badging and black Corsa lettering on GS Line models. The GS Line is differentiated by bi-colour diamond cut 16-inch alloy wheels.

All Corsa models are fitted with LED headlights, the Edition and GS Line also featuring fog lights as standard.

OPEL Corsa’s performance continues to benefit from some of the best aerodynamics in its class. Those aren’t just good looks: its impressive drag coefficient of just 0.29 means better performance and better fuel economy.

Upgraded interior                                                                                  

Inside, the new Corsa’s upgraded infotainment system includes the new OPEL Pure Panel. In the Edition and GS Line, this really comes to life with a new 10-inch Intellilink Infotainment touchscreen featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

A 3.5-inch digital instrument cluster is fitted as standard on the Lite. This is upgraded to a 7-inch display on all other trims.

In front of the instrument display, the new Corsa features an updated steering wheel design, while new front heated seats are available on the GS Line.

Big car features

The new Corsa is not light on comfort nor safety, being impressively equipped with front and rear electric windows, air conditioning, Eco LED headlamps and safety features such as Active Lane Keep Assist. Drivers will enjoy the upgrade infotainment system and the latest in connectivity from the IntelliLink Infotainment system. 

Edition models continue to impress with additional features such as front and rear parking sensors and Side Blind Zone Alert as well as traffic sign recognition.

GS Line models are packed with tech that includes too many big car features to mention for the compact hatch. Automatic climate control and an electric parking brake as well as heated front seats in leatherette enhance the top-of-the-range Corsa.

Legendary Lite

The OPEL Corsa Lite arrived in November 1996 as a South African-specific model, the second-generation Corsa being produced locally in three-door guise. Powered by OPEL’s 1.3-litre eight-valve engine, the peppy hatchback quickly captured the country’s imagination and support, so much so that production of the Corsa Lite continued until 2007 alongside the third-generation Corsa hatch.

The popular – and affordable – little hatchback won the hearts and pockets of South Africans. Powered by the uprated 65kW 1.4-litre engine, the special models survived as Lite, Lite+, and Lite Sport during its lifetime, offering lively mobility for vibrant consumers.

The Lite name has returned to the sixth generation Opel Corsa. The entry-level model may be Lite in name, but it is far from light in specification, including spearheading the use of OPEL’s turbocharged 1.2-litre engine across the range. It makes the new hatchback livelier than ever thanks to 74kW, an engine that it shares with the middle-weight Edition version. The top-of-the-range GS Line still makes use of the 96kW version of this spectacular engine.

OPEL peace of mind

With a national dealer footprint, a standard five year / 100 000 km Warranty and a three year / 45 000 km Service plan, OPEL Complete Care adds even more confidence behind the wheel of your new OPEL Corsa. The OPEL Corsa is made to be seen – just have a look!
