Vauxhall Announces Corsa Blue Edition
It costs £19,425, including 20% VAT, and comes with more kit compared to the standard VXR, as well as unique styling changes.
It also comes with what Vauxhall UK says is ‘a head-turning paintjob, at a price that’ll send its rivals into a spin’.
The colour is very impressive, but the main feature is definitely the price; it costs less than both the Citroën DS3 R and the Mini Cooper Works, with prices starting at £23,100 and £22,320 respectively.
As mentioned before, it comes with more kit for your money with the ‘head turning’ Arden Blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloys, dark-tinted glass, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats all included as standard, a saving of £445 over the normal car with these options.
It will be powered by the same 1.6 Turbo as the standard car, producing 192 bhp and 260 Nm of torque, with an optional overboost feature, giving it a 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds and a top speed on the exciting side of 140 mph.
Also included is lower sports suspension, uprated brakes and switchable Electronic Stability Programme.
Orders are already being taken but deliveries will not start until late February.
