These spy shots show the new Vauxhall Corsa VXR in the final stages of testing, ahead of a launch in the spring of 2015. Visually, the new Corsa VXR appears to follow the same extrovert recipe as the existing hot hatch - but underneath, we're set for more grunt and a welcome jump in performance.

This Corsa is betrayed as a VXR (or Opel OPC in continental Europe) by its 18-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels, which share the same look as the Astra VXR and Insignia VXR's trademark wheels. Up front, the braking system uses bigger monobloc calipers, and the whole car appears to ride lower than the new Corsa.

Meanwhile, the body has sprouted a no-nonsense roof spoiler, and a dual exhaust system with four diffuser vanes moulded into the rear bumper. The front bumper too has a lower, more ground-hugging shape, while dummy brake ducts are hidden under the disguise tape.

Vauxhall has confirmed a new Corsa VXR is being developed, too. "We'd like to do one; there's such a following for it, we'd be crazy not to do it," said small car brand manager Ian Mitchell. "You might see something next year." - Here's hoping! :D

A 197bhp version of Vauxhall's new 1.6 direct-injection turbo is likely under the bonnet - the current VXR has 189bhp - with room to produce more potent versions later in the car's life.

The price is key to this segment and it does pull the advantage, especially with a media system that isn't laggy. Apart from that, it's pretty much a level playing field.
