The Opel Corsa engine portfolio is expanded with a powerful and efficient 120 bhp 1.4 liter turbocharged ecoFLEX gasoline engine with a Start/Stop system. It will make its debut together with the new All Black/All White Corsa colour themes. The turbocharged 1.4 liter ecoFLEX unit will also be available across the rest of the Corsa line-up starting this summer in Europe.

It drives the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox and enables both the three- and five-door versions of the supermini to reach a top speed of 195 km/h with a century sprint timing of 10.3 seconds. Although it churns out more horsepower than its rival, the Polo Sport, the baby VW sprints faster to the 100km/h mark at 9.7 seconds.

Thanks to the fuel saving Start/Stop technology, both the three and five door Corsa variants with the 1.4 turbo ecoFLEX unit consume petrol at a rate of 5.5L/100km with CO2 emission as low as 129 g/km.

The All Black model is finished in a Carbon Flash shade and the All White in a Casablanca White paint. The logo bar across the front grille is also body-coloured and elegantly blends in with the rest of the vehicle. The uniquely painted and polished 17" bicolor wheels match the All Black / All White body color and give the Corsa a contemporary look.

On the inside, there are white air vent rings for the All White Edition and matt chrome rings for the All Black version. Both models get special seat fabrics with silver coloured seams as standard along with sport pedals, multi-function leather steering wheel and dark tinted windows.

On the option list is the unique Flex-Fix integrated bicycle carrier, Adaptive Forward Lighting system (AFL), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and park assistant.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
