The Corsa is a brand of Opel, the renowned car builder in Germany. It is a supermini hatch, which means that it is smaller than a petite family vehicle and bigger than a city vehicle. The first generation of the model was introduced by the automaker in 1982 and the model has been marketed with a range of other vehicle brands from Chevrolet, Vauxhall, and Holden. The 2018 Opel Corsa will be the sixth generation vehicle in the lineup, this model has not at all been sold in Canada or in the United States, and probably will not sell in the future.

It is expected that most of the external elements, such as the headlamps and tail lamps, including bumpers, are similar to those of the new Opel Astra. However, it is expected to be constructed on a new platform, which will be made out of frivolous materials, such as aluminum with the intention of reducing the overall weight of the vehicle and improving its overall performance.
The whole body form will be similar to that of the E variant Corsa, but the difference is that the side mirrors will be positioned nearer to the A pillar. It is also expected that the new vehicle will have a longer wheelbase than that of the E-Variant Corsa. As a result, the cabin of the new vehicle would get an additional interior space.

Opel Corsa 2018 Interior
The cabin of the 2018 Corsa is expected to be spacious, because of the extended wheelbase. As a result, it offers a comfortable sitting space and sufficient legroom, headroom, and shoulder room to passengers, including for those sitting on the back row seats. The cabin of the vehicle comes equipped with a lustrous dashboard, the huge infotainment monitor in the middle stack, and the colored buttons beneath it. The automaker most likely will tone with a more pointed design and will eliminate the trapezoidal air conditioning vents.
However, as the new Corsa comes with a slanting roof, taller people could not get sufficient headroom while they sit in the back row of the cabin. This will feel them uncomfortable while taking on longer rides. When comes to trunk space, it will be roomier than that of the current model, but not much spacious.
