2024 Opel Corsa Facelift Introduces Updated ICE and EV Models

Opel has unveiled the highly anticipated facelift for the 2024 Opel Corsa, featuring refreshed internal combustion engine (ICE) options and enhanced electric vehicle (EV) variants. Originally planned as a General Motors product, the Corsa F became a part of the Opel and Vauxhall lineup when the PSA Group acquired the brands. Now under the Stellantis umbrella, Opel has given the supermini a significant mid-cycle update, available for both ICE and EV models, with notable design changes and technological advancements.

On the exterior, the Opel Corsa facelift showcases a new “Vizor” grille, already seen on larger Opel models, creating a unified brand identity. The matrix headlights receive a redesigned look and technical improvements, now featuring 14 individually controllable LED elements. Opel claims that these headlights not only provide an impressively bright illumination, but also offer a better glare-free experience for oncoming drivers. At the rear, the Corsa now displays prominent “Corsa” lettering, similar to the Corsa 40 limited edition, with black or matte satin silver finishes available depending on the trim. A new Grafik Grey paint option, which can be paired with a black roof, adds to the refreshed exterior aesthetic.

While the interior design appears to be carried over from the pre-facelift model, there are noteworthy updates. An optional 10-inch infotainment system, powered by a Snapdragon processor, becomes available. Opel highlights that smartphones connected via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay can be wirelessly charged simultaneously. The seat patterns have been redesigned, the shift lever updated, and the steering wheel restyled, enhancing the overall interior experience.

Under the hood, Opel introduces 1.2-liter mild-hybrid engines, delivering either 100 or 136 horsepower. These engines will be paired with a newly developed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The existing non-electrified turbo engines, with power outputs of 98 and 128 horsepower, will continue to be offered, as well as the naturally aspirated 1.2-liter unit producing 74 horsepower.

The most significant update comes in the form of the improved Corsa Electric, replacing the Corsa-e. The base version of the electric subcompact hatchback retains its 136 horsepower output and offers a WLTP range of 357 kilometers (222 miles). Additionally, Opel will introduce a more powerful variant with 156 horsepower (115 kW), 260 Newton-meters (192 pound-feet) of torque, and an extended range of 402 kilometers (250 miles). This upgraded variant shares the same setup as the revised Peugeot e-208.

Opel plans to begin customer deliveries of the facelifted Corsa in the fourth quarter of 2023. With its updated design, improved technology, and expanded range of engine options, the 2024 Opel Corsa aims to continue its success as a popular choice among supermini buyers.
