BRIGHT-EYED: GMSA has its eye set on the younger, youthful crowd with its gregarious new Corsa Colour Edition.

The little Opel Corsa gets an attitude update in the form of the Corsa Colour Edition with an eye-popping palette and snazzy little details.

The newcomer is based on the three-door 1.4 Sport and replaces that model in the range.

But unlike the erstwhile 1.4 Sport, the Colour Edition comes with a range of five crazy colours – how do Sunny Melon, Magma Red or Oriental Blue strike you? – that are carried across to the interior.

While more low-key individuals could opt for the basic Sapphire Black or simple Casablanca White paint finishes, Colour Edition is further distinguished by its glossy black roof and tinted windows.

Inside the cabin, colour highlights mimic the car’s exterior colour and vent surrounds and seat stitching, for example, are finished in the corresponding colour.

Front sport seats and alloy pedals complete the look, along with a choice of black or silver 17-inch alloy wheels.

Beneath the metal, power continues to be sourced from a 16-valve 1.4-litre engine with 74kW and 130Nm on tap at 6000 and 4000r/min, respectively.

All other 1.4 Sport attributes, such as a sports chassis, ABS with EBD, radio/CD audio system with MP3 compatibility, remote central locking and air conditioner, are standard.

The 1.4 Colour Edition three-door costs R180 750. According to the last GMSA price list, the 1.4 Sport cost R192 350 at the time it was phased out.
