    New Opel Corsa with 150 hp 1.4 Turbo

    Sophisticated Everyday Athlete: New Opel Corsa with 150 hp Turbo
    Opel Media Online
    2015-03-18

    - Strong: New powerhouse available soon for just 17,380 euros
    - Sporty: 220 Nm torque, from zero to 100 in 8.9 s, 207 km/h top speed
    - Stylish: Fresh, luxurious or bold – choice of looks and equipment





    Rüsselsheim. This small powerhouse is a perfect fit for fans of the cultivated understatement – the 110 kW/150 hp Corsa 1.4 Turbo. The new four-cylinder engine in the fifth Corsa generation provides superior driving performance: 220 Nm maximum torque, 8.9 seconds for the sprint from zero to 100 and 207 km/h top speed speaks for itself. The other key data are no less impressive: in spite of its first-class power development, the new Corsa 1.4 Turbo consumes just 5.9 liters fuel per 100 km in the combined cycle and emits 136 g/km CO2. It expands the Corsa family powertrain portfolio even further, integrating this sporty driving fun between the new generation 85 kW/115 hp 1.0 Turbo three-cylinder and the exhilarating top-of-the-line OPC 152 kW/207 hp 1.6 Turbo.

    While the Corsa OPC is only available with a three-door body style, the new, sporty 1.4 Turbo is available both as a three-door for an attractive entry-level price of 17.380 euros and as a five-door starting at 18.130 euros (RRP incl. VAT in Germany). Corsa buyers can choose between two different trims: the young, fresh and sporty Color Edition and the sophisticated, well-equipped INNOVATION version. And for those who want to make the 150-hp Corsa’s inner values visible on the outside, Opel offers the Turbo Plus Package featuring charismatic OPC looks.

    “We wanted a Corsa that combines sportiness with top everyday suitability for an extremely attractive price. And we certainly achieved this with the 150 hp 1.4 Turbo,” says Peter Christian Küspert, Vice President Sales & Aftersales Opel Group, describing the newest member of the small-car family. “The new Corsa 1.4 Turbo is the perfect addition to our portfolio. Buyers can choose between the sporty, fresh three-door model and the luxurious five-door variant for the whole family.”

    Lively, fresh, sporty: 150 hp Turbo with high fuel economy

    Opel engineers focused on combining sporty driving fun with economic fuel consumption when configuring the engine. The 110 kW/150 hp 1.4-liter turbo engine delivers 220 Nm torque between 3,000 and 4,500 rpm. A six-speed transmission with soft and precise shifting transfers power to the front wheels. Thus equipped, the Corsa accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 8.9 seconds, and for the sprint from 80 to 120 km/h in fifth gear, an exceptionally important speed range for overtaking, it needs 9.9 seconds. Maximum speed is 207 km/h.

    The sporty driving performance is combined with economic fuel consumption, also due to Opel’s Start/Stop technology, which is fitted as standard and especially pays off in stop-and-go urban traffic. The three-door Corsa 1.4 Turbo consumes just 5.9 liters per 100 km and emits only 136 g/km CO2. The Euro 6 engine’s dual cam phasing allows for continuously variable valve timing and a turbocharger integrated within the exhaust manifold reduces weight and delivers compact packaging. Numerous weight-saving features include a cast iron block with a hollow frame structure, hollow-cast camshafts and a plastic intake manifold.

    Dynamic, practical, stylish: Sporty ambience inside and out

    Ample space for five people and up to 1,120 liter stowage room within a length of just 4.02 meters – the Corsa 1.4 Turbo embodies all its family’s well-known strengths and offers as much space in its compact dimensions as all of its stablemates. In addition, the Color Edition boasts comprehensive standard equipment with an extra touch of sportiness. The interior features aluminum sports pedals and darkly tinted Solar Protect heat-absorbing glazing in the rear passenger compartment, while steering wheel remote controls for the radio and cruise control provide even more convenience.

    On the exterior, the high-gloss black roof and grille as well as the chrome exhaust tailpipe set sporty accents, while the fog lights with chrome trim enhance this effect. The Corsa comes with 17-inch wheels and bi-color titanium alloy rims as standard. With the Sport Stripes White Package available at no extra cost, the rims shimmer in white.

    The Corsa INNOVATION variant is understated luxury, with chrome window trim (five-door) and chrome-plated door handles giving it a sophisticated touch. The interior ambient lighting creates a pleasant flair. A relaxing drive with excellent visibility is guaranteed by features such as the standard bi-xenon headlamps with cornering light and LED daytime running lights, automatic low beam lighting with tunnel recognition, a rain sensor for the wiper blades and the interior mirror with automatic dimming.

    Sharp, uncompromising, exciting: Turbo Plus Package for Corsa OPC fans

    For fans of the OPC look, Opel offers the Turbo Plus Package for 800 (five-door) and 950 euros (three-door). With this, the Corsa 1.4 Turbo unmistakably displays its inner qualities for all to see. Its striking looks then feature OPC Line front spoiler and rear spoiler lip as well as body-colored side sills, and the three-door model also has an additional OPC Line roof spoiler. The exterior mirror and grille in carbon design complete the Corsa’s sharp look. The interior welcomes the driver with an OPC Line sports steering wheel, leather gearshift knob and handbrake also wrapped in black leather. Optional Recaro sport seats add to the race car ambiance. With this livery the new 150 hp Corsa radiates pure motorsport feeling for everyday driving – at an affordable price.

    Does this mean it is just a retuned version of the old Cruze 1.4T? I thought all the new SGE engines had aluminum blocks.

    Yes, it is the same 1.4T. Opel offers three versions of it for the new Corsa: 1.4/90hp, 1.4T/100hp and the 1.4T/150hp. The 150hp version was first introduced in the ADAM S. The 1.0T and 1.6T have aluminum blocks.

    A very nice little motor, the biggest issue folk have with the new Corsa is not the superb new wide range of engines on offer, its the rear seats they are an all in one fold down seat, if 3 of you want to take a short break vacation it's a real struggle with 3 suitcases, most other car makers in the Corsa offer a 40/60 rear slitting seats.

    Vacation plans in tatters for 3 young girls.


    This needs to be 60/40 splitting fold down rear seat in the next update, all in one rear seat is no good.


    It would be nice see GM fix the big issues new buyers of the Corsa have like having a 40/60 rear folding seats, rather than 100s of engine options.

    I can tell you that this is a typical journalist hit job, for people that pretend they do not think beyond their convenience. Even if there was no trunk space, the girls would figure something out to get to their vacation, like combine their carry ons into one or two bags

    I thought the 1.4T was just a short term solution and being replaced?

    Auto Express are very pro VW, and very bias towards any cars made by the Volkswagen Group.

    Funny enough the Corsa is one of the most popular car hire whilst on vacation in Europe only the Ford Focus is more popular.

    Me l am just the pigeon don't shoot the messenger. l just don't like seeing a GM product put down, was just hoping GM could offer 40/60 split seats on all Corsa models in Europe so maybe GM don't receive any more bad reviews on the car like this one in Auto Express below. I don't want to see put downs turn people off buying the Corsa, just want it to do well and turn in a nice tidy profit for GM every year in places like Europe.

    Second report: Lack of split-fold rear seat hits supermini’s practicality
    18 Mar, 2015



    Mileage: 5,241
    Fuel economy: 38.4mpg

    Few people buy a supermini for its load-lugging ability, but as even the tiniest city runarounds now offer enough space for a weekend away, owners are expecting more from their small cars.

    As deputy news editor, I spend a lot of time on the road, attending car launches and other events. But at the weekend, my girlfriend, Anna, and I frequently load up the car with luggage and visit friends and family up and down the country.

    On paper that shouldn’t be a problem, as our Vauxhall Corsa’s 285-litre boot is on par with the best in class. Plus, it claims a total load volume of 1,090 litres with the rear seats folded flat, allowing plenty of room for the occasional trip to the tip.

    Yet while all that sounds impressive, after living with the car for a few months, there’s one failing I simply can’t forgive, and that’s the single-piece rear bench.

    While many rivals have 50:50 or 60:40 splits, it’s all or nothing with our Corsa Excite. Other versions have a split-fold back seat, but it’s not even an option on this car. As a result, you can’t fit three or four people plus luggage inside – some weekend essentials have to stay behind.

    This was particularly apparent when we loaded up the Corsa recently for a three-day trip to the south coast. Anna and I offered friends Hannah and Rachel a lift, not realising they’d bring their entire wardrobes, plus the kitchen sink.

    Fitting everything in was like trying to master a giant, three-dimensional game of Tetris. In the end we had to fill the footwells and pile stuff on the middle seat. Things would’ve been much easier if we’d been able to split the rear bench in two, although those in the back would’ve been squeezed on to two-thirds of the seat.

    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/vauxhal...vauxhall-corsa





    If this had been a VW with a smaller rear cargo load area without split seats, l doubt very much if Auto Express would have noticed it.

    I can't understand though why GM did not offer 40/60 seats on all the new Corsa range as standard.
