The next generation of the Opel Corsa has been spied testing on public roads in the five-door guise.

The next generation of the Opel Corsa has been spied testing on public roads in the five-door guise.

Saying the current generation of the Corsa is in need of a replacement would be an understatement as the model is the oldest in its segment and must receive a successor as soon as possible to maintain its competitiveness. Spotted here is a heavily camouflaged prototype which hides most of the design but we still notice the front fascia will be derived from the Adam while at the back it will borrow some styling cues from the Meriva.

Other details are not known at this moment but it's safe to say the interior cabin will be revamped while under the hood it will get some of Opel's new engines, such as the 3-cylinder 1.0-liter SIDI Turbo offered with 90 PS (66 kW) and 115 PS (85 kW).

The German marque could decide to show the new Corsa in October at the Paris Motor Show. If not, expect to see it next March at the Geneva Motor Show.
