After decades in the doldrums, things are finally looking really rather bright for Vauxhall since it became part of the Peugeot-Citroën group in 2017.

The all-new Vauxhall Corsa is the first mainstream model that the British brand has developed under the French firm's watch. As such, everything about the small hatchback is brand new, both inside and out.

New underpinnings – shared with the new Peugeot 208 – make it lighter yet also stiffer, in theory improving handling and performance. It's more spacious, too, for both passengers and luggage, despite being no larger than the current Corsa.

A new range of naturally aspirated and turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engines, plus a 1.5-litre diesel, will be on offer. What's more, the Corsa will be available as a fully electric car for the first time. The so-called Corsa-e has an official range of 205 miles and can be charged from 0-80% in just half an hour.

The interior is of an updated design, gaining Peugeot's large infotainment touchscreen system, a digital instrument display and plusher materials but retaining physical air conditioning controls and Vauxhall's current steering wheel design.
