It has become a struggle to drive a few miles down British roads without spotting a Vauxhall Corsa. A rainbow of red, green, blue, orange and black Corsas have become an iconic part of our roads. Here we introduce you to a new member of the Vauxhall family to join our motorways and cities very soon - the Vauxhall Corsa GSi.
The first generation Vauxhall Corsa GSi will replace the discontinued VXR as Corsa’s most sporty model. In terms of speed, the GSi underperforms in comparison to the VXR. The former Corsa model is capable of sprinting from 0-62 mph in just 6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 143 mph. Whereas, the GSi’s is considerably less hardcore with a time of 8.9 seconds to hit 62 mph and a top speed of 129 mph.
Power of the GSi comes from a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine. It makes 148 bhp, a substantial dip from the VXR’s 204 bhp.
Where the new Corsa will excel is in emissions and economy. A 49.6mpg combined cycle fuel economy and CO2 emissions of 139g/km is a vast improvement from the 37.7mpg and 174g/km of the VXR.
Standard equipment on the GSi includes 17-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, carbon-effect door mirrors, dark tinted rear windows and an infotainment system featuring both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Vauxhall has confirmed a hefty start value of £18,995 for the new GSi, this will bag you the standard specification. An additional £1,900 for the GSi Plus Pack will upgrade you to 18-inch rims, Xenon lights and Recaro seats. Although, this refined model variant will not grant any changes in speed or performance.
