Opel Corsa: Bestselling super-mini with enhanced engineering and top quality

The Corsa has received significant chassis improvements in 2010 for better ride comfort, enhanced steering feel and greater directional stability all without compromising its acclaimed agility and driving fun.

Dampers, springs, anti-roll bars, the rear axle, the steering gear and the software of the Electric Power Steering (EPS) have all been revised to give Corsa greater running refinement, together with a steering and ride quality typical of a vehicle from a more expensive class. The ABS and ESPPlus systems fitted in the Corsa support the internally ventilated front disk brakes and provide additional functions: In an emergency, brake control is activated in addition to brake assist and electronic brake force distribution.

In addition to its athletic, dynamic styling and great driving fun, the Corsa also offers customers top class quality.
