Prices start from £8,995, up to £3,000 less than the equivalent outgoing model. The range has been slimmed down slightly from ten trim levels to nine.
All models come with remote central locking, front electric windows and hill start assist as standard.
Vauxhall‘s new 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged engine in 89bhp and 113bhp forms is available on on all but the base-spec Life version.
Three- and five-door bodies are available. The range runs up to just short of £16,000 for the 94bhp diesel SRi VX-Line 5-door.
Vauxhall Chairman and Managing Director, Tim Tozer, said: “The all-new Corsa range offers the perfect combination of refreshed design, class-leading specification, vastly improved driving dynamics and cutting-edge powertrain technology.”
Vauxhall is also promising significantly better quality, particularly for the interior materials.
