Vauxhall’s best-selling model, the Corsa supermini, is getting a minor cosmetic facelift for deliveries from March next year. A chrome “signature bar” with Vauxhall’s new Griffin badge design replaces the current “V” grille, bringing the Corsa in line with the latest Astra, Meriva and Insignia. Other changes for the facelift include the availability of five ominous sounding new colours (Lime Green pearlescent, Chilli Orange, Guacamole, Sunny Melon and Pepperdust metallic).
The new 2010 model year Vauxhall Corsa has been nipped and tucked, tweaked and polished to produce an impressive average 13% fuel saving across the range. Five out of the six Corsa engines now produce less than 125g/km and the 2010 Corsa Ecoflex diesel now manages up to 76.3mpg.
Inside, it gets the latest multimedia ‘Touch and Connect’ technology, a pointer to the equipment that will be the centrepiece of Vauxhall’s 2013 Junior city car. Based around a five-inch touch-screen display, it controls sat-nav, CD/tuner, aux-in, USB and Bluetooth phone connectivity.
Despite all the changes, Vauxhall says prices have risen by the equivalent of £60-£75, once the new January 2011 20% VAT rate is factored in. Read on to find out more details of the flash new 2011 Vauxhall Corsa range.
