Opel has a long tradition of manufacturing people cars for the price conscious and Opel Corsa is one of the best-selling models from the brand. It is a front wheel drive, compact car that was first introduced in 1982 and then as a competitor to Volkswagen Golf among others which also has similar exterior dimensions and features. The engines at this time up to the early 1990s were almost all gasoline driven from 1 liter in cylinder volume up to 1.5 liters. Since then, another five generations of Opel Corsa have been added and the most common for sale in the Swedish used market today is almost exclusively from the last two or three - Corsa D and Corsa E. The fourth generation, called internally for "D", is a small car sharing platform with Alfa Romeo Mito, among others. During this era, diesel engines became increasingly popular in the European market and most are equipped with a 1.3-liter engine. Nearly equally popular are the smaller petrol engines and perhaps in particular the 1.2-liter engine which gives a mixed consumption of about 0.5 liters per mile which was very low in the mid-2000s, even for this class of small cars. The step to Opel Corsa in its fifth generation, manufactured from 2014-2019, is big and the interior has been greatly improved with greater focus on detail quality. Automatic boxes started to become more common for this generation and many copies are equipped with an efficient 6-speed automatic gearbox (still 5-speed automatic gearboxes were common in small cars at the time around 2014) which gives low consumption.
