And now there’s good news for motorists in Maidstone and Guildford, as local retailer, FG Barnes, is proud to unveil one of the most hotly-anticipated new cars on the market, the all-new fifth generation Corsa.
For motorists looking to upgrade their current vehicle, the all-new Corsa features a range of high-efficiency petrol and diesel powertrains. Not only that, the latest Vauxhall Corsa boasts reduced fuel consumption, flexibility and refinement as key characteristics of all powertrain options, with the new Corsa offering less CO2 emissions versus the outgoing model.
On top of fantastic fuel consumption, the all-new Corsa has achieved a significant weight loss, with the new model weighing in from just 980kg. Thanks to its lightweight design, the new Corsa weighs up to 108kg less than the outgoing model, so benefits from improved performance handling and increased efficiency.
The new Corsa is the perfect Vauxhall for city and suburban driving as it strikes the ideal balance between low fuel consumption and driving excitement. For enhanced safety, the new Corsa features advanced driver assistance systems as standard, such as Lane Departure warning with Lane Keep Assist (for the first time on the Corsa), Speed Sign Recognition and Automatic Emergency City Braking.
Sporting a range of new infotainment systems, the fifth-generation Corsa offers relaxed driving and ultimate connectivity for Maidstone and Guildford motorists. The Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi both feature a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen, while the top-of-the-range Multimedia Navi Pro includes a HD 10.0-inch colour touchscreen. Angled slightly toward the driver, each system is perfectly positioned and clearly displayed in the instrument panel. The Multimedia systems are compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and feature control via integrated voice recognition.
Bala Waran, Operations Director at FG Barnes, comments: “We strive to be able to provide Kent and Surrey customers with the very best motors the Vauxhall range has to offer, and the new Corsa is no exception. The fifth-generation model offers high levels of safety, comfort and driving dynamics, without compromising on the ‘fun-to-drive’ qualities expected of the Vauxhall brand.
“If you’re interested in taking the New Corsa out for a test drive, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team here at FG Barnes.”
In addition to the launch of the high-efficiency petrol and diesel models of the new Corsa, an all-electric Corsa-e, the first-ever electric Corsa with a 209 mile range**, is set to arrive at the FG Barnes Vauxhall showroom next year.
