New Corsa set for London show

22 March 2006

  • London motor show debut for Vauxhall supermini
  • Three- and five-door models at launch
  • VXR version planned with nearly 200bhp


Vauxhall has confirmed that the all-new Corsa will make its world debut at the British Motor Show in London this July.

Both three- and five-door versions of the new supermini will be unveiled, with sales in the UK kicking off in the autumn.

Like the Astra, the three-door Corsa will have coupe-like styling in a bid to differentiate it from the five-door car and appeal to younger buyers.

Hot VXR versions, which will develop close to 200bhp, are expected to go on sale in mid-2007 for around £14,000.

Other likely world debuts for the London show include the next-generation Land Rover Freelander and a hot Honda Civic Type-RR, which could have as much as 250bhp.

Tickets for the show cost £8 for any weekday, or £12 for weekend tickets. First-day tickets cost £30 each. For more details, call 0870 060 0245 or visit the website The show runs from 20-30 July.
