Explore The New 148 HP Vauxhall Corsa GSi In 38 New Images

Vauxhall’s latest entry to the hot (or, rather, warm) hatch segment is the Corsa GSi, and it’s up for grabs in the United Kingdom.

Priced from £18,995 ($25,107/€21,403), tax included, it arrives in showrooms this month. It undercuts the Ford Fiesta ST, Renault Clio RS and Volkswagen Polo GTI by £250 ($330/€282), £1,305 ($1,725/€1,470) and £2,525 ($3,337/€2,845), respectively, although all of the aforementioned models are more powerful.

Standard gear includes a specific GSi body kit, tinted rear windows, carbon effect grille bar and side mirror caps, LED DRLs and 17-inch bi-color diamond-cut alloy wheels. Inside, users will be greeted by the sporty front seats, leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, and IntelliLink infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

For £1,900 ($2,511/€2,141) more, you can have the GSi Plus Pack, which adds 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights with cornering function and Recaro leather seats.

Based on the 210 PS (207 hp / 154 kW) Corsa VXR/OPC, the GSi, which is only available as a three-door, is powered by a 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) 1.4-liter four-banger. Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) takes 8.4 seconds, and flat out, it will do 129 mph (208 km/h).

The automaker states that the maximum torque is produced between 2,750 and 4,500 rpm, and with the short-ratio six-speed manual gearbox, which is the only option, it goes from 50 to 70 mph (80-113 km/h) in fifth gear in 9.9 seconds.
