Vauxhall unveils new Corsa

Vauxhall Corsa fans will be in their element this week, as the brand has finally unveiled pictures and specifications for the brand new fifth-generation design.

The vehicle has been fully updated with a range of new features, including high-efficiency petrol and diesel powertrains to ensure every variant emits less carbon dioxide than the most efficient Corsas currently on offer.

Included in the engine line-up is an entry-level 1.2-litre petrol unit and a three-cylinder, direct-injection, turbocharged 1.2-litre all-aluminium powertrain. These are joined by a 1.5-litre diesel offering 100PS and 250Nm maximum torque.

Corsas are renowned for their safety features and this generation is no different. Drivers will benefit from numerous assistance systems, including front collision warning, automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, as well as intelligent speed control, lane keep assist and traffic sign recognition.

Inside, there's a state-of-the-art infotainment system with multimedia radio, navigation with real-time traffic information on a seven-inch touchscreen and a direct link to breakdown assistance and the emergency services.

This Corsa will also be the first in its class to feature Vauxhall's adaptive, glare-free headlights, previously debuted on the Astra and Insignia and usually only found on premium cars.

There's no information on pricing yet and delivery dates are simply listed as 'next April', so just keep your eyes peeled if you're on the lookout for new car deals on this model.

Last month, Vauxhall unveiled its first ever all-electric Corsa, the Corsa-e, as part of its mission to drive down emissions across its range.

Corsa has been Vauxhall's best-selling car for some time, having shifted more than 2.1 million vehicles in the UK since its launch back in 1993.
