Rumours have been swelling as to exactly when – and if ever – the 2021 Opel Corsa will make its South African debut. This comes following the announcement of the completion of merger of PCSA and FCA brands.
The announcement of the distributorship comes with great news: The introduction of the much-anticipated 6th Generation Opel Corsa, which will be available at Opel dealerships across South Africa from mid-January this year.
According to Opel, this new model sports a 3-Cylinder – 1.2l petrol engine generating 55kW. On the exterior is a statement of the new bold & pure design coming from Opel. The brand insists this emphasises the precision of German engineering, combined with the bold sculptural artistry.
Step inside, the design of the cockpit features a driver-oriented instrument panel with a distinctly sporty, yet welcoming personality executed with German precision.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new Corsa lost up to 10% of weight, it is about 108 kg less than the car it replaces, even though they are roughly the same size. The new Corsa is 4.06 meters long, with boot capacity of 309 litres, an increase on the outgoing model of 10%.
The new Corsa Edition will cost R289,900 at launch and will be simply the first derivative introduced this year, with further versions planned for the first quarter this year
