Corsa Celebrates 25 Years

An era famous for Britpop, Walkmans, shell suits and The Spice Girls, the 1990s was a standout decade for British culture that welcomed another icon in 1993 - the Vauxhall Corsa.

One of the nation's most beloved vehicles, the Corsa is celebrating its 25th year in the UK, and to mark the occasion Vauxhall is offering a brand new Corsa from just £149 per month, with a £149 initial rental - just in time for it to wear a new '18' plate, too.

In a deal that would have surprised buyers back in 1993, let alone 2018, the Corsa on offer - an Energy three door 1.4 (75PS) - is worlds apart from its original namesake. For example, who'd have thought 25 years ago that a personal assistant could be accessed directly from the comfort of your car via Corsa's clever OnStar system?

But Vauxhall's best seller has always moved with the times. The Corsa was born with cassette players and now offers Apple CarPlay, it's most popular engines have almost doubled in power, and its interior dimensions have grown significantly. But while design and tech have changed over 25 years, the Corsa's amazing value hasn't, its price only increasing by £3,850.

The original Corsa Supermini was first introduced alongside supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista. Like Kate Moss, who also made her screen debut at the time, the Corsa has been part of British culture since 1993. As Vauxhall's best selling model, over two million have been sold in the UK - the equivalent of nine purchases an hour.

Leon Caruso, Retail Sales Director at Vauxhall Motors comments, 'The Corsa has played such an integral part in British culture over the past 25 years, I think it'd be difficult to find someone who hasn't owned or had a friend or family member who has owned a model.

'That's why we're celebrating the Corsa's quarter century anniversary year with our best ever offer, a Corsa Energy for just £149 per month, with a £149 initial rental. I encourage you to hot foot it down to your local Vauxhall retailer to take advantage of this fantastic, industry leading offer'.
