Opel/Vauxhall Corsa has been around for many many years now and has established itself as a popular small hatchback in all of the markets it appeared in. Here’s the facelifted 2011 model with a totally new face and updated interior. The thing is though, with every new model the Corsa gets more and more girly!

It looks like a purse! And for that reason it’s still no match for the mighty Fiat 500. That’s a shame really, becasue the Corsa, specially the hot OPC or VXR models, are such fun cars to drive. But it’s embarrassing for a guy to drive it in public. This picture below says it all!

Technically the car is unchanged than the 2010 model, and that’s OK becasue it’s been heavily revised earlier this year. But it comes with a new ecoFLEX, 1.3 CDTI developing 70 kW/ 95 hp engine with Start/Stop technology as standard that does 3.5 liters diesel per 100 km, equal to 78.5 UK mpg, and so emits just 94 g/km CO2.

Opel Corsa engine lineup offers from 65 hp to 192 hp.

Another new feature is an option to choose the most ecological route, helping to save fuel and the environment. Points of interest can be downloaded by the user.

It also has an intelligent commuter function that uses TMC information to propose alternative routes in case of traffic problems, even when navigation is not active. This function is of special interest to commuters who know their routes but want to be informed automatically of traffic jams on their way.
