2011 Opel Corsa Color Line: details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 16, 2010

Opel is developing new special editions of the Corsa under the name “Color Line.” Opel Design’s development program will offer the sporty special editions in three and five-door body formats. The cars are equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and are offered in bright body colors and design themes.

Features include the sport chassis, enveloping sport seats, dark tail lamps, dark tinted glass and a chromed, oval exhaust pipe.

In addition, the center console is in piano paint. The cars are fitted with alloyed pedals and sporty seats as well as air vent rings.

The stitching on the seat upholstery is color-coordinated with the exterior paint. Each of the variants of the Corsa Color Line is offered with the 1.2 and 1.4 gasoline engines and the 1.3 and 1.7 CDTI powertrain.

The Corsa Color Edition was the first member of the Color Line, coming after the “Black & White.” It features a black roof and is complemented by high-gloss black, five-spoke alloy wheels.

The exterior color options include Casablanca White, Sunny Melon yellow, Magma red, Oriental Blue or Black Sapphire. The Corsa Color Race is expected to appeal to drivers who want a racy theme.

The line takes its inspiration from the traditional livery of Opel’s race and rally cars of the 1960s and 1970s. It is available in yellow, red or white and it also has a black hood and tailgate, with each boasting a checkered flag motif.

For now, the Corsa Stripes is just an idea but it’s likely to be the next variant to be added to the Corsa lineup.

Opel describes it as a “special execution" of a sporty Corsa, featuring two large black or white stripes running over its body from the hood to the tail gate. The color of the stripes can be made to match the external mirror caps and the 17-inch alloy wheels.
