The new engine produces 120PS and maximum torque of 175Nm starting at 1,750rpm. The latest addition to the Corsa range has a top speed of 121mph and hits 0-60mph in 9.7 seconds. Fuels consumption is 51.4mpg and CO2 emissions are as low as 129g/km.
Initially available in a limited production run of 500 units, in both 3- and 5-door body styles, the Black Edition is based on the Corsa Limited Edition and along with the 120PS engine gains a black logo bar and a new 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.
A raft of sporty styling features including body-coloured front lower spoiler, side sills, rear lower skirt and rear spoiler turn the Black Edition into one of the sleekest Corsas yet. Its looks are enhanced still further with front fog lights, dark style headlights and tail lights and dark tinted rear- and rearside windows.
Inside, sports seats, a leather-covered steering wheel, sports pedals, silver interior seat stitching and matt chrome air vent surrounds set the Black Edition apart from all other Corsas. For those who wish to go even further upmarket, there is a broad range of innovative extras not offered by competitors such as the Touch and Connect infotainment system, climate control and adaptive forward lighting.
