New Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue

Hot on the heels of the new-look Vauxhall Corsa range, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue Edition features new styling details, additional kit as standard and a head-turning paintjob, at a price that'll send its rivals into a spin.

At £19,425 (including 20% VAT), the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue undercuts key competitors like the Citroen DS3 R and the Mini Cooper Works by up to £3,600. Included in its price, this limited edition model features Arden Blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloys, dark-tinted glass, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats - that equates to a £445 saving compared with the cost of speccing a 'standard' Vauxhall Corsa VXR with this kit.

Like other models in the new-look Vauxhall Corsa range, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR and VXR Blue sport new 'Eagle-Eye' headlamps and a signature bar across the grille, coloured in blue. But in addition, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR gets a more aggressive front end, with deep in-set fog lamps, a wider and more prominent grille and a low, sculpted front spoiler to boost its sporting appeal. Inside, blue detailing can be found throughout, including the stitching on the leather steering-wheel, the interior air-vent colour and the trim on the Recaro seats.

Powered by the lightweight 1.6 Turbo, producing 192PS, this Vauxhall Corsa VXR boasts a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 140mph. An overboost feature increases maximum torque to 260+Nm when the power is needed.

The Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue comes with lowered sports suspension, uprated brakes and switchable Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), guaranteeing enthusiastic drivers a fine mix of dynamic security and adjustability.

Available to order now, the Vauxhall Corsa VXR Blue will hit dealers late February.
