New Opel Corsa GSi: Powerful Performance and Subtle Sportiness

* 150 PS turbo gasoline engine available for three and five-door models

* Legendary GSi concept receives a modern update

Saturn needs this car now , not the next gen . The Corsa would probably one if not the best of the mini cars in the US . IT defintely looks worlds better than the fit , versa , yaris or aveo .
