The all-new model sits on a platform provided by Vauxhall’s French owners – PSA Groupe – which allows the model to be offered with electric powertrains, alongside petrol and diesel engines.
Highlights of the new look include a completely redesigned look, a significant weight loss over the outgoing car and new safety aids.
The manufacturer announced prices for its Corsa-e EV a few weeks ago, but now it’s the turn of the petrol and diesel models. Engines available include an entry-level 74bhp 1.2-litre unit, followed by a turbocharged 99bhp 1.2-litre petrol unit. A 101bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine is also offered.
Prices start from £15,550 and rise to £25,990 for a range-topping model. Four trim levels are offered on the new Corsa – SE, SRi, Elite Nav and Ultimate.
Standard equipment on the SE includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen and LED headlights. The SRi adds rear parking sensors, a sportier styling pack, a Sport drive mode and an alarm.See Available Corsa deals
Up next is the Elite Nav, which features ambient LED lighting, front parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers and a reversing camera.
Sitting at the top of the range is the Ultimate. On top of Elite Nav, this gains matrix LED lights, a larger 10-inch touchscreen, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, keyless entry and start and automatic climate control.
The new Corsa is available to order now, with first deliveries expected in January 2020.
