The Vauxhall Corsa is a consistently popular car. It's not only a favourite used car buy for students and first-time drivers, but the current model outperforms the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class executive saloon and Mini hatchback in the monthly sales charts. In fact, in the first six months of 2018, more than 28,000 Corsas were sold. To put that number in context, however, more than 56,000 Ford Fiestas were sold in the same period.

The current Corsa's two-star road test rating is also testament to how far it lags behind small car class leaders such as the Fiesta and Seat Ibiza. A major upgrade is needed, then, to help the Corsa fight for supremacy – and that's where this new version comes in.

Due to go on sale next year, it's key to the success of the Vauxhall brand, now that it's owned by PSA Group, which also owns France's Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands. Read on to find out what we know about it so far.
