The Vauxhall Corsa is now even more economical and environmentally friendly. The three-door Corsa 95PS 1.3CDTI ecoFLEX Start/Stop now achieves 85.6mpg while emitting just 88g/km the five-door achieves 83.1mpg /89g/km CO2. This is a 2.4mpg and a 6g/km improvement over the 2011 Corsa 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX (80.7mpg /94g/km).
Mike Ableson, Vice President Engineering at Opel/Vauxhall said 'In just five years, from the first Corsa ecoFLEX to today, we have been able to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions by 26%, while at the same time increasing performance by over 26%.
'Our customers appreciate this, as does the environment.'
Performance has not been compromised, the 95PS Corsa is capable of 0-62mph in 12.3 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 109mph. Opel/Vauxhall engineers also optimised the chassis for all Corsa variants (except the VXR Nürburgring Edition). The suspension and damper system now provides improved ride comfort, especially on rough roads and in urban areas at low speeds.
Vauxhall also offer unique Lifetime Warranty which provides first owners with the reassurance of comprehensive cover for the life of their car, or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
