Opel, the parent company of Vauxhall, has signalled an intention to launch 27 new vehicles and 17 new engines throughout Europe over the next four years. The bold move is a confident step forward in increasing market shares for both Vauxhall and Opel as a whole by 2022. It's a ten-year process which began in 2012 with the introduction of the full-production ADAM supermini. If the manufacturer's plan is successful, Vauxhall would move into second place amongst the top-selling carmakers in the UK.
A new-generation Corsa will be one of the first of the 27 models, arriving here for the 2015 model year. It develops both the underlying model architecture and platform, and arrived with a new 1.0-litre engine that can be optionally turbocharged. With the increase in power, the Corsa will now be capable of 113bhp. A slew of other power systems are scheduled to debut, as are the new Vivaro van and the ADAM Rocks.
The next-generation Astra is expected in 2016, with a more premium look and feel inspired by rival Audi vehicles. Technology will also be a renewed priority for Opel, as evidenced by the unveiling of the OnStar connected service. The system could appear next year, and transforms cars fitted with the service into mobile Wi-Fi hotspots.
