New 2023 Vauxhall Corsa facelift spied testing on the road11/28/2022
The facelifted Vauxhall Corsa will gain updates inside and out
An updated Vauxhall Corsa has been caught on the road for the first time, and judging by these latest images, we can expect it to come with a refreshed exterior design. The interior of the facelifted sixth-generation Corsa will also be revised for 2023 with new technology.
The current Corsa was the first Vauxhall produced after the acquisition of the brand by the now-parent company Stellantis Group – which decided to drop the old GM platform for its EMP1 architecture. The move enabled the Corsa to adopt an all-electric version which helped catapult the supermini to become Britain’s best-selling car.

The Corsa is one of the oldest designs within the Vauxhall lineup, however, and with this new facelift we expect it to take on the brand’s ‘Visor’ headlight and grille arrangement – something we’ve seen on the Mokka and Astra. The Grandland SUV was in a similar situation to the Corsa until it gained the Visor look during a facelift in 2021.
As with the Grandland’s mid-life update, changes will be kept to a minimum for the Corsa. From these spy shots we can see that aside from the new front end, it’ll be the same as before from the outside, potentially with a new rear light signature.
The engine lineup of the Corsa is also unlikely to be altered, so the range of 1.2-litre Puretech petrol units should continue with the facelifted model, along with manual and automatic transmissions. The all-electric Corsa-e will also return with a range of 222 miles – a figure that was upped from 209 miles in December 2021. Don’t expect the Corsa to gain a range to rival the new Jeep Avenger’s 249 miles as that car is built on Stellantis’ STLA platform.
The interior of the refreshed Corsa could see a hefty update in terms of technology. The current car offers a seven-inch touchscreen as standard with a 10-inch touchscreen as an option. We may see the 10-inch version become standard or even the latest Astra’s dual 10-inch touchscreen set up to make its way over to the Corsa.
The current Corsa kicks off at £18,015 in entry-level Design trim. With the updated model we should see Corsa prices starting nearer to £20,000 given the Astra above it has taken on a more premium market brief.
