“The verdict of the independent specialist journalists shows that with the Corsa we have created a future-oriented car for everyone.”
Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller
In September, the sixth generation celebrated its world premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt, now the small car bestseller has won the prestigious title of “Best Buy Car of Europe in 2020”. The AUTOBEST jury, made up of international journalists from 31 countries, chose the Opel newcomer as the winner and thus the car offering the most for the money. The experts confirmed this during conclusive test drives at the final in Istanbul. And with the Corsa-e, Opel offers an electric small car for everyone, which combines the practical Corsa qualities with CO2-free operation and an electric range of up to 337 kilometres (according to WLTP). At the same time, the award for the new Corsa completes an AUTOBEST hat- trick: no other model has been named “Best Buy Car of Europe” in three successive generations.
“We are very happy to receive this award,” said Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller. “The verdict of the independent specialist journalists shows that with the Opel Corsa we have created a future-oriented car for everyone. A car that is state-of-the-art, efficient, and well-equipped, with strong driving dynamics. At prices you can afford.” “Last year, at AUTOBEST we said that the next winner of Best Buy Car of Europe should be an electrified brilliant new product. It is exactly what happened, and the new Opel Corsa is a perfect example of electrification for the masses”, said Dan Vardie, AUTOBEST Founder & Chairman.
