New Vauxhall Corsa arrives in March

The new Vauxhall Corsa has been given a new exterior, including an updated grille and new headlamps along with an updated interior.

New exterior colours include Lime Green, Chilli Orange and Guacamole, joining more traditional colours in the Corsa line up.

In a similar upgrade to the latest generation Astra hatchback, the new Corsa will boast higher quality materials inside, including new upholstery, to bring it closer in line with key rivals such as the Ford Fiesta.

A new chassis promises to improve driving dynamics and handling and new engines will bring down the cost of running the supermini.

In total, eight models will be available with CO2 emissions under 100g/km thanks to new ecoFLEX diesel engines.

This means the models will be eligible for free road tax in the UK and London-based drivers will be exempt from the congestion charge.

The introduction of an updated Corsa will coincide with the release of the Antara SUV, new high-performance VXR8 and a new specification for the Astra in the shape of the £18,110 Astra ES Tech.

All four of the new Vauxhall models will be available from March with the new 11 registration plates.
