Vauxhall Corsa B (1993 - 2000)
The Corsa was originally known in the UK as the Nova, and was only produced in Spain. The car hit the British market in 1983, released initially as three-door hatchback and two-door saloon models. British Vauxhall workers were unhappy with the fact that the Corsa was only being built in Spain. This changed with the Corsa B in 1993, with production expanding throughout Europe and South America. The Nova name was dropped and the car became known as the Corsa. The Corsa B was released in a number of body types including a three and five-door hatchback, four-door saloon, five-door estate and two-door coupe pick up. Four cylinder power was introduced with these cars with 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrol engines, as well as an economical 1.5l turbodiesel alternative.
Vauxhall Corsa C (2000 - 2006)
Now 12'' 3" long and 6'' 3" wide, the Corsa C was first revealed in 1999 and introduced to the European market in 2000. This generation of Corsa includes a three and five-door hatchback, three-door car derived van, two-door pickup and the return of the four-door saloon. It was a huge success in Britain, becoming the most popular supermini and second most popular car overall in 2002, 2003 and 2004. It has remained popular ever since, winning Britain''s best selling supermini in 2005. It was also named the Semperit Irish Car of the Year in Ireland in 2001.
Over the years, the Corsa C saw a few upgrades. For example in 2002 a 74bhp 1.7DTi 16v diesel engine become available with SXi models, offering an excellent 60.1mpg economy. A 65bhp version of the same 16 valve diesel engine also become available with Club models, giving 60.1mpg in the combined cycle. In 2004, more improvements were made, including ABS and Brake Assist as standard across the majority of the range.
Vauxhall Corsa D (2006 - 2014)
The Vauxhall Corsa D is available as a three or five-door hatchback, or as a three-door car-derived van. At launch the engine sizes available were the same as those used with the Corsa C, however, the 1.3 and 1.7 litre CDTI engines were upgraded, giving drivers power ranging from 75 PS to 125 PS. Over the course of eight years of production the Corsa D saw two facelifts: one in 2010 and another in 2011. The facelift in 2010 saw upgrades such as a boosted petrol and diesel engine line up to fully comply with Euro 5 standards. The ride and handling were also improved. In 2011, Start/Stop was added to engines to improve their efficiency even further. This facelift also saw a revised front end, consisting of a new grille, a restyled front bumper and new Eagle Eye headlamps. This was the biggest change over its predecessor.
Vauxhall Corsa E (2014 - Present)
The Corsa E model debuted at the 2014 Paris Motor Show offering identical interior and exterior dimensions to the Corsa D, although the exterior panels and sheets have been revised. We saw a bigger change under the bonnet, with the introduction of an all new 1.0 three cylinder ECOTEC engine which offers 90 PS or 115 PS, giving 70Nm of torque.
