On this day in auto history – April 2nd

Fri 2nd Apr 2021

It was on this day in 1993 that Vauxhall officially launched the all-new Corsa to the UK market.

Ushered in to replace the popular but ageing Vauxhall Nova, the Corsa quickly proved a sales hit due to its modern styling and curving which was a step up from its supermini rivals of the day.

A new generation Corsa launched in October 2000 proved even more popular and, for a three-year period during the mid-noughties, the Corsa was outselling his perennial supermini rival, the Ford Fiesta.

Further major facelifts have provided the Corsa with an enduring appeal and, having sold close to 2 million units, it is currently the fifth biggest-selling car ever in the UK.
