Opel is set to introduce the three-door Corsa GSi in May and according to Opel, the GSi promises to deliver a sophisticated, luxurious and sporty driving experience.
On the outside, the GSi features a sporty design with large air intakes, sculptured bonnet, prominent rear spoiler and moulded side sills. The front gains a large honeycomb grille and the exterior rear-view mirror housings finished in carbon colour.
The rear features a prominent spoiler on the edge of the roof and sporty chrome tailpipe. It also features the OPC’s sport suspension and brakes (with red callipers) and rides on 18-inch light alloy wheels.
The cabin comes standard with leather cladding, Recaro performance front seats and a sport steering wheel. The gear knob is finished in leather while the pedals gain an aluminium treatment.
Under the bonnet lurks a turbocharged 1.4-litre engine with 110 kW of power and 220 Nm of torque. Opel says the engine features a special GSi-calibration for increased responsiveness. Power is sent to the front wheels via a short-ratio, six-speed gearbox.
The new Opel Corsa GSi is priced at R365 900 and will be available in May.
