All-new Vauxhall Corsa line-up bolstered with petrol and diesel power

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Vauxhall has revealed details of petrol and diesel powertrains for its all-new Vauxhall Corsa, following on from the reveal of the all-electric Corsa-e last month.

From launch, two petrol units and one diesel will be offered for the supermini. Kicking off the former’s range is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit producing 75hp that’s sent through a five-speed manual gearbox.

Up next is a 100hp turbocharged unit of equal capacity, lifted straight from French owner PSA Group’s catalogue, coupled to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. As for the sole diesel, that’s a 1.5-litre unit developing 100hp and 250Nm of torque.

These internal combustion engines join the all-electric e-Corsa in the range, which features a 50kWh battery. Range is claimed at 211 miles, with charging from flat to 80% said to take just 30 minutes on a rapid unit.

The new Corsa is the first model designed from the ground-up under Vauxhall’s PSA Group ownership, after it purchased the British firm (along with sister brand Opel) in 2017. It’s said to weigh 980kg — up to 108kg less than the previous car — despite retaining similar dimensions

Full specifications for the Corsa are yet to be confirmed, but Vauxhall has said equipment will include full LED headlights, Vauxhall Connect services and a ten-inch infotainment screen. There’s no official word yet on the arrival date for the new Vauxhall Corsa, but we expect it to be in early 2020.
