Corsa F

I thought I'd start a separate thread for this one, following the Astra thread. They have already released a preview image:

It is supposed to be based on the new 208 platform and is likely to use the 1.2 turbo from PSA.

Unsure on the new F , based on 208 platform - oh dear. 1.2 turbo engines will certainly up the power from the current n/a 1.4 that have been around for donkeys years . But good and bad from those engines I've heard. Vauxhall have certainly got to up their game with the new corsa. Trying to compete with the fiesta,polo,Ibiza isn't going to be easy. But I really hope they can do it , would be nice to see a Vauxhall at the top of the tree again.

From what I've seen I like the look of it. Although I've never owned a Corsa and probably never would, down to the fact they're a little small for me.
I think it's a positive move forward from their current dated shape.

The 1.2l turbo engine's do not have any problems right now. They had issues with the spark plugs, with a lower octane gas the rumble was to high and the spark plugs started breaking. If you had luck you had to change the spark plugs only, worst case was to replace the intake and exhaust valves on the cylinder which had not compresion. (cars with waranty got a new engine if the spark plug broke) the problem is fixed now with new spark plugs. The GPF (gasoline particle filter) might be a problem tho on the new €6.2 engine. We had no problems with it at the garage im working at yet.

I think it looks ok , seat Ibiza rings a bell for the rear but that's not a bad thing.
But over £26k for the electric one is astronomical. Would love to go electric but at these prices i,m a few years off.

As the old saying goes "The important thing is not the looks, but what's inside is what matter".

Honestly, i dont care if it looks good, if it's just a French car underneeth.

My next car will certainly not be a vauxhall for that very reason.

I think a lot of VX owners have been bitten by this "French bug" , I fully understand why owners won't be buying another VX.
2001 & 2002 I mistakenly bought a 206 then traded it in for a 307 which lasted 200 miles ! Peugeot took it back as had a list of faults as long as your arm and refunded in full. Moved onto ford,VX and seat after that.

Looks nice enough but I think the new Fiesta ST is my next car.

Fantastic choice Scotty , saw one yesterday in white and loved it , makes my old 3 yr old ST look a bit dated !
