Vauxhall Corsa (2014–2019)

Model History

July 2014

Vauxhall reveals fourth generation Corsa

Almost every element of the Corsa’s generous cabin is completely new, including a completely re-designed instrument panel and dashboard, and greatly improved levels of functionality.

Under the bonnet, new engines and transmissions will be available from launch. A 1.0-litre, three-cylinder ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo is available, while there's a much-improved 1.3 CDTi.

All engines: 1.0, 1.2. 1.3 diesel and 1.4 are now timing chain.

A completely re-designed chassis underpins the new Corsa, with no carry-over components from the current model and all-new suspension components.

The new car has a lower centre of gravity, aiding stability and roll characteristics, while a reinforced, stiffer front sub-frame and new front suspension geometry is designed to give more taut and precise handling.

New speed-sensitive electric power steering – which incorporates a City mode for low-speed manoeuvring and parking – receives a specific UK setting. Improvements have also been made to damper characteristics, for both Comfort and Sport set ups. The new car’s rear suspension has also been re-tuned to allow better straight-line and cornering stability.

New engines include the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder Ecotec Direct Injection Turbo petrol. It is available with either 90PS or 115PS, each of which has 170Nm of torque from 1,800rpm. A new version of Vauxhall’s 1.4 turbo engine is also available. Designed for maximum fuel efficiency, but with strong mid-range performance, the new unit produces 100PS and 200Nm of torque. Two naturally-aspirated petrol engines – a 1.2- and a 1.4-litre – have been revised. Significant improvements to the current Corsa’s 1.3 CDTi diesel engine have been made to bring it up to Euro 6 emissions standards for the new model.

Two new six-speed gearboxes – a manual and an automatic – are available with improved shift quality and providing greater overall efficiency.

While the basic dimensions of the New Corsa’s cabin remain largely the same, almost everything that sits in it has been re-designed. There's a new control centre in the newly-designed instrument panel, which is themed around horizontal lines.

The Corsa E is available with heated front seats, steering wheel and windscreen, as well as soft-tone ambient lighting and a full-size panoramic roof, taking the car’s equipment levels into the premium segment of its class.
