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.
