Until the electric Corsa-e arrives, UK customers have a choice of two petrol engines and a sole diesel. The entry-level 1.2-litre PSA Group three-pot develops just 74bhp but, with the addition of a turbocharger, this increases to 99bhp. A more powerful petrol engine, with 129bhp, is available in markets other than ours, but this could make its way to the UK in the future.
In terms of trim levels, there’s a fairly dizzying selection to choose from: Vauxhall’s online configurator lists 11 different specifications. These start at entry-level SE and move up to our range-topping Ultimate Nav model.
The fifth-generation Corsa certainly represents a smarter, more refined, superficially classier and more desirable prospect than the car it replaces. Its new platform has brought more appealing styling and paved the way for a stronger range of powertrains and an impressive suite of active safety systems.
The majority of Vauxhall’s faithful customer base will be much more likely to notice what it has gained than what it has lost, of course, and will no doubt appreciate the more modern-feeling, premium-age supermini they find. But those who are inclined to stray to other showrooms won’t be given too many reasons to regret.
