    Vauxhall Corsa VXR Coming to Britain in May

    All-New Vauxhall Corsa VXR Coming to Britain in May, Will Outgun Polo GTI, MINI Cooper S
    BY MIHNEA RADU
    14TH APRIL 2015

    Vauxhall has just released full press information on the all-new Corsa VXR hot hatch model. It might look a lot like the previous model, but it could be better value than the Polo GTI or Peugeot 208 GTi.

    Because Opel revealed left-hand drive Corsa OPC earlier this year, we already know all about the hottest Vauxhall model. It will pack a 1.6-liter turbo punch with 205 PS and a respectable 280 Nm of torque. That makes it gutsier than any of its competitors, but the performance is about average. 0 to 60 mph is dealt with easily in 6.5 seconds, and a top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h) can be achieved.

    I LOVE IT!
    I love the color! I love how it is something other than gray we see in all manufacturer promos. I love how it is a 3-door hatch. I love the wheels.

    And the obligatory: Bring it as a Buick!

    I would say it would make sense as a better Sonic RS.
    Straights are for fast cars, corners are for fast drivers.

    Opel/Vauxhall don't use the Sonic - the only Opel/Vauxhalls using the old Gamma-derived platform are the Mokka and Karl/Viva - the Corsa uses the SCCS platform from the GM-Fiat alliance

    Exactly. Offer the Corsa instead of the current Sonic. Consolidate some of these chassis.

    It looks very very nice. Buick Could use a car like this.

    I always say I will buy this or that car. But lately I have been in the mood for compacts, a must if you want to live in the city, and I would appreciate a hot hatch. The other day saw a green Spark, it looked really good.
