Opel Corsa 5-doorMon, 05 Jun 2006 00:00:00 -0700
Following the recent announcement of the new three-door Corsa comes its five-door sibling. While the three-door concentrates on sportiness, the five-door is more practical and features FlexFix, a new seat folding system following the method introduced on the Opel Trixx concept from 2004. The ?DualFloor? arrangement lets luggage be horizontally divided in the trunk, whose volume can extend to 1100 litres. A new interior color scheme means customers can also choose between red and blue trim, while piano lacquer is available as an option.
Outside, surface changes are most noticeable at the rear, haunches doing without the extended shoulder treatment of the three-door. The window-line is also less arched, the two models differentiated in the same manner as the larger Astra. Length increases by 183mm to 3999mm overall, while width and height grow by 61mm and 52mm respectively. Both models will make their debut at the British Motor Show in London next month.
