While all engines have been reworked in 2010 to offer more power with lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, a new 70 kW/ 95 hp ecoFLEX 1.3 CDTI version now equipped with Start/Stop technology further increases the Opel Corsa's overall efficiency: The three-door version only requires 3.5 liters diesel per 100 km and emits just 94 g/km CO2.

Start/Stop technology especially enables a reduction in fuel consumption in urban traffic - at 4.2 liter/100 km versus 4.6 l/100 km previously for the Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX emitting 98 g/km CO. 

A complete family on constant move 
The powertrain line-up of the Opel Corsa ranges from 48 kW/65 hp to 141 kW/192 hp. This engine family was updated in 2010 with many new engines meeting Euro 5 emission standards that reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 13 percent while increasing engine power in most applications. 

To help drivers lower their fuel consumption even while driving a powerful car, a 'shift up' indicator light was added to the main instrument display.
The reworked 1.6-liter turbo 141 kW/192 hp OPC version continues to top the Corsa family. The face of the Opel Corsa OPC was also redesigned to match the rest of the new line-up, especially with new headlamps and a new grille.
On the diesel side, different versions of the 1.3 and 1.7 CDTI units offer outputs ranging from 55 kW/75 hp to 96 kW/130 hp - and merely sip diesel; all have fuel consumption between 3.5 and 4.6 liters per 100 kilometers.
Flair and individuality for every taste
The four trim levels Essentia, Enjoy, Cosmo and Sport that enable customers to personalize their Opel Corsa exactly as they wish have been reworked for 2011. New contemporary colors and decors are offered both inside and out. In the Charcoal environment, the Enjoy interior can also be dressed with more expressive Tabasco Orange or Steel Blue decors. 

The new exterior color palette integrates a delicate off-white Guacamole, eye-catching Grasshopper green and daring, warm Henna.
In addition, the successful, sporty Color Line that already accounts for some 20 per cent of Corsa sales in Germany extends its offer. In addition to the familiar Color Edition and Color Race models, it now features a new pack called Linea with bold, 17 inch wheels in white or glossy black with matching large stripes along the body. The Linea Pack is available on Enjoy, Sport and Cosmo.

Interior sports contemporary colors, sensuous textures and 21st century technology
The Opel Corsa continues to offer one of the roomiest and most attractive interiors in its class. The welcoming nature of its cockpit has been given a substantial make-over.

The layout of the attractive, user-friendly dashboard has been retained, but the surface treatments - a clever blend of matt and high-gloss materials - have been the subject of noticeable upgrades in quality and appearance.
The variety of available finishes, fabrics, and colors helps to differentiate between the trim levels and also ensures that all customers find the perfect trim to match their wishes. Key features of the interiors are the newly decorated center consoles, with the striking patterns and colors of the instrument panel pads, available in modern color combinations that give the interior a young and fresh character.
The new "Touch & Connect" infotainment system is a multi-media all-round unit with navigation system that is universally connectible and easy to use. Its many upscale features include dynamic navigation, Aux-in and USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The navigation is menu-driven via a touch screen.

Opel Corsa ecoFLEX: Low Fuel Consumption and CO2, Lots of Driving Fun
The ecoFLEX variant is the lowest-consumption, especially low-emission member in each Opel model line-up. The new Corsa ecoFLEX ideally illustrates Opel's philosophy of developing ecologically responsible cars that are still fun to drive.

Opel's new super-efficient Opel Corsa ecoFLEX is powered by the sophisticated, 70 kW/95 hp 1.3 CDTI diesel engine boosted by a turbo with variable geometry and now equipped with Start/Stop technology. Meeting Euro 5 emission standards and equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter that cuts the emissions that are the most detrimental to health, it needs only 3.5 l/100 km and releases just 94 g/km CO2 in its three-door variant (five-door: 3.6 l/100 km and 95 g/km) while delivering powerful and lively performance. 

With the Corsa ecoFLEX, fleet and private drivers in many European countries may benefit from special eco tax advantages and very low fuel costs without polluting the air with diesel particulates.
The 1.3 CDTI engine in the new Corsa ecoFLEX 70 kW/95 hp uses a turbocharger and delivers up to a plentiful 190 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 3,250 rpm.
The engine of the Opel Corsa ecoFLEX combines two strengths: low CO2 and high performance. Opel engineers achieved this by using a turbo with variable turbine geometry, which significantly improves the engine's performance.

They also optimized the calibration on the engine to greatly increase low-end torque and peak power, making a new transmission set-up possible: A longer transmission gear ratio was selected for the five-speed unit, to the benefit of fuel consumption and CO2 values below 100 g. The new 70 kW/95 hp Corsa ecoFLEX has a top speed of 177 km/h and needs only 12.3 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standstill.
Not only powertrain technology, but further engineering measures make the Opel Corsa ecoFLEX super efficient. Aerodynamics have been improved by lowering the car by 20 mm and optimizing the air flows via the air intakes. 

Wheels are fitted with newly designed, more efficient wheel caps. The Corsa ecoFLEX is equipped with special 175/70 tires that are roll-resistance-optimized and fitted to lighter, flow formed, 14-inch steel wheels, while 15-inch wheels are optional.

Opel ecoFLEX: Start/Stop to reduce CO2 emissions
Opel is progressively making Start/Stop fuel-saving technology available on most ecoFLEX models. After the 55 kW/75 hp version of the Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI in summer 2010, which benefited from 10.8 per cent lower fuel consumption thanks to this system (from 4.5 to 4.0 liter per 100 km), the most powerful version of the 1.3 CDTI now also receives the system. By the end of 2011, all Opel product lines will feature this eco-friendly technology.
The Start/Stop principle is simple: An engine which is not running does not consume fuel. With a Start/Stop system, instead of idling at a traffic light or in a traffic jam, the engine stops when the driver engages the neutral gear and releases the clutch pedal. 

This is indicated by the revolution counter needle moving to the "AUTOSTART" position, also signaling that the system is ready to restart the engine. When the traffic light turns green or traffic gets fluid again, drivers simply press the clutch pedal to restart the engine, shift into first gear and take off. By eliminating idling time, engines emit less greenhouse gases.

In addition, with no engine noise, stops get quieter for the car occupants as well as for pedestrians and cyclists in urban areas. Naturally, owners see the greatest savings in city driving. In the urban cycle, the 70 kW/95 hp Corsa 1.3 CDTI with Start/Stop emits 8.7 percent less CO2 than the similar version without this eco-friendly technology - or, 4.2 l/100 km, compared with 4.6 l/100 km without Start/Stop. In the combined cycle, the Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI with Start/Stop requires only 3.5 liters of diesel per 100 km.
The following conditions must be fulfilled to activate Start/Stop:
  • the hood is fully closed
  • the driver's door is closed
  • the seat belt is fastened
  • the engine is warmed up
  • the battery is sufficiently charged
  • engine coolant temperature is not too high
  • ambient temperature is not too low (below -10°C), below this temperature the system will not be activated
  • brake vacuum is sufficient to ensure optimal braking capability
  • the self-cleaning function of the diesel particulate filter is not active
If there is any change in any of these conditions during an automatic engine stop ordered by the driver (AUTOSTOP), the system may restart the engine automatically without the driver's intervention. And as some drivers may prefer to switch the system off, they can press the ECO button located on the center console to manually deactivate it. The deactivation is indicated by the LED in the button turning off. 

ecoFLEX: Continuous improvements for the environment
When launched in 2007, the Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX (55 kW/75 hp) already showed remarkably low fuel consumption of only 4.5 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km (combined). A year later, the values were reduced to 109 g/km and 4.1 l/100 km or even to 105 g and 4.0 l/100 km when models were not equipped with the particulate filter.

Starting January 2010, the Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX switched to the more powerful 70 kW/95 hp variant, nevertheless reducing fuel consumption and emissions figures to 3.7 l/100 km and 98 g/km CO2 ( 3-door). Equipped with Start/Stop, the same Opel Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX (70 kW/95 hp) today reaches 94 g/km CO2 and 3.5 l/100 km. Progress in action!

Today the brand features a number of ecoFLEX engineered cars in addition to the Corsa, including the Insignia and Astra, and continues to work on improving all members of this family of especially economical vehicles.
The Insignia ecoFLEX, for instance, boasts a remarkable CD value of 0.26, placing it among the top streamlined sedans in the world. It combines fuel consumption of 4.9 liters diesel per 100 km and 129 g/km CO2 with an output of up to 118 kW/160 hp (Insignia Sports Tourer: 134 g/km CO2 and 5.1 l/100 km).
The new Astra 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX launched in early 2011 has a Start/Stop system that holds its fuel consumption down to 3.9 liter diesel per 100 km and emissions to 104 g/km CO2 (Sports Tourer: 4.1 liter and 109 g).
From Agila to the Zafira, Opel's wide range of ecoFLEX models meets the most diverse needs of drivers in terms of driving profile and type of use while remaining affordable. The energy mosaic offered by Opel includes gasoline, diesel, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

Corsa Color Line Shines with Individualized Colorful Performance
Color Edition and Color Race models bring even more panache to the Opel Corsa formula, with bright body colors and design themes presented on 17-inch alloy wheels. They are always combined with the sport chassis, enveloping sport seats, alloyed pedals, dark tail lamps, dark tinted glass and a chromed, oval exhaust pipe.

In the interior, the center console is in piano black while air vent rings and stitching on the seat upholstery are color-coordinated with the exterior paint. All variants are available with the volume engines as of the 1.2 liter gasoline unit. 

Small car showcases big ideas
The small Opel powerhouse's halogen Adaptive Forward Lighting offers more safety with dynamic curve and static cornering light. Dynamic curve light ensures improved illumination around bends by swiveling the headlamps up to 15 degrees right and left of the vehicle into the oncoming curve. 

Static cornering light illuminates an area to the right or left of the vehicle up to a 90 degree angle, a big help when maneuvering in poorly lit areas. The Corsa's AFL system also comes with parking lights in the rear and darkly tinted headlamps.

A unique comfort feature in this class is the optional steering wheel heating, which quickly warms up drivers' hands. The temperature reaches approximately 34° C to provide ideal steering wheel warmth on cold days.
In line with Opel's commitment to offer easy and comfortable fully integrated flexibility, the Opel Corsa is available with the FlexFix carrier system - the optimal transport solution for bicycles. Opel is the only manufacturer to offer the innovative FlexFix system which requires no installation or removal - it simply pulls out of the rear bumper like a drawer.

A simple pull of the lever situated near the lip of the trunk and the carrier slides out of the bumper. No special equipment or tools are needed. When not in use, the FlexFix drawer can simply be pushed back to stow away almost invisibly in the rear bumper.

The FlexFix bike carrier, which features additional rear lights, can carry up to two bicycles with wheel sizes from 18 to 28 inches. The maximum weight capacity is 40 kg, with each bike weighing up to 20 kg. For optimal safety, an acoustical warning signal engages when the car is in reverse.
A special transportation box with 160 liter load volume is offered as an accessory and can be fitted to the FlexFix system, making it even more flexible.
