Following the introduction of a revised Corsa range, Vauxhall has added a special edition of the powerful VXR hot hatch.

The Corsa VXR Blue Edition gets its name from the standard Arden Blue exterior paint finish, while inside there are further touches of blue, such as the stiching on the leather steering wheel and on the air vents.

There are more treats on the inside too, as the Blue Edition comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, tinted glass and supportive Recaro seats, and saves 445 over selecting these options seperately.

Under the skin the VXR Blue Edition retains the poweful 1.6-litre turbocharged engine that delivers 189bhp, enough to propel it to 60mph from rest in 6.8 seconds and on to 140mph.

The Corsa VXR Blue Edition is on sale from February with a price tag of 19,245, including 20% VAT.
