Vauxhall Corsa revealed in Europe
The Vauxhall Corsa has officially broken cover in Europe after dozens of spy shots had been snapped over the last few weeks. Those spy shots didn't do this small car justice, introduced first as a hatchback in GM Europe's first official batch of shots. Developed alongside the already successful Fiat Punto, the Corsa is longer and wider than the car it replaces. A five-door hatch is also in the works that will resemble the recently redesigned Astra, the car upon which the next Saturn Ion will supposedly be based. The Corsa, however, will be getting a 1.0, 1.2 and 1.4-liter gas engine along with a 1.3 and 1.7-liter diesel. A performance variant tagged VXR with 195 bhp is also in the works.
