In-game descriptionEdit

"A compact masterpiece, packing the essence of a coupe into a minimum body size."

  • The Opel Tigra was sold as the Vauxhall Tigra in the UK.

Small yet charming, the Opel Tigra was a compact coupe produced by General Motors' German division and marketed in the U.K. under the Vauxhall banner. The Tigra stood out for its small dimension and quirky exterior styling that was somewhat reminiscent of Japan's kei cars.

The Tigra, based on the second generation Corsa, made its debut in 1993. It was designed by Opel's Japanese designer, Hideo Kodama, who also penned the Corsa. In Europe, the Tigra came with either a 1.4-liter or 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve inline-4. In Japan, only the 1.6-liter engine was offered. Output for the 1.4-liter was 89 HP, while the 1.6 produced 105 HP. The engines were mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or an electronically-controlled 4-speed automatic.

The 2+2 Tigra shared the same platform as the Corsa, with struts up front and a trailing arm setup at the rear. Stopping power came via ventilated discs up front and drums at the rear. The Opel exhibited good ride quality, and it was obvious that the Tigra was made for touring and not hot lapping a racetrack. That said, the car's body exhibited excellent rigidity and stiffness, especially noticeable when driving over bumps. The car's appeal was further enhanced by a 2-seat convertible with a fully-automated retractable hardtop, known as the Tigra Twin Top, introduced in 2004.
