New Corsa VXR previewed at this year's Geneva Motor Show

The New Corsa VXR – Vauxhall's ultra-powerful hot-hatch – is set to raise the bar for small, fast hatchbacks when it appears in UK showrooms in May 2015.​​

With a fierce acceleration of 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 143mph, New Corsa VXR delivers 205PS and up to 280Nm from its powerful 1.6-litre turbocharged engine.

NEW KONI FSD TECHNOLOGY

Vauxhall has teamed with damper-supplier, Koni, to develop new Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) for the New Corsa VXR - so body control is maintained at high speed, while ride quality is optimised at lower speeds.

The steering has also been refined, making it more direct and precise, with improved feedback through the wheel.

EYE-CATCHING PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN

A rear spoiler to provide downforce, twin Remus exhaust pipes, and six exterior colour options – including Flash Blue, unique to Corsa VXR – make this one eye-catching hot-hatch.

Inside, the cabin features standard Recaro seats, a leather, flat-bottomed steering wheel and sports pedals, plus a VXR gear-lever and instruments. A heated windscreen and IntelliLink connectivity for Apple iOS and Android smartphones are also standard.
