Vauxhall has a new Corsa VXR coming in March. The 202 bhp, 1.6 litre turbo motor will be good for 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 143mph
New dampers from Koni provide ‘Frequency Selective Damping’ (FSD) which adapt to the car’s movements, ensuring that body control is maintained when the car is driven fast, but ride quality is optimised at lower speeds.
For the first time, Vauxhall is offering a two-stage switchable electronic stability programme (ESP) and traction control (TC) with the Corsa VXR. In Competition Mode the traction control is inactive, while the ESP is relaxed to allow less intervention. For track use, the ESP can be fully disabled.
And there’s more. Vauxhall will offer an optional Performance Package, which includes a Drexler limited-slip differential, larger 330 mm-diameter Brembo front brake discs, 18-inch alloy wheels and more focused FSD damper settings.
