The hot new Opel Corsa OPC hatch has now made its official debut, following a series of leaked images that surfaced earlier this week.

The compact new hot hatch’s debut follows the launch of its regular sibling in July last year.

As expected, the new Corsa OPC is powered by an upgraded version of the previous model's turbocharged 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine.

Producing 154kW - just a few killerwasps more than its predecessor - and sending power to the front wheels through a six-speed manual, the new hot hatch promises a 0-100km/h time of 6.8 seconds.

The Corsa OPC of course boasts a sports-tuned chassis, equipped with Frequency Selective Damping, designed to adapt to the driving and strike a balance between sporty handling and comfort.

On the styling front, the new Corsa OPC gets a mean body-kit that builds on the look of past models in the family, along with a wide letterbox intake in the bonnet.

OPC’s familiar split-spoke alloy wheel design fills the OPC’s guards, and the rear is set apart from the regular model by a top-mounted spoiler and a pair of exhaust tips in the bumper.

This all-new model might also make its way to Australia as a new entry model in Holden’s coming range of Opel-sourced options, which will soon include the Astra VXR and GTC, the Insignia VXR and the new Cascada convertible.

If the Corsa OPC (VXR for us) comes to Australia, expect it to slot in between the warm Barina RS and the hero Astra VXR.

We could also see the regular Corsa come to Australia in the future, to be sold alongside the main Barina range as a more premium option that would face off against models like the Renault Clio and Peugeot 208.
