Vauxhall has revealed pricing and specifications for its all-new 2020 Vauxhall Corsa, entering its fifth UK generation.
Introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the Nova, the Corsa has come on to become a favourite on our shores — and the latest model is set to reach showrooms in January 2020.
The current fouth-generation Corsa holds an Expert Rating of 63% on The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, which compiles ratings from 15 of the top UK automotive websites. This is well off the pace of the class leaders, so Vauxhall dealers will be eager for the new Corsa to take the fight to the ever-dominant Ford Fiesta.
Opening the range at £15,550 on-road is the entry-level SE model, with standard equipment here including 16-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a flat-bottomed leather steering wheel and LED headlights with daytime running lights.
Upgrading to SRi adds a comprehensive level of kit, such as LED front fog lamps, tinted rear windows, an exterior styling pack, a black roof, alloy pedals, LED taillights, a chrome-tipped exhaust, rear parking sensors and a selectable ‘Sport’ drive mode. SRi models are priced from £18,700.
Following that, Elite Nav brings satellite navigation, electric folding door mirrors, leather-effect upholstery, a panoramic rear-view camera, front parking sensors and ambient LED lighting to the car plus both Vauxhall’s ‘Sight & Light’ and ‘Winter’ option packs. Elite Nav models command an asking price from £18,990.
Sitting at the top of the range is Ultimate Nav, available from £25,990. This brings 17-inch diamond-cut alloys, a ten-inch touchscreen infotainment system, leather massaging seats, IntelliLux LED headlights, keyless entry, electronic climate control and the firm’s ‘Radar’ pack.
Two petrol engines are available for the supermini — a three-cylinder 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit producing 75hp and a turbocharged unit of equal capacity developing 100hp — while a sole 102hp diesel is available too.
Pricing has yet to be confirmed for the all-electric e-Corsa, though expect it to command a price higher than any of its internal combustion-engined counterparts.
Order books for the new 2020 Vauxhall Corsa are now open, with first deliveries expected in January 2020.
