Vehicle reviews :New Opel Corsa OPC: Fifth Generation Athletic Power

• Forceful: 1.6-litre turbo engine with 152 kW and 280 Nm

• Swift: Goes 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 230 km/h

• Sporty: Athletic body paired with a full performance package (tested on the Nürburgring)

• Coming Up: World-wide launch taking place early March at Geneva Motor Show

February 2015 - Rüsselsheim. From the challenging tracks of the world’s premier racing circuits to the back rounds of the city, the new generation Opel Corsa OPC is showing that it is able to adapt to every terrain without breaking a sweat. Now in its fifth generation, the new Corsa combines athletic finesses with practical comfort, ensuring a versatile car that handles its own in any driving situation. With a length of approximately four metres, and a 152kW, turbo-charged 1.6 litre, the car looks as good as it performs. For its international debut, the new Opel Corsa OPC will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show from March 5th to 15th.

After having the opportunity to test drive the car himself at the Dudenhofen Opel Test Centre, Opel Group CEO Dr Karl-Thomas Neumann stated, "Our OPC models are the dynamic spearheads of our car ranges. They reflect Opel's sporting tradition, epitomising German engineering, emotional design and distinctive driving dynamics. The new Corsa OPC impressively proves how high our engineers have set the bar in the sporty small car segment. It shows exactly what it is made of on winding mountainous roads and even on the racetrack, and it is so much fun that you do not want to get out of it. Typical OPC - simply pure passion."

OPC Design: Power & Beauty Combine

Known for its strong emphasis on design, the new Corsa follows the Opel OPC range standards, featuring a new Flash Blue paint job that is exclusive to OPC, as well as an enhanced front design with larger air intakes. The new model includes front features such as aluminium framed slots that sit beneath the headlights, reminiscent of the Astra OPC. In the front of the state-of-the-art hood there is a small scoop that fits in with the car’s sporty appeal, while on the sides, bold trims further enhance the look of the car.

At the rear, the car’s sportiness continues to shine. A spoiler that is fitted to the trunk lid offers two options – a simpler rear spoiler and a more elaborate spoiler that gives extra down-force on the back axle. Acoustic and visual balance is offered through the double pipe Remus exhaust, which has diffuser on the tailpipes.

The interior boasts Recaro performance seats that are designed to give side support even on the toughest corner turns, along with bottom flattened steering wheel finished in leather, OPC gear knob, race style pedals and OPC elements that are seen in the instrument panel on the dashboard.

Make no mistake though – this car is not all business. Connectivity provides through IntelliLink infotainment system (offered as an option), as well as iOS and Android smartphone support help to ensure that drivers are never out of range while in their vehicles.

1.6 Turbo ECOTEC: 152 kW and up to 280 Nm

Underneath the hood of the new Corsa, the standard Opel 1.6 litre, turbocharged fuel engine is tucked away, boasting 152 kW plus a maximum torque of 245 Nm between 1 900 and 5 800 rpm (an additional 35 Nm is provided through the overboost feature too). Setting the standard over previous models (including the world-class Nürburgring Edition), a quicker torque build-up and longer torque plateau ensure that the car is even more responsive on lower speeds.

Power is delivered to the front located wheels with the aid of a six-speed transmission. The new Corsa OPC can easily reach up to 100km per hour from stand-still in just 6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 230km per hour. It is not too heavy on fuel either, sitting at 7.5-litres per 100 km on the combined cycle (174 g per km CO2 emission).

FSD Sports Chassis for Maximum Frequency Handling

By partnering with exerts from Koni, Opel engineers managed to achieve a formidable chassis that has innovative damping and optimal power efficiency. Features such as Updated Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) enable frequencies to be handled optimally, hitting a sweet spot between powerful and smooth.

Further calibrations on chassis components help to improve overall performance, with the new generation Corsa sitting 10mm closer to the road than previous models. Brand spanking new electronic controls meanwhile offer modes that enhance electronic stability (ESP) and traction control (TC). Choosing Competition Mode for example makes TC inactive, while choosing ESP gives a longer leash. This means that experienced and skilled drivers can omit ESP if they want to put the car to the test on the track.

Additional enhancements include improved steering for better reaction and feedback, improved road grip (thanks to standard 215/45 R17 Michelin performance tyres) and an enhanced brake system that has front axle 308mm brake discs.

Performance Package: Racing Abilities and Smooth Handling

Ideal for drivers who want a vehicle equipped to handle both race tracks and regular roads, the Corsa OPC Performance Package has been crafted by engineers. It comes with a fitted mechanical Drexler multi-disc differential lock, state-of-the-art chassis, 18 inch wheels, stickier Michelin tyres and a high performance Brembo brake system with 330mm front axle brake discs for extra deceleration.

The new Corsa OPC has been thoroughly tested on some of the world’s most challenging tracks, including Nürburgring Nordschleife. It launches in South Africa in the latter part of 2015.

Industry news :Chevrolet Recognised in Car Magazine’s Top 12 Best Buys 2015

Popular car brand Chevrolet was recognised at the Car Magazine Top 12 Best Buys 2015 awards that were recently held at the Bryanston Country Club in Johannesburg, showing that this world-class car shows no sign of losing its appeal.

As the winner in the ‘Budget Car (under R145 000)’ category, the Chevrolet Spark Campus went up against some serious competition to gain first place in this often-competitive category. In the ‘Value SUV’ category meanwhile, the Chevrolet Trailblazer took first place, while the Chevrolet Utility beat Nissan’s NP200 to claim the ‘Best ¾ Bakkie’ award. Car Magazine cited the car’s “overall sophistication and five-year / 120 000 km warranty” among the reasons for its win, compared to the Nissan NP200 warranty of six-years / 150 000km.

Along with Chevrolet and its many wins during the award, special mention was given to Opel as a ‘Company to Watch’, with mention of the renewed efforts by General Motors through the Adam and Mokka cars that showed promise.

While the world continues to see proof of the highly competitive, quality manufacturing and innovation in General Motors’ range of car brands, these latest accolades should soon be seen on the ground as dealers notice a steady increase in the sale of these popular car brands.

Vehicle Reviews: Isuzu launches the brand new SERENGETI Limited Edition

It gives us great pleasure to announce the introduction of the Isuzu KB SERENGETI Edition based on the KB 300 LX double cab.

Isuzu’s legendary heritage of toughness, reliability and individuality is well known in the world of bakkies. It is to celebrate this heritage, that Isuzu introduces the Limited Edition SERENGETI.

MYSTICAL WILDNESS

If ever there was a place which summed up the mystical wildness of Africa, in all its natural glory, that place would have to be the Serengeti. Home to the majestic Maasai people and to teeming herds of wildlife, it is perhaps best known for the migration in which over a million wildebeest and zebra flow across the plains in search of water and grazing. It is a journey in which they must overcome the most rugged terrain and impassable obstacles, in order to reach their goal. In the spirit of this remarkable story, Isuzu has created the brand new Isuzu SERENGETI. Based on the flagship KB 300 LX, but also boasting an array of unique chrome- and silver-trim extras, SERENGETI is as at home parked outside your favourite restaurant, as it is bossing the wildest off-road terrain on a weekend adventure.

The SERENGETI Edition will be based of the M12.5 model range of LX Crew Cab leather models

Community Involvement :Prime Circle meets the #OpelADAM

In December we invited our fans on Facebook and Twitter to enter a competition to tell us what they loved the most about the Opel ADAM. In return, we were giving away tickets to see the legendary Prime Circle perform live at Kirstenbosch in January.'

The competition took off and after seeing the response to the ADAM, the guys from Prime Circle were asking what’s all the fuss about the ADAM? So we decided to show them! Although the Opel ADAM wasn’t available to the market we managed to secure an ADAM Glam & ADAM Jam for the lads to test drive and hear what the boys had to say. We tracked their journey on Twitter, and to say the least, we think they were pleasantly surprised.

They started their journey in Cape Town in an Opel Corsa, and we think they were most impressed with the boot space! Check out the luggage that fits into our Opel Corsa!!

And from there, their journey started with the ADAM….
