The All New Refreshing Vauxhall Corsa Is Set To Woo UK’s Car Lovers
Vauxhall Motors has been bringing classy automobiles to the UK for years. With its attention to detail and an aim to please its customers always, there
is nothing that can keep Vauxhall from bringing forth impressive designs and models to woo car lovers. With the latest Corsa up its sleeve, VW will
soon get UK to fall head over heels in love with its creation.
The new Vauxhall Corsa outshines it’s siblings by using some of their key features, and yet being able to stand out with its bold and unique new design,
equipment and chassis.
Vauxhall’s ‘small car’ brand manager Ian Mitchell explains that they have retained what people loved about the precursor – the dimensions and shape of the
automobile; and changed what they could improve upon – the ride quality, handling and interior features.
Vauxhall’s latest generation automobile, Corsa, has a low and lean grille upfront with the brand bar taking its place significantly across it. Its
headlights are inspired by the Adam and the rear lights are 3D clusters. The shoulders of the car are more prominent and sharper compared to the current
Interiors That Will Drive You Crazy
Vauxhall’s Intellilink Infotainment System is something worth talking about. Equipped with a seven inch, colour touch screen that lets you work with apps
just like your smart phone does, it incorporates internet radio, satellite-navigation, and can even work with Apple’s Siri.
It has Bluetooth connectivity and voice control too. The system is able to sync with and adapt to both Apple and Android devices. The Flex-dock mobile
phone holder holds, charges and connects your phone to the Intellilink Infotainment System.
The boot of the car has a 285-litre space. The instrument panel and dashboard of the car are completely new and resemble nothing you’ve seen in a Vauxhall
model before. The lighting and the extravagant room inside the car lets it outshine the current version remarkably.
The framework of the Corsa boasts of a lower centre of gravity, and its suspension structure is now stiffer. It is designed particularly with the UK’s road
requirements in mind. The new speed-sensitive electric steering system allows for a comfortable drive, when coupled with the Corsa’s suspension features.
What Drives the New Vauxhall Corsa?
The fourth generation Corsa inhabits a turbocharged 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol engine. What’s more, it adheres to the Euro 6 regulations for
emissions; the regulations will be implemented later this year. A choice of two power outputs, the 89bhp and the 113bhp is available for buyers; the latter
produces 125 lb/ft of torque.
Other engine options include the 1.2 and 1.4 litre petrol engines, and an upgraded version of the company’s turbocharged 1.4 litre four cylinder petrol
engine. You can own the Corsa with either a six speed manual or a six speed automatic gearbox.
The very first ones among the new Vauxhall Corsas are expected to arrive in the UK towards the end of this year. However, the prices, albeit not confirmed
as yet, are likely to be a little over the current model prices and should start at about £ 10,500.
