As part of its 25th birthday celebrations, the Vauxhall Corsa range will see the return of the Corsa GSi name to the UK later this year.

The Corsa GSi takes the key chassis and design elements from the current Corsa VXR model using the sporty three-door body, with a raft of exterior design cues to set it apart from the regular car.

Large air intakes and a honeycomb grille dominate the front of the car, while deep sill extensions and carbon-trimmed features adorn its flanks. At the rear, a deep rear spoiler matches the extra bodywork to the front and sides, while a chrome tailpipe completes the look.

Inside, leather Recaro seats allow drivers to sit low in the car. A leather sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals continue the sporty theme. The GSi comes standard with Vauxhall’s IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Riding on 18-inch alloy wheels, the Corsa GSi takes its suspension and brakes – with red-painted calipers – from the current 210hp Corsa VXR. The firmer springs and dampers offer better control at high speeds, and improved grip in both wet and dry conditions.

More information about the new Vauxhall Corsa GSi will be available later in the year when order books open.
