Vauxhall's all-new 4th generation Corsa 'E' supermini has been officially unveiled ahead of its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October and the first deliveries in January 2015.

the new Fourth-Generation Corsa is near-identical in length to the current model and retains its enviable space utilisation for occupants.

But almost every other element of its design and engineering has changed, significantly improving the car's driveability, efficiency, connectivity and overall ownership experience.

All of the car's body panels are new, and provide greater definition between the 'sporty' look of the three-door and the 'premium' five-door models. For the first time on a Corsa the car's striking profile has been overlaid with Brit Mark Adams' sculptural design, including elements such as the 'blade' running across the lower door-sections.

Almost every element of the Corsa's generous cabin is completely new, including a completely re-designed instrument panel and dashboard, and greatly improved levels of functionality, highlighted by Vauxhall's sophisticated IntelliLink system - its first use in a high-volume application.

Under the bonnet, new engines and transmissions will be available from launch. A 1.0-litre, three-cylinder ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo - just one of a raft of new engines from Vauxhall's new powertrain offensive - will headline in the petrol offerings, while a much-improved 1.3 CDTi, which meets stringent Euro-6 regulations, will appeal to diesel buyers.

Improved driveability to class-leading standards has been a key goal during the New Corsa's development, and to achieve this it has a completely re-designed chassis, with no carry-over componentry, and an emphasis on exceptional rolling refinement, ride quality, precise handling and stability.

From the outset, it's clear that Vauxhall is setting its sights high. "We wanted it to have the ride quality of a Polo, but to be as fun to drive as a Fiesta - if you hit those benchmarks you've cracked it, and we believe we have," said Mitchell.

"We've been pretty consistent with Corsa sales for the past few years. Clearly we have aspirations to grow our volume; we want to go at the Fiesta, which sells around 120,000, and steal some of its volume."
