Said to be as easy to use as a conventional automatic, it is more efficient, weighs less and costs less than half the price of a normal four-speed automatic. In automatic mode, it uses slightly less fuel than the same model with a conventional manual gearbox. The Corsa 1.2 16v returns 44.9mpg in automatic mode and 43.5 mpg as a manual. Prices have yet to be announced but four-speed automatic transmission in the Corsa is presently a £900 option.
