Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX in UK deal

Vauxhall has supplied the company with thirty five-door Corsas, all fitted with 1.3-litre CDTi engines. The cars all boast Start/Stop technology, which switched the engine off when the car is stationary in busy traffic to save fuel.

This, coupled with ultra-low rolling resistance tyres and some subtle aerodynamic changes, brings fuel economy up to 76.3mpg, one of the highest in the supermini segment.

It also means CO2 emissions are measured at 95g/km, making the Corsa exempt from emissions-based road tax and the London Congestion Charge from early next year.

For businesses, there is the added bonus of the cars falling into the lowest Benefit-in-Kind tax band for diesel cars.

Positive Outcomes’ Contracts Manager Paul Blackshaw said: "In addition to providing a safe, reliable and cost effective solution to assist and protect our employees travelling as part of their work, we wanted to reduce our carbon footprint and demonstrate an awareness of our employer responsibility to the environment.

The Nottingham-based company also took delivery of three 1.2-litre petrol Corsas matched to an Easytronic automatic gearbox.

The three petrol models came with chrome effect interior detailing, body-colour door handles and a CD player with MP3 format as standard, as well as 60:40 folding rear seats and steering wheel mounted audio controls.

The Corsa is a popular model for UK business, and has only been outsold by the Ford Fiesta in terms of both private and business sales in the UK supermini market.

Prices for the Vauxhall Corsa start from £9,995 on-the-road for three-door versions and £11,475 on-the-road for five-door models.
