Opel (and Vauxhall) are introducing a brand new engine in the subcompact Corsa along with a pair of special edition models that epitomize the yin and yang of the universe, represented by black and white.
The new Corsa packages are appropriatly titled as the All White and All Black Color Editions. With these special edition models comes a new 1.4 liter turbocharged ecoFLEX engine that will create 120 horsepower (88 kW) and 129 lb-ft. of torque from 1,750 rpm, enough to propel the colored Corsa variants from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.3 seconds. The ecoFlex, while working with an available Start/Stop system, will only use 5.5 l/100 km (that directly translates to an average of 42.7 mpg) and emits just 129 g/km of carbon dioxide. While that doesn’t matter much here in the U.S., where we don’t have CO2 tax, it is important in Europe.
For our European readers, the starting price for a three-door All-White edition is €17,810 when it launches this summer. The presser didn’t go into pricing for the rest, however options do include enhancements such as adaptive forward lighting, hill start assist, a parking assist system and even an integrated bicycle carrier.
Going with the theme, the logo bar across the front grille is also colored black or white and elegantly blends in with the rest of the vehicle. The appearance package for both the Opel Corsa All Black and All White Color Editions will include unique five-spoke 17-inch wheels, while the interior features individual touches for each variant. This includes white air vent rings for the All White edition and a matte finish for the rings on the All Black one. The seats for both models will feature silver-colored seams.
