The sixth generation of the Opel Astra recently received a warm hatch version in the form of the electrified GSe and predictably, German tuner Irmscher took notice. The Opel Astra GSe can now be fitted with a beefier bodykit alongside a selection of wheels and interior upholstery options. Irmscher had already presented a tuning kit for the regular Opel Astra, so it is no surprise that the GSe gets a similar treatment. The highlight is the new front splitter, which in combination with the side skirts and the rear bumper extension makes the Astra look like a proper hot hatch. At the back, there ..read more

Opel and Vauxhall have revealed their first fully electric compact hatchback and estate in the form of the new Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric.

Ford recently decided to pull out of the conventional European small hatchback market by announcing that the Fiesta’s almost 50-year run would come to an end in 2023. But Opel shows no signs of giving up on its own supermini, as these spy shots of a facelifted Corsa show. The sixth-generation Corsa was introduced in 2019 and shares a platform with sister brand Peugeot’s 208. Unfortunately for Opel (and its British equivalent, Vauxhall), Peugeot did a much better job with the crayons, and buyers gravitated towards the funkier-looking 208. While Peugeot’s supermini came second only to the Volks ..read more

The Rufford Mill Ford in Nottinghamshire, UK has become a hotspot for locals to test the water-fording abilities of their vehicles, attracting onlookers and millions of viewers online in recent months. The area in question is particularly prone to flooding and water at the ford can reach up to about 1.5 feet. While that’s not particularly deep for many off-roaders, it is far too deep for most passenger cars and has killed more than its fair share of engines. One YouTuber by the name of Tom Sunderland operates a YouTube channel where he films cars venturing through the Rufford Mill Ford. He ha ..read more

Opel and Vauxhall are expanding their electrified performance-focused range with the addition of the Grandland GSe next to the recently revealed Astra GSe. The new flagship trim of the C-SUV is not adding extra power over the standard AWD PHEV powertrain that delivers 296 hp (220 kW / 300 PS), but brings a sportier chassis setup for greater handling and minor visual tweaks to differentiate it from the rest of the lineup. The Grandland GSe communicates its athletic nature with a set of 19-inch wheels inspired by the Manta GSe concept, a new diffuser, and the GSe emblem on the tailgate. The bla ..read more
