Opel Corsa facelift (2023): one petty annoyance was not resolved

The Opel Corsa facelift resembles its big brother, the Opel Astra. This is due to the Opel Vizor brand face and the newly designed rear. But in the interior we discover an old annoyance.

What do you think of the new design? The Opel Corsa now has the Opel Vizor, the brand face that adorns all new Opels. The black ‘visor’ runs from headlight to headlight and in the middle an also black Opel logo tries to hide. Although the emblem is silver in some versions.

The vertical black stripes in the lower bumper, which resemble air intakes, make the new B-segmenter optically wider. The model name is written on the tailgate in block letters, neatly according to the latest fashion.

Annoyance in the interior of the Opel Corsa (2023)

The interior looks as we remember it. According to Opel, the 10-inch touchscreen is new. The digital instruments behind the wheel work on the basis of the Snapdragon Cockpit Platform. The menus are probably nicer and/or faster, because the Snapdragon is an all-in-one chip that makes that possible.

If we look at the dashboard photo and zoom in on the digital gauges through the steering wheel, we see plastic panels to the left and right of the screen. The current Corsa also has that ugly solution to ‘package’ the screen. It may be silly to complain about this with an affordable car, but if you install a digital set of instruments as a car brand, make sure that the screen fills the entire ‘tube’. By filling the empty space with plastic, your expensive digital meters still look cheap.

Opel Corsa Electric gets 156 hp and 54 kWh

The big news is under the hood and the occupants of the Corsa Electric. It is available with two electric powertrains: the old one with 136 hp and 50 kWh, and the new one with 156 hp and 54 kWh. That new, large battery lifts the WTLP range over 400 kilometers.

It is striking that Opel lets you choose between the two powertrains. In other Stellantis models, the old powertrain makes way for the new. As with the new Peugeot e-2008. The Jeep Avenger was the first for this combination of 156 hp and 54 kWh.

The 100 hp and 136 hp three-cylinder petrol engines are slightly more economical due to the transformation to mild hybrid. But only in conjunction with the new dual-clutch automatic transmission. Corsas with a manual gearbox only become more economical if their driver cooperates with his or her driving behaviour.

The renewed Corsa will still be at the Opel dealer in 2023.
