“Best Buy Car of Europe in 2020”: New Opel Corsa and Corsa-e Win AUTOBEST Award

The new Opel Corsa

The new Opel Corsa ticks all the boxes: in September, the sixth generation celebrated its world premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt – for the first time also as battery-electric Corsa-e. Now the small car bestseller has won the prestigious title of “Best Buy Car of Europe in 2020”.

New Opel Corsa and Corsa-e Win AUTOBEST Award

The AUTOBEST jury, made up of international journalists from 31 countries, chose the Opel newcomer as the winner and thus the car offering the most for the money. The experts confirmed this during conclusive test drives at the final in Istanbul. And with the Corsa-e, Opel offers an electric small car for everyone, which combines the practical Corsa qualities with CO2-free operation and an electric range of up to 337 kilometres (according to WLTP1).

At the same time, the award for the new Corsa completes an AUTOBEST hat- trick: no other model has been named “Best Buy Car of Europe” in three successive generations.

Already in 2007 and 2015, Corsa generations four and five took overall victory; last year the Opel Combo Life received the AUTOBEST award. Now the new Corsa and Corsa-e are continuing the tradition.

The recipe for success: the new Opel Corsa combines high everyday benefits with top technologies, economy, an exciting design plus lots of fun behind the wheel. Every Corsa variant is equipped with numerous state-of-the-art assistance systems. These include forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection as well as intelligent speed control, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.

Together with the Opel Grandland X plug-in hybrid, the Corsa-e marked the starting signal for the Opel electrification-offensive this year.

All Opel models will be electrified by 2024 – customers can then choose an “e” version of each model. Also, electric light commercial vehicles are becoming particularly important for the “last mile” in city centres. The Vivaro-e van will launch in the course of the coming year. Electrified versions of the Opel Combo Life, Combo Cargo and Zafira Life will then arrive in 2021.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
