Vauxhall Releases A Corsa With A Dark Side.
OK, maybe this won’t seem that dark, but Vauxhall have just released details of their new “Black Edition” Corsa, which comes with a 1.4 Turbo engine, making it one of the pokiest Corsa’s you can buy.
The 120ps stop/start engine will see the Corsa do the 0-62 mph run in 9.7 seconds and top out at 121mph. OK, its maybe not a pocket rocket, but its fuel consumption of 51.4mpg combined and CO2 as low as 129g/km, it’s a pretty fair compromise.
Initially available in a limited production run of 500 units, in both 3- and 5-door body styles, the Black Edition is based on the Corsa Limited Edition and along with the 120PS engine gains a black logo bar and a new 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.
A raft of sporty styling features including body-coloured front lower spoiler, side sills, rear lower skirt and rear spoiler turn the Black Edition into one of the sleekest Corsas yet. Its looks are enhanced still further with front fog lights, dark style headlights and tail lights and dark tinted rear- and rear side windows.
Inside, sports seats, a leather-covered steering wheel, sports pedals, silver interior seat stitching and matt chrome air vent surrounds set the Black Edition apart from all other Corsas.
For those who wish to go even further up market, there is a broad range of innovative extras not offered by competitors such as the Touch and Connect infotainment system, climate control and adaptive forward lighting.
The Corsa Black Edition is on sale now priced at £15,995 for the 3-door and £16,425 for the 5-door model.
