Spyshots: Opel Corsa OPC Facelift Testing for 2014 Debut

Right now, the Opel Corsa is probably the least up-to-date model in its segment. It's been around for a very long time and is not getting better with age. But working on a tight budget means Opel can't really afford to launch an all-new model and is going to pull a major facelift instead.

The Corsa D's platform, which dates back to 2006, will be overhauled from top to bottom. The cosmetics of the car will also change, in line with the exterior and interior look of the Adam city car.

But this is not the Opel Corsa. It's the Corsa OPC, the hot hatch version. It was the first car in its class to use a 1.6-liter turbo engine and should switch to the new 1.6 SIDI Turbo. GM has prepared two version of this, and the 200 hp version offered with the Cascada convertible is the most likely one to be used.

The facelift has given this car a very strange look in our opinion. The nose is long and thin, maybe because the overhang is too long. There don't appear to be any changes from the A-pillar back, which is a real shame.

Either way, the new Corsa OPC will go on sale next year after its likely Geneva Motor Show debut.
