Every Vauxhall Corsa model except the Corsa VXR now has lower emissions and improved fuel economy and Vauxhall has also added more standard equipment. The updated ecoFLEX version turns in an impressive 76.3mpg, along with 117g/km of carbon dioxide emissions to qualify for low-rate road tax. The 1.0-litre now produces 65PS (up 5PS), yet emits just 117g of CO2, dropping it two VED bands and meaning that owners now pay just £35 per year in road tax, down from £120, and none at all from next April.
The previous Vauxhall Corsa Life model now becomes the Vauxhall Corsa S, while Club changes to Vauxhall Corsa Exclusiv and Design becomes the Vauxhall Corsa SE. The SXi and SRi variants remain in the line-up.
Completing the package of changes to Vauxhall’s biggest selling car is a long list of features which have now been added as standard to key models in the range. The SE, SXi and SRi now get cruise control and an on-board computer at no extra charge, while the SRi which now starts at a lower price point also gets revised suspension settings, air conditioning, 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, and a VXR styling kit included in its price.
Prices start at £10,283 for the three-door Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX S going up to £17,155 for the Vauxhall Corsa VXR hot hatch.
