Spy Images of a Slightly Face Lifted Vauxhall Corsa VXR Leaked
|   Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Vauxhall is coming up with a slightly modified Corsa VXR and even though official word is yet to arrive, we have spotted a test mule doing rounds at Nürburgring. Parts from the original vehicle have been kept intact as much as possible, to give us the 2011 feel that made the Corsa VXR a hit favorite with one and all. Excellent traction control and road grip have been maintained, which lends stability to this vehicle.

It is fun to drive around in both low and high RPMs, although a mechanically limited slip differential is responsible for the perfect feel on road.
Presence of body roll or under steer / over steer is absent, while wheel spin can be controlled with help from an external control measure. Without engine specifications having been confirmed, we can only say that this car is capable of displacing 201 BHP.

A four cylindered engine is in place and is responsible for maximum power displacement, while added electronics assistance measures, keep this vehicle grounded at all times. Bilstein powered suspension system is in place while stiffer and lower VXR suspension maintains standard ride height and feel. The all new sports exhaust system gives this vehicle an all new engine note, which is soothing even on long exposure.

Standard 18 inch rims have been confirmed, with Recaro seats providing superior body grip and comfort. This vehicle is comfortable on low, moderate and high speeds, while heavy exhaust noise makes it eager to accelerate while giving it a quick feel. Be it urban traffic or smooth European country roads, the Corsa VXR manage to glide over just as easily. We were duly impressed with Vauxhall's Corsa VXR back in 2011 and hope to gain a similar experience with this vehicle too.

The compact design keeps this vehicle on road, while precision driving ensures that this vehicle goes anywhere that you want it to, without deflecting from path. This vehicle has an acute sense of accuracy that is difficult to come across in other vehicles in range. Safety, measures have also been taken care of, which gives this vehicle the utter confidence that people want.

Torque steer is present on this new variant and we expect to feel its presence right from the word go. Even though its exterior is stylish and sporty, the interior could do with a little more fact lifting. It feels like the old cabin, as most of its components have been directly lifted off Vauxhall's current Corsa VRX variant. Priced at £22,390, this vehicle is bang on for budget. Hence, if you are on a lookout for a budget hatch back, with the qualities of a hot hatch, this vehicle is the one for you.

Vauxhall claims a top speed of 143 MPH, while acceleration from 0 – 60 MPH is possible within 6.5 seconds. Fuel efficiency around 37.3 MPG is expected along with 178 g/km of CO2. These figures are not as bad as some of its market competitors. Hence, we can safely say that this vehicle has everything it takes to stand out in a crowd.
