The Corsa is a brand of Opel, the renowned automobile manufacturing business in Germany. It is a small hatchback, which means that it is smaller than a petite family vehicle and bigger than a compact car. 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 and it is an adaptation of the fifth-generation Corsa, but the current model has not at all been sold in Canada or in the United States(as every Opel).
2018 Opel Corsa Exterior
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 should get a new platform, which will be made out of light materials, such as aluminum with the intention of reducing the overall weight and improving its fuel consumption(one of the advantages of Corsa). It is lighter for overall 200kg / 441 pounds.
The whole body 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.

New Opel Corsa 2018 Interior
The cabin of the 2018 Corsa is expected to be spacious, considering it’s size, because of the extended wheelbase. Now should be more comfortable, with more sitting space and sufficient legroom, headroom, and shoulder room to passengers, including for those sitting on the back row seats. The cabin is 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 German hatch comes with a slanting roof, taller people could not get sufficient headroom while they sit in the back. This will feel them uncomfortable while taking on longer rides, but the car is not designed for long rides anyway, it’s more for the city. When comes to new Opel Corsa 2018 trunk space, it will be roomier than that of the current model, but not much spacious.
