The Opel Corsa OPC has been reworked to offer greater frugality. Combined cycle fuel consumption is cut by 7.6 percent to 7.3 l/100 km. Carbon dioxide emissions, from 190 to 172 g/km, are reduced by 9.5 percent. The gains have been achieved by optimizing the engine calibration to meet Euro 5 emissions standards. To help drivers optimize fuel economy even while driving a powerful car, a ‘shift up’ indicator light has been added to the main instrument display.

Key OPC modifications include a stronger rear axle beam, re-tuned springs and dampers, a stiffer front anti-roll bar and a ride height 10 mm lower than the regular Corsa sport chassis. The standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) has also been adjusted to match the car’s sporty character.Stopping power is in line with performance.

Superb, shell-like Recaro sports seats, with integrated head restraints and side airbags, provide optimal support and come as standard. Chrome-ringed instruments with red pointers, a center console finished in piano black lacquer, a flat-bottomed, sports leather steering wheel and aluminum pedals all add to the performance-orientated ambience.
