New Corsa reveals its darker side


Vauxhall Corsa Black Edition

Vauxhall’s new limited-edition Corsa Black Edition adds a new engine to the range – a punchy 1.4-turbo with start/stop, making it one of the most powerful Corsas on the market.


The new engine produces 120PS and maximum torque of 175Nm, starting at 1,750rpm. The latest addition to the Corsa range has a top speed of 121mph and achieves 0-60mph in 9.7 seconds. Its fuel-consumption is 51.4mpg and CO2 emissions are as low as 129g/km.


Available in both 3-door and 5-door body styles, the Black Edition is based on the Corsa Limited Edition. Besides the 120PS engine, it gains a black logo bar and new 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

Sporty styling, inside and out

A raft of sporty styling features - including body-coloured front lower spoiler, side sills, rear lower skirt and rear spoiler – turn the Black Edition into one of the sleekest Corsas yet. Its looks are further enhanced by front fog lights, dark-style headlights and tail lights, and dark-tinted rear and rear-side windows.


Inside, sports seats, a leather-covered steering wheel, sports pedals, silver interior seat stitching and matt chrome air vent surrounds set the Black Edition apart from all other Corsas.


For those who wish to go further upmarket, the Black Edition boasts a broad range of innovative extras not offered by competitors, such as the Touch and Connect infotainment system, climate control and adaptive forward lighting.


The Corsa Black Edition is on sale now at £15,995 for the 3-door and £16,425 for the 5-door model.
