A large front air intake now dominates front styling, along with headlamps that appear to be smaller than those of the current model.
The new model is a heavily revised version of the current Corsa’s platform, which would appear to be evident in the side and rear profile spy pics.
It’s almost a case of ‘business-as-usual’ for the Corsa’s updated side profile, and the rear appears to feature similar boot lines and tail light styling to the current model.
The boot itself is more pronounced with a bulging section in the middle, and the heavy camouflage may be hiding a smaller rear windscreen for the new model.
The 2015 Corsa is expected to receive an equipment-boost for the interior, as Opel looks to give the next Corsa (and its Astra stable-mate) a more premium look and feel.
In European markets at least, the new Corsa will almost certainly feature engine options from General Motors’ new generation small turbo and naturally-aspirated Ecotec power plants.
Since Opel’s departure from the Australian market, and confirmation that Holden will cease to build cars locally from 2017, the rumour mill has fuelled suggestions Opel’s Corsa and/or Astra could eventually become re-badged offerings in Holden’s model line-up.
The 2015 Opel Corsa is expected to debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, before going on sale in European markets early next year.
