Slush and snow got you down? There’s a new Opel Corsa for that.
For 2015, Opel outfitted the Corsa mini-compact with a slew of winter-beating features to ease the stress of driving in inclement weather. Notably, the 2015 Opel Corsa comes with an optional ThermaTec windshield, which promises to do away with any concern regarding windshield fogging by expediting defrost at the push of a button.
The consistently clear visibility afforded by this optional windshield is complimented by a heated rear window and heated exterior mirrors, to help with defrosting and deicing. An auto-dimming rearview mirror and bi-xenon headlamps further aid driver visibility.
To help keep the driver nice and toasty, the Corsa also has heated seats and a heated steering wheel, like its predecessor. Opel claims that within one minute, both the seats and wheel will be comfortably heated. And then there’s an optional auxiliary heating feature, which allows the Corsa’s driver to activate a routine by remote control or timer, and heat the cabin climate to a comfortable level even before entering the vehicle.
Finally, to keep your commute as smooth and safe as possible, the Corsa comes standard with both electronic stability control, and traction control. These use automated engine and braking intervention to ensure that the 2015 Opel Corsa can keep itself on its planned trajectory around every slushy, slippery corner.
In short, the 2015 Opel Corsa is loaded with effective, time-tested technologies for beating the winter that usually only come at a higher price point. Just about the only thing that Opel doesn’t have a solution for? Envious Americans.
