Opel Corsa production will be increased due to high demand

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Production of Opel's revised Corsa range has been increased by 16,000 units to cope with the high demand. The plant in Eisenach, Germany, will build 9,000 extra units while the plant in Zaragoza, Spain, will produce 7,000 units more. Opel made the decision to boost production after it noted the sales increases in Spain, Italy, France and Belgium.

Buyers of the new Corsa will choose from either a three- or a five-door version, as well as decide which engine -- from the 1l 3 cylinder unit (65 hp) to the top-of-the-line 1.7 CDTI diesel (130 hp/300 Nm).

The Corsa has a fuel consumption rating of under 5l/100 km for all diesel versions, while the gasoline ones average in between 5 and 5.5l/100 km.

This April, Opel announced the availability of the 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX unit, generating 10% added power, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 10%.

Other modifications include optimized dampers, springs, anti-roll bars, rear axle, electric steering gear and its calibration software. Opel also has plans for an exclusive Color Race edition of the Corsa, which has a checkered motif and vibrant motor sport Sunny Melon Yellow color.
