[UPDATE: 2015 Opel Corsa E made its official debut, read all about it here! ] - Opel will probably unveil the 2015 Corsa at the 2014 Paris Motor Show but until the official debut, the German manufacturer decided to reveal some “official” spy shots with its brand new car. In addition, Opel also revealed several details of the fifth-generation Corsa, which is currently doing some fine-tuning tests.

So, for the 2015MY, the Corsa E comes with a new-generation 1.0-liter Ecotec petrol engine bolted to a new six-speed manual transmission, but also with a newly developed chassis and tuned steering.

The Corsa prototypes tested by Opel engineers are powered by the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo engine that develops 115 hp (85 kW) and feature both Sport and Comfort chassis.

As you can see from the photos, there are also two current Corsa models for the sake of comparison, that are powered by a 1.4-liter (100 hp/74 kW) and 1.4-liter Turbo (120 hp/88 kw) engines.

According to the official press release, the Corsa E will continue the same successful path of the Corsa D, thanks to the newly developed 1.0-liter Ecotec engine but also thanks to the new gearbox and chassis. Opel announced that the 2015 Corsa E will hit the market at the end of 2014.
