New Vauxhall Corsa range includes new engines and technology

Vauxhall has announced further technical details on its all-new Corsa.

The engine line-up includes a brand new. 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo petrol.

Meeting the latest stringent Euro 6 emissions regulations, the ECOTEC will be available with either 90PS or 115PS outputs, each of which achieves 170Nm of torque from just 1,800rpm.

The 90PS-powered three-door 1.0-litre version consumes just 54.7mpg on the combined cycle. There are also Euro 6 compliant 1.2 and 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated units with 70PS and 90PS.

Revised and refined  Euro 6 compliant 1.3 CDTi engines with 75PS and 95PS expand the Corsa offer on the diesel side. New-generation turbo chargers ensure smooth driving and acceleration at low engine speeds with minimal noise generation. Both versions come with fuel-saving Start/Stop technology fitted as standard.

The 95PS diesel paired with 5-speed manual transmission and braking energy recuperation system – can reduce the three-door model‘s CO2 emissions down to 85g/km and fuel consumption down to 87.8mpg in the combined cycle.

Pricing will be announced on 2nd October with first models going in to production later this year.

    Is not really a new car is it? I can still see many elements of the previous car and according to some reviews, its being called heavy facelift. I personally believe Vauxhall missed the chance of moving ahead of Ford and VW. The "new" Corsa appears at this stage no much better or advance against the current Fiesta. Why not do what Peugeot did with the 308, where the improvements vs the old are so many you cant count. Poor effort from Vauxhall, just hope the new Astra will be better
