All-new Opel Corsa Review - Here comes Opel's small car champion

Ciro de Siena gets behind the wheel of the all-new Opel Corsa. On top of the review, he looks at the rivals; the Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta, and the Korean duo of the Hyundai i20 and Kia Rio.

This is an entirely new Opel Corsa and in many ways, it represents the future of the brand, for a number of reasons, many of which you can't even see. That's because this Opel is based entirely on a Peugeot chassis and makes use of a Peugeot engine and transmission. It is, under the skin, no different from Peugeot's new 2008.

This Corsa really has its work cut out for it; it has to take on a myriad of competitors including, but not limited to, the ever-popular Volkswagen Polo, the feisty Ford Fiesta and strong rivals from Korea in the form of the Hyundai i20 and Kia Rio.

And so, for this top-spec Elegance model featured here, Opel really has thrown the kitchen sink in here. In this video we'll take you over the specs and pricing of the new Opel Corsa in South Africa, as well as comfort and safety features, back seat space and boot (load) area.

We'll also dig into the more consumer-y angles of which one you should buy, the good old Opel Corsa vs Volkswagen Polo vs Ford Fiesta debate.
