Vauxhall has hinted that a warm-hatch version of the new Corsa could be on its way.
The company exhibits a new concept vehicle, the Corsavan, at this week’s Paris Motor Show. Based on the standard three-door Corsa hatchback, the concept is designed to show the latest generation of Vauxhall’s miniature van might work.
However, the Corsavan carries a sporty body kit featuring a new front bumper, meaty side sills and a rear spoiler, and red front brake callipers and 17-inch alloy wheels are also used. While sportier than the standard model, the look isn't hardcore enough be the Corsa VXR's new face, a car that has already been confirmed.
An 89bhp 1.3-litre CDTi diesels engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox, powers the concept car. Vauxhall have hinted that the Corsa VXR will have around 200bhp, so we reckon a SRi version would have between 120bhp and 150bhp.
