We can all probably agree that the most important change regarding Opel’s 2015 Corsa OPC is the addition of a new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, providing an additional 18 horsepower over the outgoing model. There’s also a slick six-speed manual transmission and an optional limited slip differential for those open track days at the Nurburgring, but does it have the looks to compiment its track-proven pedigree?
Compared to the standard Corsa, the Corsa OPC has a redesigned front fascia with aluminium-trimmed openings, black ‘wings’ jetting out from either side of the Opel grille badge, a new hood intake, side skirts, a rear diffuser, twin exhaust tips and a sporty rear hatch spoiler. Those of you familiar with the Corsa range will note the new-generation car bears a strong resemblance to the Corsa D, so if you who were a fan of the previous-gen Corsa OPC and Corsa Nurburgring Edition, you shouldn’t have any problems warming up to the new model.
We don’t think the Corsa OPC represents the full extent of what Opel’s design studio of capable of, but it’s a nice update over the previous model, and should appease European shoppers looking for a fresh hot hatchback.
