The facelifted Corsa refers in style to the larger Astra and Mokka and thus matches Opel’s new image styles. LED lights currently use not 8, but 14 light elements, thus improving efficiency. There was also a new steering wheel, gear lever and upholstery. But the most important new feature in the interior is the optional digital instrument cluster, which works in tandem with the new 10-inch touchscreen mounted on the center console. We are not surprised by this change as the Corsa’s digital instrument cluster lost space used to communicate with the driver. Hopefully the new images will clear up this problem. The volume control and reversing camera have also been improved.
The Corsa Electric is now available with two powertrain options. The standard model has the same power of 136 hp, but the WLTP version has increased to 357 km. A more powerful version (156 hp) is also available, working with a larger 54 kWh battery (previously 50 kWh), extending the WLTP range to 406 km. When connected to a fast charger, the battery can be charged from 20 to 80 percent within 30 minutes.
