The VXR version of the Vauxhall Corsa is thrilling and exhilarating in all that it does. A turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine is responsible for the exciting performance and it is supported by a dynamic bodykit and sporty interior cabin.
All of the safety equipment from the regular Corsa is carried over to the VXR model, which means ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Corsa VXR Design
The VXR is noticeably different to its less powerful siblings from the moment you set your eyes on it. Xenon headlamps and LED DRLs give you a distinctive look and the flared arches, muscular sills and twin-pipe exhaust highlight the powerful engine.
A rear spoiler is also fitted as standard alongside 17-inch alloy wheels, which can be upgraded to 18-inch if you want a more boy-racer look.
Inside the VXR the feeling of anticipation before you start the engine is heightened by flashy looking dials as well as aluminium pedals and a flat-bottomed leather steering wheel.
Half-leather bucket seats mean a go-kart like feel when you’re on the move and they can be upgraded to full leather for improved comfort. It is only available as a three door but with a 285-litre boot it is surprisingly spacious for such a compact car.
The VXR is fitted with the same IntelliLink infotainment system that is found in the Adam and Insignia models. You will also find air conditioning, cruise control and a trip computer included as standard, while the remote control security-alarm system will keep the car safe when you have to leave it.
The new look Corsa VXR has the same engine as the old model, with the 1.6-litre turbocharged option producing 204PS. This means a 0-60mph time of just 6.5 seconds, quicker than the Ford Fiesta ST and Renault Clio RS, its market rivals.
Adding the Performance Pack will give you Drexler limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes and a retuned suspension setup. This is well worth the extra cost as it improves cornering and generally makes it easier to drive.
