Vauxhall has unveiled the 2015 Corsa, ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show on October 4th.

Looking instantly recognizable, the forth-generation model adopts an Adam-inspired front fascia with a wide grille that is flanked by distinctive headlights. Moving further back, we can see a strong shoulder line, lower side "blades" and protruding taillights.

The interior is a little bland but features a three-spoke steering wheel, gloss black trim and numerous metallic accents. The model will also come equipped with an IntelliLink infotainment system that has a 7-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity and Siri Eyes Free compatibility. Options will include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, ambient interior lighting and a panoramic sunroof - among other things.

The company declined to release detailed performance specifications but confirmed the model will be offered with a variety of engines including:

  • A turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol with outputs of 90 PS (66 kW) and 115 PS (84 kW)
  • A turbocharged 1.4-liter with 100 PS (73 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque
  • Two naturally aspirated petrol units with displacements of a 1.2- and a 1.4-liters
  • A "much improved" 1.3-liter CDTi diesel

The engines will be connected to new manual and automatic transmissions that have an "improved shift quality" and greater efficiency.

The 2015 Corsa rides on a redesigned chassis with all-new suspension components including front knuckle joints that promise to deliver more "taught and precise handling." The model also has a new speed-sensitive electric power steering system and a center of gravity that is 5 centimeters lower than its predecessor.

The model also gains a variety of new safety systems including High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blindspot Alert, Hill Start Assist and Automatic Park Assist - just to name a few.

The 2015 Vauxhall Corsa will go on sale later this year and additional information will be released closer to launch.
