Vauxhall Corsa 2014
The new Vauxhall Corsa model is just months away from being released and revealed to the general public. However, the existing Vauxhall Corsa model has continued to sell with the model finishing just behind the Ford Fiesta for the sales month of February.
The new Vauxhall Corsa is set to set the standard for the interior according to sources at Vauxhall. Vauxhall have stated that the new Corsa model will set the standard in terms of quality of the interior and the cabin in the current small city car market the model is currently in.
Vauxhall at the Geneva Motor Show
Vauxhall have been in the news a lot lately as the brand release two new Adam variants and owners General Motors pull the Chevrolet brand from the European Car Market. The future top of the range Adam model will be set the challenge of once again holding off the sales of both the Mini and the Fiat 500 model.
On the other hand, the Adam Rocks model seems to have taken on the development of the SUV and Crossover market look. The current crossover model at Vauxhall, the Mokka, has built up a considerable amount of market share and sales figures. However, a number of brands including the market leaders Nissan have two models in the upper and lower crossover markets.
The Vauxhall Adam Rocks model interestingly had a 1.0 litre ECOTEC engine fitted on the concept. This is an interesting development as rivals at Ford have built the last two years of success on a 1.0 litre engine that has helped to reduce the running costs of models.
It is believed that the new Corsa model will have the option of 1.0 litre ECOTEC engine alongside it, this new Vauxhall engine will be used in the UK to knock off the Ford Fiesta from the top spot.
The 2014 Audi S1 has officially made it’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show today, alongside many other manufacturer models such as the Toyota Aygo, Vauxhall Adam S and the Honda Civic Type R.
The Audi S1 specs
The new model is powered by a 2.0 litre turbo engine that delivers 228 brake horse power and 370Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a six speed manual gearbox and the model comes with quattro four wheel drive as standard. The three door S1 is capable of reaching 62mph from a standstill in 5.8 seconds, while the five door Sportback takes 5.9 seconds.
The Audi S1 styling and tech
Suspension for the S1 has been altered compared to the A1 model, with a new four link set up at the rear and firmer dampers all round to help improve cornering. The vehicle also gains alloy wheels that go up to 18 inches, large brake discs and new settings for the electromechanical power steering. Standard Audi Drive Select also enables drivers to vary the dampers and engine response.
The shape of the Audi S1′s headlights have been made sharper, which will be extended across the A1 range as part of a facelift for this year. The new S1 also gains xenons and at the back there are new LED tail lamps with unique graphics.
To make the S1 more distinguishable, the company are offering it in four exclusive new paint finishes, including Vegas Yellow. There is an aggressive new body kit and the choice of fitting a quattro exterior styling package too. The styling package includes a more striking rear spoiler and bumpers.
What’s the Audi S1 like inside and when is it available?
Inside, the model is largely furnished in black with dark grey dials in the instrument panel, though the quattro interior styling package adds splashes of colour to match the paint. Sports seats are included as standard, with racier versions complete with integrated headrests available as an option.
The new Audi S1 will go on sale in spring and though UK pricing has yet to be confirmed, prices are expected to start at £24,900 for the S1 before rising to around £25,630 for the Sportback variant.
In some of the latest car industry news today to make its way out of the Italian car company known as Fiat, we are excited to report on the latest breaking news regarding the official reveal of the brand new Panda cross model from the brand which has been officially revealed at the Geneva motor show within the past hour and will be all set to go on sale here in the UK and around various parts of the world too throughout this year. Over the duration of the brands existence, Fiat have had many big sellers on their hands which include the likes of the, Punto and indeed the Panda but the brand are hoping that with the introduction of this brand new crossover model sales figures could be set to rise and could even put them high up in the top spots of both the new and used car industry once again.
