Vauxhall says most prices for cars in the range are same or lower than the old car when compared on a model-for-model basis. The manufacturer also states that the residuals are predicted to be strong, more than £1000 better over three years than the old car. The pricing structure of the Corsa marks reductions in list price by up to £3,000, when compared to the outgoing model. For example, customers opting for the Corsa Sri VX Line 1.2i with air con will save £2,970 versus the outgoing Sri 1.4 with air con.

The base model will be the 1.2 Sting, which comes with 16in alloys, Bluetooth and USB connectivity and cruise control.
There are eight other trim levels - one less than the previous iteration. Trim levels comprise of Life, Sting, Sting R, Design, Sri, Excite, SE, Sri VX Line, and Limited Edition. The model is also offered in three- and five-door body styles.

Opening the range is the Life trim, with models priced from between £10,900 and £13,750. Standard equipment includes stereo radio and aux-in socket, power steering, remote control central locking, hill start assist, and ESP.

The Sting specification adds cruise control, leather-covered steering wheel, CD/MP3 player, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, LED daytime running lights, USB connection with iPod control, and driver's seat height adjuster. Vauxhall Sting models are priced between £8,995 and £11,425.

Priced from £10,995, the Corsa Sting R features 16-inch black alloy wheels, sports pedals, chrome-effect exhaust tailpipe extension, and leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob.

The Corsa Excite models come even more endowed with equipment, offering air conditioning, 16-inch alloys, front fog lights, IntelliLink audio system with digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity, heated front seats, and more. Prices range between £11,965 and £15,115.

Costing from between £13,805 and £16,235, the Limited Edition variants feature larger 17-inch black alloy wheels, sports suspension with lower ride height, sports-style front seats, and many of the aforementioned kit offered on the Excite trim.

Opting for the Corsa Design versions will bring a price tag of between £10,900 and £14,250, in addition to air conditioning, cruise control, IntelliLink, LED daytime running lights, and a leather-covered steering wheel.

Priced between £12,240 and £15,590, the Corsa SE offers 16-inch alloys, electrically-heated leather-covered steering wheel and front seats, front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights with chrome-effect surround, and rain-sensitive wipers.

The SRi specification features 16-inch black alloys, front fog lights with chrome-effect surround, sports-style front seats and pedals, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers, automatic lighting control, and multi-function trip computer.

The further enhanced SRi VX-Line adds larger 17-inch alloys, sports suspension with lower ride height, chrome-effect exhaust tailpipe extension, and body-colour door mirrors, front lower spoiler, side sills, rear roof spoiler (three-door only), and rear lower skirt.

Vauxhall has priced the SRi models at between £11,595 and £14,945, while the SRi VX-Line carries a price of between £12,630 and £15,980.

UK-spec Corsas have their own steering set-ups tuned at the Millbrook proving ground. The carried-over monocoque means that the dimensions are largely the same as the outgoing car's, with just 3mm added in length.

Two chassis set-ups will be offered: a standard Comfort set-up with 16-inch wheels, and a Sport option that rides 15-20mm lower and is offered with 16-inch or 17-inch wheels

Five engines will be offered from launch. The base unit will be a normally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol four-pot with 69bhp. Next in the range is an 89bhp 1.4-litre petrol, which is expected to be the best-seller, followed by a 1.4-litre petrol turbo with 99bhp.

The most interesting engine will be the turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol triple, which will be introduced before the Corsa in the Adam next month. It will be offered with 89bhp and 113bhp outputs, each of which achieves 125lb ft of torque from 1800rpm. Vauxhall claims this strong low-end is particularly evident during acceleration from 50mph to 75mph - the Corsa with 133bhp makes this transition in just 10.4 seconds.

Both variants of this new engine are fitted with stop-start as standard and the 89bhp three-door returns 54.7mpg on the combined cycle according to the manufacturer's claims.

The sole diesel option will be a 1.3-litre turbodiesel with either 74bhp or 94bhp. Both versions come with fuel-saving stop-start technology fitted as standard. Vauxhall promises big CO2 and economy improvements over the current range.

At launch, the most frugal Corsa diesel version - with 94bhp, five-speed manual transmission and braking energy recuperation system - can reduce the three-door model's CO2 emissions down to 85g/km and fuel consumption down to a claimed 87.8mpg on the combined cycle.

It can be ordered from 8 October, but full production won't get into full swing until November, so deliveries are expected to start in January.

That's an extremely big saving in comparison to the competition. At £8995 that's just a few hundred pounds more than base-spec cars from the class below. Whilst I wish it would have looked a little more different to the outgoing model I am near sold on the looks, it'll be interesting to see how this fares against the competition.
