A timeline of the Vauxhall Corsa

Corsa Griffin

Limited Edition Corsa Griffin (2018)

In celebration of 25 years since the Corsa was first introduced, Vauxhall have released the new Corsa Griffin, a limited-edition Corsa model – available now to purchase or test drive at Evans Halshaw Vauxhall dealerships.

The new Corsa Griffin is great value for money, offering a top trim level spec with great kit, but this Limited Edition model costs little more than an entry level Corsa.

The Vauxhall Corsa Griffin is designed to stand out with its unique black styling pack including a contrast black roof, front grille, door mirrors and matching dark tinted rear windows. Looks aside, the Griffin is packed with some brilliant gadgets including Griffin branded sports-style heated front seats and the sought-after Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.

The Griffin is the latest Corsa to date showing dedication to the Vauxhall brand, with a name resembling the iconic Griffin emblem we all know and love.

Corsa E

Corsa E (2014 - present)

Now, the Corsa has become the perfect, stylish city car. Its sculptural exterior is certainly an upgrade on the Corsa B from 25 years ago. With all the latest technology including Vauxhall OnStar which keeps drivers connected to an advisor 24/7 and in-car Wi-Fi, it's impossible not to fall in love with the Corsa of today.

Crafted with high-quality materials and eye-catching details like its silver trim and new high-power engines, the Corsa E is fantastic for new or young drivers.

Corsa D

Corsa D (2006-2014)

This new model was much different to its predecessor - bigger, more grown up and better built. After such a great reaction to the risk Vauxhall had taken with the Astra, they felt it was time to add something extra to the Corsa range. First, Vauxhall added the 189bhp Corsa VXR, followed by the SRi variant - both with a 1.6T engine, and then 1.7 CDTi diesel SRi. In 2008, Vauxhall released the Corsa ecoFLEX, which was a super-economical model with a 1.3-litre CDTi engine.

Corsa C

Corsa C (2000-2006)

The second-generation was unveiled in 2000 and arrived in dealers in the October of that year.

Many drivers were very impressed with its class-leading technology, which included Easytronic gear changing.

In 2003, the model was given a major face lift - cosmetic changes including new clear-lens headlights, bumpers to match the body of the car and side rubbing strips - all this was alongside a more spacious boot.

Corsa B

Corsa B (1992-2000)

Manufactured in 1992 and unveiled to the public in 1993, Vauxhall dropped 'Nova' from its title in the UK and this car became the Corsa.

This spacious Euro supermini had a stylish interior and good looking exterior design features. Its performance was brisk and weight low, meaning it had fine handling.

By 1993, the small car sector was ready for a mould-breaking new entrant, and the new Corsa brought features like power steering, anti-lock brakes and a car alarm.
