Opel Corsa OPC Facelift

03

Opel  announced the launch of a revised version for performance model Corsa OPC.  The model received an Euro 5 engine  and a improved direction.

After this Corsa facelift, earlier this year, Opel comes in the autumn with a series of revisions to the OPC performance version.   Opel Performance Center team was able to improve performance of the train’s propulsion and steering to provide customers a unique experience.

The model retains the same 1.6-liter turbocharged engine capable of delivering 192 HP and a torque of 230 Nm of torque delivered between 1980 and 5580 rpm. Torque value can increase up to 266 Nm, thanks to an overboost function. Resources allow OPC youngest accelerate from 0 to 60 mph  in just 7.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 140 mph.

Even if performance remains on top, consumption and  emissions decrease by 7.6,  respectively 9.5 percent, allowing the german model to have a bigger autonomy for about 50 km+. Consumption decreased from 7.6 to 7.3 litres/60 miles in average cycle, while emissions are also reduced from 190 to 172 g / mile.  In those circumstances, the car manage to fulfill Euro 5 pollution standards.

Engineers have been busy also with electronic steering system, which has become more accurate thanks to power steering recalibration(EPS), updated software  and using of  a new material for steering. List of mechanical changes includes springs, dampers and anti-roll bar and even a ground clearance lowered by 10 mm.
