German automotive publication AutoBild has published the following video of what appears to be a facelifted Opel (Vauxhall) Corsa subcompact doing some laps around a track. As recently as a year ago, the Corsa was believed to be in for an all-new model in 2014, as the current-generation Corsa D has been around since 2006. But from the looks of it, Opel has one more refresh planned for the minuscule vehicle.
We expect this freshened Corsa to sport updated headlights, perhaps ones that are more along the lines of the even smaller and newer Opel Adam. In addition, AutoBild says that a dual-clutch transmission is possible for the updated Corsa — something that we have a difficult time believing, given that GM doesn’t have any dual-clutch gearboxes in its arsenal. We should, however, note that The General, along with Chinese partner SAIC, have been developing a dry-sump seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. So the fact that this Corsa is being piloted on the track tells us that it will feature mechanical and/or suspension-level changes on top of the updates to the exterior.
Updated Corsa — we can’t wait to see you… without any camo on.
