Vauxhall Corsa VXR 1.6i Turbo 0% Finance

Vauxhall Corsa VXR 1.6i Turbo Flexible Finance Calculator

Quick! Quick! The Vauxhall Corsa VXR 1.6i Turbo is racing-off the forecourt via a 0% interest finance plan. And guess what? The terms can be tweaked (very quickly) to suit the motorist's circumstances. As such, he/she can influence the size of the deposit, the monthly payments and the length of the contract via a flexible finance calculator. The manufacturer will also contribute £750 toward the down-payment. If the motorist does not increase this sum – and purchases over twenty-four months – the regular payments are £760.21 at 0% APR (representative). This totals £18,995 including the manufacturer’s £750. The buyer could, however, make smaller instalments over any number of months up to sixty so the payments could fall to £304.09. Plus, if the customer increases the deposit to (say) £5,000 this further – and quickly - shrinks the instalments over sixty months to £233.25. Significantly, however the finance terms are set the total outlay is the same and the motorist owns the car at the end of the contract. This supermini is also available via a personal lease arrangement. Terms include the £1,971 deposit that precedes thirty-six monthly payments of £219. This totals £9,855 including three years road tax, breakdown/servicing. At the end of the term the car must be returned 'quickly'.

Vauxhall Corsa VXR 1.6i Turbo Review

The Vauxhall Corsa VXR 1.6i Turbo quickly makes its strengths apparent. For starters, it produces 192PS and races to 62mph in 7.2 seconds. That is fast – as it its 140mph top speed. This hot-hatch also has lively handling and properly weighted steering to further speed-up its occupant's heart rate. These characteristics complement the striking styling that includes a honeycomb grill, roof spoiler and side sills that make it look purposeful. The interior, in contrast, benefits from a flat-bottomed steering wheel and sports peddles. It has half leather seats too. This workhorse also inherits the traditional Corsa qualities such as the spacious cabin and class competitive 285-litre boot. The latter can be increased to 1,050-litres by folding the rear seats flat. Standard toys include: multiple air-bags, cruise control, air-conditioning, electric mirrors and front fog lights so the specification is fair. The only niggle is running costs. Why? Because its powerful petrol engine only averages 38.7mpg which is not much for a modern supermini (even a powerful one). The carbon emissions – and the cost of road tax – reflect the high fuel consumption. But never mind. At least this sport little plaything is 'quick, quick quick'.
