What's all this about?

Vauxhall has already confirmed the release and given us pictures of the Corsa GSi, but now we know what's powering it.

And what engine have we got?

The 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, as previously seen in the Adam S (nee Grand Slam), which delivers 150hp and 220Nm, the latter available from 3,000- to 4,500rpm. In the Corsa, that means 0-62mph in 8.9 seconds and a 128mph top speed, with all the power going to the front wheels via a six-speed short-ratio manual gearbox. Vauxhall also quotes a 50-70mph time of 9.9 seconds in fifth gear.

What about fuel economy and so on?

Really?! OK, the Corsa GSi can do up to 47.1mpg with as little as 139g/km CO2. Happy now?

Yes, I am thanks. Anything else to add?

Not beyond what we already have been told about equipment and so on, but as soon as we've got pricing and a release date, we'll bring you the full run-down.
