I try. I have brought the this weeks mag. It features the Toyota Yaris or Vitz, Jaguar XK, Audi 4X4, Renault Laguna Facelift plus alot more. The Corsa was caught cold weather testing. Its a 3 door. They tried disguising the rear lights with the current Punto lights . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/scared.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/scared.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/scared.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Here are some spy shots of the Opel Corsa from Autobild.de. This is the Opel that will share a platform with the upcoming Fiat Punto.<p>Could this possibly be a sign of the "new/updated" Saturn Ion? Let's hope so, the current Ion is horrible compared to their upcoming offerings like the Sky and Aura.<p><IMG SRC="http://bilder.autobild.de/bilder/1/52243.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://bilder.autobild.de/bilder/1/52244.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

These shops are allready a few months old.<p>Autobild just keeps rebashing them every few months on their website (as with the Opel Omega en the Opel Frontera).

I have the mag but not a scanner. The first time it was ever spied was in Germany. It was a 5 door Corsa. Its going to be at least 13mm longer I think. This is the first ever spy pics of the 3 door.

which makes me wonder if they are going to share the interior design too....

Tidal
02-19-2005, 05:30 PM
Maybe it's just a coincidence. That's a shape that's becoming more and more current, as small cars try to mimic MPV's so they can maximize interior space. Look at the Honda Jazz and the Mitsu Colt, they both have a similar arrangement. <br>As for the Corsa, that rear really looks like a mini Astra, so it should be cool. Can't wait to see it undisguised, this generation never really did it for me, style wise.

Autocars spy photographers have exposed the all-new supermini 12 months before it appears on UK roads, and these pictures prove its makers intent to shake up the segment with an eye-catching model in the spirit of the 1993 original.<p>Vauxhalls parent company Opel is currently shaking out the Corsas final gremlins in intensive cold-weather testing in Sweden. It has gone to great lengths to disguise the grille, head- and tail-lights, but despite the tape and cladding its clear that the new Corsa will follow in the footsteps of the Astra and Tigra in assuming Vauxhalls new wedgy, sharp-edged design language.<p>Underneath lie the mechanicals co-developed with Fiat, which will also underpin next years new Punto. Although all the sheet metal and interior fittings differ, Vauxhall insiders have hinted that many of the cars hard points  wheelbase, track width and bonnet height for example  will be identical.<p>The new Vauxhall will be offered in both three- and five-door variants and engines will include 80bhp 1.2-, 90bhp 1.4-, 105bhp 1.6- and 140bhp 1.8-litre petrol engines. A GM-tuned version of Fiats excellent 70bhp 1.3-litre diesel will also be offered, alongside a 1.7-litre diesel with 100bhp.<p>The fastest model will be the VXR, built to take on Renaults next Renaultsport Clio. This is expected midway through 2007 and should comfortably eclipse the 180bhp of the Meriva VXR, itself due next January.<BR><BR>

That's wrong. It has. Both are developed on the same platform (I think it is a GM platform). The development was nearly finished before GM and FIAT broke up.

The fact that they are built on the same platform doesn't mean they have to look the same or even near. The Mazda 2/Ford Fusion or Mitsubishi Colt/Smart ForFour are outstanding examples of this. To have a this two cars to look similar would be a mistake for Opel (but maybe a smart move from Fiat <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/icon11.gif" BORDER="0"> )

They're also using those door mounted side mirrors similar to the ones found on the Honda Fit/Jazz/City, all-new Civic sedan, Mini Cooper and all-new Lexus IS.

Heres a bodyshell of the 3 door:<p>Article from Autocar:<p>We can exclusively reveal the sporty, coupe-like profile of Vauxhalls next-generation Corsa, courtesy of these bodyshells (right) scooped during manufacturing development. Like its bigger brother, the Astra, the new Corsa three-door gets a wedgy profile and steeply raked rear windscreen.<p>The radical look is aimed at making design one of the main selling points, as the current model is seen to have lost its creative edge, a weakness reinforced in customer clinics that have helped designers push through the more radical look. The styling of the five-door will be more conservative.<p>Improving ride and handling is also a major aim for the new Corsa todays car holds little appeal for enthusiasts.<p>The new Corsa is based on an all-new platform shared with the next Fiat Punto. Bigger all-round than todays Corsa, it still features conventional strut/torsion beam suspension, although the design is more sophisticated than that of todays car.<p>The three-door body scooped here will spawn two sporty derivatives  an SRi powered by a new 140bhp 1.8-litre engine and a VXR with a 180bhp turbocharged 1.6. Other petrol engines will include a 60bhp 1.0, 80bhp 1.2, 90bhp 1.4 and 105bhp 1.6, while the two diesels on offer will be 1.3-litre Fiat JTD direct-injection units with 75bhp or 90bhp.<p>Expect to see the new Corsa at next Marchs Geneva Motor Show, with UK sales starting in August.<p>Pics:<br><A HREF="http://img163.echo.cx/img163/1927/185552141713su.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img163.echo.cx/img163/1...u.jpg</A><p><A HREF="http://img168.echo.cx/img168/5151/185552151910yp.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img168.echo.cx/img168/5...p.jpg</A><p>Source: Autocar<p>This week Autoexpress have reaveled the sporty version of the Corsa<p>Enjoy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0"> <br><BR><BR>

I think if it's based on Fiat Grande Punto, it will be bit larger than Corsa but i reckon the upcoming Corsa's face could be the same cute look as current Corsas. I hope it will bring here.

Darn i wish Holden didnt replace the Barina wit a 'rebadged Daewoo Kalo' Barina.... the next-gen. one (Euro model)... i guess would look mad if its got styling direction from the Astra and Vectra.<p>Stupid Holden and its rebadged Daewoo strategy

MrMGMan
09-28-2005, 11:36 AM
The two cars are going to be largely similar in terms of proportions, and in the relationship between doors and wheelarches, because more than simply sharing the same platform, they share an identical wheelbase and the same structural hard points.

dukedb9
09-29-2005, 08:07 AM
Argh - why is there no way that this is going to come to the US.<p>It's especially frustrating in light of the small cars that are starting to be sold here by the Japanese - Fit, Vitz, Tiida are all going to be sold in the US at some point, probably due to rising gas prices (which will be permenant, IMHO).<p>I don't see a small car fitting with Saturn's move up market (Aura, etc.)<p>It would be REALLY cool if it came over as a Pontiac hot hatch. But I'm not holding my breath.

Arturo
11-23-2005, 03:28 PM
I'm just wondering whether there will be be plain 3-doors Corsa or that Opel will bring it as a "hot and spicy" Corsa GTC (meaning prices are similar to that of the 5-doors version). And then there's an "extra hot and spicy" version waiting: the 180 hp Corsa OPC.<p>Another question that came to my mind is whether GM will proliferate this Corsa as much as they did the former ones. There won't be a Corsa-based Holden Barina (they switched to Daewoo Kalos; why???), but will there be a BR Chevy Corsa (or will they switch to rebadged Daewoos too?).<p>And I agree with the NA friends on CSS, that a Saturn Corsa would be a nice idea ...

It looks pretty much like I expected, the door and front quarterlight arrangement is very much like the Grande Punto's, as are the proportions - no great surprise given that they share the same platform, wheelbase and underbody structure.

CosworthKid

I preffer the Punto personally. As much as this car have in common with the Fiat, the Punto looks very sexy,sleek and sporty. This looks more like a Yaris or 207 somehow, its looks fatter,more bubble like and "cute" rather than classy like the Punto. Still, i guess i have to see it in person to make a proper opinion.

Does not the door frame in that last pic look a little bit...odd? I mean the little fornt window is not that little, and the rear window is quite small, it gives to me a strange sensation of front/back symmetry. I think the Grande Punto is better design-wise. And the interior is nothing special, maybe because of that horrid preproduction materials.

MrMGMan
12-18-2005, 08:45 AM
Even the basic form of the interior, the slant and angle of the dashboard, seems to be borrowed from the Grande Punto. I'm not too sure about those circular vents, they look a tad cheap and tacky, but that could just be the nasty pre-production materials used. Hopefully the final production version will use plusher materials, perhaps with a chrome surround for the vents.

Nibnob

Don't expect to much -- the Corsa is built to be sold on a low price ... chrome-sorrounded vents might be possible for a sport or exclusive version.

MrMGMan
12-22-2005, 08:33 AM
Well... MG Rover managed to include chrome ringed vents on the final Rover 25 and MG ZR models after the 2004 facelift to those cars, and they were operating on a miniscule budget in comparison to Opel/Vauxhall.

My dutch isnt good, but i totally agree with the "sarcastic" remark on the title : mini 307!! It looks just like a Peugeot and like a pre-facelifted 307. And the rear lights are very 207 and larger than the car's size, just like on any Peugeot. So once again, i preffer the Grande Punto much better than this new Corsa. The Punto looks smart,sexy,sporty and individual. This just looks like an older Peugeot. Some ppl think it looks like a smaller Astra..well i still vote for the Peugeot likelyness..not impressed at all. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Damn, another case of "why can't GM do this in the US". Sometimes I think that GM should promote it's German and Australian Designers to head their american divisions. If gas prices continue their upward climb, and Saturn truly becomes a seller of rebranded Opels, cars such as this should rapidly gain in popularity in the US.

Ray
04-12-2006, 08:39 PM
It would be a better car than a Daewoo/Holden/Chevrolet Barina though, wouldn't it?<br>I thought the previous Barina (Corsa) had a bit more class than all others in the class. The latest Fiesta should be light years ahead than the old Barina, but for one thing - the Barina could be bought with rear disc brakes (i think only on the SRi version) while none of its competitors can be had with rear discs. <p>

CosworthKid
04-13-2006, 04:22 AM
IMO rear disks in this type of car are not really necessary. Current Corsa/Barina was always a bit ancient compared to newer cars but sold well due to mostly good prices. This one should be indeed much better since the Grande Punto already turned out to be a top supermini. Too bad you guys in Aus will be stuck with that Daewoo/Chevy. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Yeah but i reckon the front & rear lights look a bit too much like the 207's, and if i didnt know this was an Opel/Vauxhall i would swear it was a Peugeot. So when the RC or GTi(?) version of the 207 is out, it will make this look like a wannabe IMO...still looks nice, but just pointing out my opinion

That looks great! Now what kind of Saturn can they rebadge that as?

I still think it looks unimaginative. It borrows too many elements from Peugeot (aestheticaly) so i refuse to give Opel credit for this design. Id buy a 207 instead

Its aggressive front and rear bumpers are clearly visible, as is the centrally-mounted triangular exhaust pipe. Expect the production model to have integrated front fog lights, though.<p>The Corsa will use a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine producing 197bhp. That should be good enough to propel the car to 60mph in around seven seconds, and to ensure a top speed of around 150mph.<p>The Corsa VXR will be officially unveiled at next March's Geneva motor show, with UK sales expected to start in April. Expect a price tag of around 15,000<p>Source: Autocar

Looks great but i dont really dig VXR's. They seem to be the exact opposite of fast Ford's and VW's. Ford and VW try to make great handling sport hatches with more emphasis on driving pleasure and everyday use of the cars...VXR cars are stuffed with more power than they can usualy handle, lots of torgue understeering as a result and not nearly as much thinking into the cars as the other two. I mean look at the Astra VXR compared to the Focus ST. The Astra has much more bhp power but the Focus is much better overall and more acomplished. Also take into account how long Ford and VW take to release their ST and GTi (due to exhaustive fine-tuning and testing) and look at the VXR cars : Corsa is just out and the VXR is already loose!<br>Looks great though, i do admit, and scorpio14 - i think it would be great for Australia but a lot of HSV purists will hate it (Astra wasnt that well received either)

But there have been tests on the car (not the offical car, the one at the motor show which is nearly identical) and while they liked the car, it didn't bring the fizzle that it should have. Hopefully when they get the full version in.<p>And a lot of people have looked down upon the HSV Astra. Personally, I do as well. It should have been a Holden IMHO. I just do not picture a HSV costing $40,000. For me a real HSV has a V8 in it. But that is just me. Astra sales are down 54.1% I just read, so hopefully this car can be like the king of all Astras and bring sales.<p>BTW, I'd own one of those little Corsas! They look wicked! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I think the Astra will still sell better than the Corsa (VXR), more people would be able to afford a smaller, cheaper car.

The reviews seem to be very positive. AUTOCAR UK calls the Corsa the king of its class. Too bad the styling is not truly emotional and fresh, like the Astra was when launched 3 years ago.
