Vauxhall Corsa GSi Returns After 25 Years

Vauxhall has revived the Corsa GSi name after a 25-year absence, unveiling a new hot hatch that aims to offer similar driving thrills to the Corsa VXR, but with all the space and efficiency of the ordinary model.

Available exclusively as a three-door model, the new Vauxhall Corsa GSi adopts bespoke bodywork that includes enlarged air intakes and a honeycomb grille up front. Additionally, there are carbon fiber accents along the flanks, extended side skirts, a large rear spoiler and a chrome tailpipe.

Differentiating the interior of the Corsa GSi from other Corsa variants are aluminum pedals and a leather sports steering wheel. Among the standard features included are Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Final upgrades made to the GSi include 18-inch alloy wheels and the same suspension and brakes as the Corsa VXR.

Interestingly, the brand has yet to release engine specifications about the model, simply stating that more details will be released later in the year.

Vauxhall first used the GSi moniker in 1993 for a version of the original Corsa. The vehicle only survived for one model year and utilized a 1.6-liter petrol engine delivering 105 hp at 6000 rpm. It could also reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in a respectable 9.2 seconds.
