The Vauxhall Corsa GSi can accomplish 62 miles per hour in 8.9 seconds. It will accelerate from 50 mph to 75 miles per hour in 9.9 secs in 5th gear.
These numbers are rather pleased for a Fiesta-sized car. The engine inside is a small, 1.4-liter, turbocharged, device that’s qualified of supplying 148 horse power and 162 pound-feet of torque.

It will certainly offer you with fun, despite having a reduced full throttle of 129 miles per hour. All that with a six-speed stick shift.


I know I have claimed that the Corsa GSi ought to be cheap and enjoyable. However it hardly is as its price in Germany is just shy of EUR20,000 ($ 23,500). Is that as well costly for a small car with a 148 horsepower engine? Not actually, I guess.

The car isn’t incredibly quickly, nor does it try to be. Yet, it is famously with the ability of supplying a lot of enjoyable. Even at the Nurburgring, as that is the place where it was developed. The 148 horsepower engine is just enough to encourage it to some enjoyable speed. Yet, it will certainly never ever overpower it.
