Next-generation Opel/Vauxhall Corsa will be inspired by the Astra GTC

Several sources said that the appearance of the Opel-Vauxhall’s fifth-generation Corsa is inspired by the much-admired Vauxhall Astra GTC. Production of the new supermini will begin in April 2014. It will be available with a variety of efficient new engines and could be lighter than one ton in entry-level form as part of its weight-saving plan.

Its Astra GTC-derived styling may be the key to the success of the Corsa. The car’s style has become more dramatic and rakish but it still keeps its present ‘grown-up’ dynamics, says Autocar. A rendering of the three-door model shows that its design is more daring than the five-door with a profile that almost looks like a coupé.

However, the two cars will have the same GTC-inspired front end with big headlights and a slim chrome grille. It’s also expected to feature the ‘blade’ surfacing that Vauxhall uses in the doors. The new Corsa, internally known as ‘Corsa E’, will be built on GM’s global Gamma II platform for small cars. It was used on the latest Chevrolet Aveo and will also be used for Vauxhall’s forthcoming Mokka compact SUV.
