The stylish design continues inside the cabin, with neat touches including a piano-black lacquer effect on selected models, as well as translucent backlit dials for both major and minor controls.
Overall quality marks a significant step forward for Corsa, especially inside, where the consistently high grade materials give a luxurious, upmarket feel. A range of vibrant interior colours and door trims, coupled to a large glass area give the cabin a bright, modern and airy feel.
Practicality is important to all supermini drivers, and it’s another area where Corsa scores highly. The steering wheel is adjustable for both height and reach, while the clearly laid-out dash and wide choice of storage compartments and cubby holes offer plenty of space for small and large items.
There’s more space than before, too, with greater legroom, shoulder room and headroom front and rear, and ergonomically designed seats which have been created to offer the best in comfort and support.
New Corsa also promises to have one of the quietest cabins in its class, with reduced NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) thanks to specially designed engine mounts, which damp most of the movement from the engine bay to stop it transmitting into the cabin.Features
At launch, New Corsa will be offered in five trim levels - Expression, Life, Club, SXi and Design. Further models, including a hot VXR, will follow.
All will benefit from GM’s innovative technology features, with highlights including halogen AFL curve lighting, follow-me-home lighting and translucent interior dials.
On selected models, New Corsa will feature unique settings, which can be stored in the key. The car’s sophisticated electronics and infotainment system can allow up to five different drivers to programme the car to their preferences, saving individual choices for favoured radio station and climate control.
The infotainment system itself can rival many home living room systems, with an output of up to 150-watts and a choice of MP3-compatible CD players, DAB Digital Radio and navigation systems, as well as a Bluetooth compatible mobile phone interface with voice control.
Of course, it’s not just technological features that add to the appeal of a car, so the higher models in the Corsa line-up also get some traditional enhancements, including matt chrome-effect rims around the dials, leather-trimmed steering wheel, dark-tinted lamps and chrome exhaust tailpipes, all helping mark the car out to be as individual as its owner.
