The new Opel Corsa GSi will be powered by a 1.4-litre 150hp turbo petrol engine. This sporty new model follows the recent launch of the Insignia GSi and will be available to order at Opel dealerships nationwide from Autumn 2018.

The new car will have 220Nm of torque with 0 to 100km/h covered in 8.9 seconds on the way to the maximum speed of 207km/h.

Estimated fuel consumption for the new Opel Corsa GSi will be between 6.3-6.2l/100kms with CO2 emissions of 147-143g.

Engineers specifically optimised responsiveness for great driving fun on winding country roads. According to Opel, the turbocharged engine with short-ratio, six-speed gearbox impresses with outstanding punch in second and third gears as well as a maximum torque plateau of 3,000 to 4,500 rpm “tailor-made for spirited driving”.

The Opel Corsa GSi also borrows the sport chassis from the Corsa OPC.

The new car has a sportier look with large air intakes, honeycomb grille, sculptured bonnet, prominent rear spoiler and side sills.
