The next generation of Corsa was officially unveiled by Vauxhall at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
Due to arrive in showrooms later this year, but able to order now, the new Corsa is set to raise the benchmark for driveability, comfort and practicality for models within its class.
The new Corsa shares almost the exact same dimensions as its predecessor on the outside, with the inside taking advantage of the clever use of cabin space the Corsa is known for.
Changes begin with the design. All of the car’s body panels have been changed with a new modern up to date style, providing greater definition between the sporty looks of the three-door models and the more premium looks of the five-door models.
The focus shifts to the interior, which sees the new Corsa’s cabin unrecognisable from its predecessor. The re-designed instrument panel and dashboard greatly improves on the level of functionality, highlighted by Vauxhall’s sophisticated IntelliLink system.
Under the bonnet, new engines and transmissions will be available from launch. Leading the charge from Vauxhall’s new powertrain offensive is the 1.0-litre three-cylinder ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo petrol engine, alongside a much improved 1.3 CDTi diesel engine, which meets Euro-6 regulations.
New engines will be complimented by the re-designed chassis, with no components carried over from the previous model. Emphasis on exceptional rolling refinement, ride quality, precise handling and stability push the driveability to class-leading standards.
