The upcoming Vauxhall Corsa has been spotted testing in images courtesy of Car Advice. This camouflage-covered test car gives us our first clues about what Vauxhall’s new supermini will look like when it goes on sale in 2018.

2018 Vauxhall Corsa styling
A thick layer of speckled black and white vinyl covers this new car’s body but we can see a pair of headlights similar to those fitted to latest Vauxhall Astra peeking through the heavy camouflage. A slim grille and a pair of broad brakelights are expected to feature on the new Corsa but some of its bigger brother’s stylish lines appear to have been lost in favour of a more practical, boxy shape.
2018 Vauxhall Corsa interior
No images or official details have been released but we expect the new Corsa’s interior to feature a new dashboard design inspired by the latest Astra. A heavily revised infotainment system should be offered in mid-range models with both Vauxhall’s OnStar personal assistant and sat nav functions while top-spec versions could come with heated seats and a plusher selection of materials.
2018 Vauxhall Corsa engines and driving
Vauxhall has reportedly put the Corsa on a significant diet. Extensive use of aluminium in place of conventional steel should help this new supermini weigh significantly less than the car it replaces – fuel economy and acceleration should be improved as a result.
The existing car’s range of perky petrol and fuel-sipping diesel engines are expected to receive a few choice upgrades, too. A compact 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol should return more than 65mpg while a more powerful 1.4-litre turbocharged unit should help the new car reach 62mph from rest in less than 9 seconds.
2018 Vauxhall Corsa price and release date
No official details have been released but the new Corsa should go on sale in 2018 following a motor show appearance in 2017. This updated model is expected to cost approximately the same across the range as the car it replaces – entry-level versions will cost around £10,000 while range-topping models could set you back closer to £20,000.
