Beyond the mechanical changes, Vauxhall has added a new entry level model, called the Active, which starts at £11,250 and comes with Bluetooth, 15-inch alloy wheels and cruise control as standard. The rest of the range is made up of six trims: Design, Energy, Sport, SRi Nav and SE Nav, with an SRi VX model sitting at the top of the range. Order books for the refreshed range are open now.

Vauxhall has also introduced the Lux pack – which costs £1,550 and brings with it a rear view camera, climate control and 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, however, it is only available to customers choosing the SE Nav trim.

The sporty Corsa GSi, promised to be on sale this year is still yet to arrive, but it is expected to also feature a 1.4-litre petrol engine but in turbocharged 148bhp guise. Inside the GSi there will be Recaro sports seats, and it will get the suspension and brakes from the hot VXR.
