Rüsselsheim, 20 March 2015: This small powerhouse is a perfect fit for fans of the cultivated understatement – the 110 kW/150 hp Corsa 1.4 Turbo. The new four-cylinder engine in the fifth Corsa generation provides superior driving performance: 220 Nm maximum torque, 8.9 seconds for the sprint from zero to 100 and 207 km/h top speed speaks for itself. The other key data are no less impressive: in spite of its first-class power development, the new Corsa 1.4 Turbo consumes just 5.9 liters fuel per 100 km in the combined cycle and emits 136 g/km CO2. It expands the Corsa family powertrain portfolio even further, integrating this sporty driving fun between the new generation 115 hp 1.0 Turbo three-cylinder and the exhilarating top-of-the-line OPC 207 hp 1.6 Turbo.
While the Corsa OPC is only available with a three-door body style, the new, sporty 1.4 Turbo is available both as a three-door for an attractive entry-level price of 17.380 euros and as a five-door starting at 18.130 euros (RRP incl. VAT in Germany). Corsa buyers can choose between two different trims: the young, fresh and sporty Color Edition and the sophisticated, well-equipped INNOVATION version. And for those who want to make the 150-hp Corsa’s inner values visible on the outside, Opel offers the Turbo Plus Package featuring charismatic OPC looks.
“We wanted a Corsa that combines sportiness with top everyday suitability for an extremely attractive price. And we certainly achieved this with the 150 hp 1.4 Turbo,” says Peter Christian Küspert, Vice President Sales & Aftersales Opel Group, describing the newest member of the small-car family. “The new Corsa 1.4 Turbo is the perfect addition to our portfolio. Buyers can choose between the sporty, fresh three-door model and the luxurious five-door variant for the whole family.”
