Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue

The British arm of Opel, is launching the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue on the UK market, a limited edition Corsa with new styling details and additional standard features.

Besides the striking new Blue metallic paint job, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue comes with 18 inch alloys, tinted windows, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats, all of which will help save 445 GBP when compared to the same features included in this kit added on the standard Corsa VXR.

Under the bonnet the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue features a 1.6-litre Turbo engine rated at 192 PS which enables the car to sprint from nought to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 140 mph.

The Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue also comes with a stiffer and lower suspension, better brakes and switchable ESP.

The Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue price is 19,425 GBP.

Vauxhall press release :

    * Limited edition Corsa VXR Blue joins new Corsa range
    * High-spec model with big cost saving on equipment vs. standard car
    * Bold styling features complement design refresh from rest of range

Luton – Hot on the heels of the new-look Corsa range, the Corsa VXR Blue Edition features new styling details, additional kit as standard and a head-turning paintjob, at a price that’ll send its rivals into a spin.

At £19,425 (including 20% VAT), the Corsa VXR Blue

undercuts key competitors like the Citroen DS3 R and the Mini Cooper Works by up to £3,600. Included in its price, this limited edition model features Arden Blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloys, dark-tinted glass, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats – that equates to a £445 saving compared with the cost of speccing a ‘standard’ Corsa VXR with this kit.

Like other models in the new-look Corsa range, the VXR and VXR Blue sport new ‘Eagle-Eye’ headlamps and a signature bar across the grille, coloured in blue. But in addition, the VXR gets a more aggressive front end, with deep in-set fog lamps, a wider and more prominent grille and a low, sculpted front spoiler to boost its sporting appeal. Inside, blue detailing can be found throughout, including the stitching on the leather steering-wheel, the interior air-vent colour and the trim on the Recaro seats.

Powered by the lightweight 1.6 Turbo, producing 192PS, this VXR boasts a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 140mph. An overboost feature increases maximum torque to 260+Nm when the power is needed.

The Corsa VXR Blue comes with lowered sports suspension, uprated brakes and switchable Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), guaranteeing enthusiastic drivers a fine mix of dynamic security and adjustability.

Available to order now, the Corsa VXR Blue will hit dealers late February.

  1. Lyndsey Eason :
    Given the choice I would certainly choose the DS3 racing with 207bhp!! Looks so much better than the dated Corsa.(even with the "facelift"Having driven both the standard Corsa and the DS3, again the DS3 is in a league of it own when against the Corsa, exterior, interior and drive.
  1. new car :
    very aggressive front view with the fog lights are set, a larger front grille and lower front spoiler... i like this car
