1982 saw the production of a supermini car known as the Opel Corsa. For almost 40 years, Opel, the German automobile manufacturer has been creating one of the most popular European vehicles known to the automotive world. Although it has never been sold in the United States or Canada, European countries have continued to sell the Corsa. These compact vehicles are popular and are able to be maintained and serviced through Opel Corsa service manuals.
Throughout the almost 40 years of production, the Opel Corsa has seen a number of updates, revisions and changes. There have been a total of 6 generations including one electrical. Currently, the Opel Corsa is on its fifth generation which is known as the Opel Corsa E. The Opel Corsa F was recently debuted in 2018 as a concept car but as of 2019, it is in production.
Owners of Opel Corsa’s date all the way back to 1982 which saw the first generation, Corsa A. The Opel Corsa A was in production for 11 years and saw over 20 different engine types. There were a number of trim options available as well which included sporty and luxury versions. The first generation Corsa A was available in a three-door hatchback, two-door sedans, and four and five-door sedan options were introduced in 1984. Opel Corsa A’s were sold in a number of European countries including France, Spain and Portugal.
Over the following 30 years, the Opel Corsa transformed from Corsa A to Corsa E which is Opel’s current generation of the Corsa. During the Corsa B generation, sales moved over to Asian countries including China. Because the Corsa was so popular and saw so many revisions over the years, a lot of other automobile manufacturers also began to rebadge this model. General Motors, Suzuki, Chevrolet, and Buick all reinvented their own Opel Corsa models so that they could be sold all over the world. Places like Australia, Brazil and Mexico saw the Opel Corsa in other versions.
The current Opel Corsa was released in 2014 at the Paris Motor Show. It debuted with a new interior and revised exterior. The upgrades given to the current and fifth generation of the Corsa E were significant enough to compete with other supermini cars in production, currently. However, because the Corsa has been so popular over the past 40 years, similar models run the streets today – all over the world. Owners of Corsa’s and similar models can have their vehicles maintained by technicians who will make use of an Opel Corsa workshop manual.
