Vauxhall announced a new limited edition of the Corsa VXR called Blue, featuring a styling kit and loads of new equipments. The Corsa to be honest is a very feminine car, but with the VXR treatment it changes character and becomes a pocket rocket. And now with the Blue package it becomes a real macho man!
Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue features new styling details, additional kit as standard and a head-turning paintjob. The package includes Arden Blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloys, dark-tinted glass, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats. 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.
What’s more, 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. The same aggressive look continues inside where you’ll find stitching on the leather steering-wheel, the interior air-vent colour and the trim on the Recaro seats.
This awesome little car is powered by a 1.6 Turbo, producing 192PS featuring an overboost function that delivers 260+ Nm of torque for a 0 to 60 sprint time of 6.8 seconds and top speed of 140mph. 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
The Blue offers a £445 saving compared with the cost of speccing a ‘standard’ Corsa VXR, and since it’s ought to rival Citroen DS3 R and the Mini Cooper Works, Vauxhall made sure it has the edge pricewise. So at £19,425 it undercuts the competition by up to £3,600.
