Spyshots: 2014 Opel Corsa Facelift Interior – New Dash and Console

The Fiesta is one of the best selling cars in Europe right now, thanks to its refreshed Aston-style grille and sharp looks. Peugeot and Citroen are both doing well with their superminis, which have plenty of French chicness. So, what are the boring Germans at Opel doing in response? A facelift for the Corsa, of course.

New from Germany, where the Opel Corsa has once again been scooped undergoing testing. This isn't exactly the first time we've seen the car, which has been spotted on numerous occasions last year, but more details about the interior are being shown. However, these are the first shots of the rev counter, which has new dials.

A brand new speedo has been developed for this relatively old supermini. It's got a clean style, similar in style to the VW Polo. White dials provide an easy read of the speed and revs, while a new display on top indicates how much fuel you've got and the engine temperature. Right in the middle, there's a nice red TFT screen.

The dashboard appears to feature softtouch materials while the center stack is dominated by a refreshed layout for the radio and all the buttons. There will also be a version with a navigation and infotainment screen there and, as you can see, everything looks just like in the ADAM city car.

Overall, it's a wonderful new interior in an otherwise old car. The front of the Corsa is being redesigned to look like the Adam, but the back appears to be left unchanged, which is rather a shame. Just like the Corsa B and Corsa C were mechanically similar, we think the facelift will be branded as being a branded as "brand new" and will have to stay in production until at least 2017 in its current form.

The Corsa will at least get one new engine, the 1-liter SIDI Turbo three-cylinder. We also believe its hot hatch brother, the Corsa OPC, will also have a new 1.6-liter turbo rated at 200 hp, up from the current 192 hp.
