Revised Vauxhall Corsa Rolled Out

The fierce competition in the British small car market is forcing automakers to upgrade their models every once in a while, especially in an attempt to remain competitive and lure more buyers into their cars. The last one to do so is Vauxhall who recently presented a revised Corsa that is projected to go on sale in the country in April.

At the first glance, the car seems the same as the currently on sale version because Vauxhall brought no modifications to the exterior or interior. However, the upgraded Corsa range is much more environmentally friendly, with an average mpg increase of 13.2 percent.

According to, five of the six engines in the lineup release less than 125 grams of CO2 every kilometer when mated to a manual transmission.

Specifically, the 1.3-liter Ecoflex model that produces 94 bhp achieves a fuel consumption rating of 76.3 mpg (3 l/100km) in combined cycle and 88.3 mpg (2.6 l/100km) in extra-urban conditions. Additionally, the smallest-displacement engine of the range, the 1.0-liter petrol unit, generates 64 horsepower while releasing 117 grams of CO2 every kilometer.

Vauxhall also upgraded the trim levels. The Life version is now sold as S, while the Club is marketed as Exclusiv. Design has been renamed to SE while SXi and SRi are keeping their names untouched, according to the aforementioned source.

The SE version will be equipped with a heated leather steering wheel and heated front seats while the SRi comprises 17-inch alloy wheels, upgraded suspension and VXR bodykit as standard.

Pricing for the upgraded Corsa will begin at 10,285 pounds (approximately $17,200).
