Vauxhall Corsa offered with year's free insurance

A new, facelifted Corsa was introduced to coincide with the ’11′ registration plates in March, but the free insurance offer applies to the previous version of the supermini.

Available on most petrol Corsas with the exception of Exclusiv and VXR models, the year’s free insurance could save drivers up to £2,300.

“Insurance continues to rise, so for young drivers it’s an especially tough climate in which to run a car,” said Peter Hope, Vauxhall’s Marketing Director. “This new offer makes the Corsa, which is already price-competitive in its class, even more affordable to own.”

To qualify for the offer, the driver must be aged between 21 and 80 and will have held a full UK driving licence for at least 24 months.

Alternatively, the new Vauxhall Corsa is available to buy now from UK Vauxhall dealers.

The new Vauxhall Corsa boasts a facelift to the front end to incorporate Vauxhall’s new grille and badge. Inside, the interior has been upgraded with more upmarket materials and a range of low CO2 engines have been added to the supermini.

The Vauxhall Corsa is available in three- or five-door versions and comes with Vauxhall’s ‘lifetime warranty’ which covers the car for 100,000 miles and an unlimited period of time.

The new Corsa also comes with new engine technology, including Vauxhall’s Start/Stop technology, which reduces CO2 emissions on the 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX model to 94g/km.

This means the new Corsa is available in the lowest band of road tax and is exempt from the London congestion charge.

The new Vauxhall Corsa range starts from £9,995 – a small increase on the previous version because of the increase in VAT to 20 per cent from 4 January.
