Vauxhall releases prices for new Corsa

Vauxhall has released pricing for the new fourth-generation Corsa supermini, which made its debut at the Paris Motor Show today.

Fourth generation Corsa

The Luton-based marque has revealed that the new Corsa will be available to order from 8th October, with prices starting from just £8,995.

Compared with the previous-gen model, buyers can save up to £3,000 over the outgoing model, depending on trim level, and the Corsa now boasts a greater range of equipment than ever before.

Trim Levels

Nine trim grades are available, consisting of: Life, Sting, Sting R, Excite, Design, SRi, SRi VX-Line, SE and a special Limited Edition model.

Equipment

Standard equipment across the range will include a heated windscreen, tyre pressure monitoring system and hill start assist, plus six airbags, adjustable power steering and 14- or 15-inch wheels.

The Sting model adds cruise control and a leather steering wheel, plus LED daytime running lights and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. A sportier variant of the Sting, the Sting R comes with 16-inch black alloy wheels, sport pedals, plus a leather gear knob and chrome tailpipe extension.

Coming with even more equipment, the Corsa Excite offers air conditioning and 16-inch alloys, plus Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment system and heated front seats.

The Limited Edition model features larger 17-inch wheels, plus special sports suspension and sports seats, alongside much of the equipment featured in the Excite model.

Alongside that, the Design trim will add equipment including the IntelliLink system and LED daytime running lights, along with a range of aesthetic upgrades including body coloured door handles.

Front and rear parking sensors and a heated steering wheel are some of the inclusions on the SE trim, which also comes with 16-inch alloys and automatic rain-detecting wipers.

With 16-inch black alloy wheels and chrome detailing, the SRi model also features a trip computer, sports-style front seats and the same automatic wipers as in the SE model.

Finally, the further-enhanced SRi VX-Line adds larger 17-inch alloys, plus sports suspension and extra bodywork which includes a rear spoiler and a rear lower skirt.

Engines

Power will come courtesy of a range of engines, including a three-cylinder petrol ECOTEC engine, available with either 89bhp or 113bhp outputs.

Vauxhall claims this will take the Corsa from 0-62mph in just 10.4 seconds, with the lower-output model reportedly having a combined fuel consumption of 54.7mpg.

Other power options will include 1.2- and 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated petrol units available with 69bhp or 79bhp, plus two turbocharged 1.3-litre diesel engines with stop-start technology and outputs of either 74bhp or 94bhp.

Production of the new Corsa supermini will begin later this year, with first deliveries expected to start early in 2015.
