The 2015 Opel Corsa Is In For a Treat From Irmscher

German tuners are already starting to spoil Opel's new Corsa hatchback and if you're a connoisseur of the tuning scene you've probably figured out by now that Irmscher has something to do with that.

This might be just a teaser photo but from what we know about Irmscher's tuning works from the past, we don't see any reason why Corsa fans shouldn't get excited. They should also know by now that the German tuners are masters at finding balance between fuel economy, handling, performance and passenger comfort.

In other words, you won't have to pun a mortgage on your house after your 2015 Corsa leaves their garage and your life partner won't dump you with no added explanation. But let's not go that far, at least for now.

What we're looking at here is a 2015 Opel Corsa that ate its vegetables so Irmscher was pretty generous when it came to rewards. Therefore, the Corsa can be equipped with a sportier body kit comprising a front lip spoiler, a pair of redesigned side skirts and a discrete spoiler positioned on the tailgate. Besides the usual make-up, clients can also get a new front grille, a stripe vinyl that goes nicely with the car's new personality and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Germans don't deal with half-measures so the interior was next in line for a change. Sporty is the right term to describe the new cabin, as Irmscher came up with premium leather upholstery, alloy pedals and aluminum door pins.

There should be some performance tweaks as well, but we didn't get any intel on that. Sure, knowing Irmscher's appetite for engine boosts, we could expect a bonus in power and torque, but nothing too extreme, just as it happened with this Opel Astra GTC and this Insignia.
