Vauxhall has announced that it is to revive the Corsa SRi model after an absence of two years.
Describing the car as on the UK’s "best-love hot hatches", Vauxhall said that the new SRi will offer motorists a combination of "great looks and affordability".
The manufacturer expects the SRi to boost the appeal of the Corsa range, with two new specifications on offer – the 150PS turbo 1.6-litre engine and the 125PS 1.7 diesel.
Including a front spoiler, body-coloured side sills, alloy wheels, chrome sports exhaust pipe and a tailgate spoiler, the new model is also aimed to provide "incredible levels of driving excitement".
The petrol engine ensures the engine races from zero to 60mph on 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 130mph, while the diesel model delivers an "impressive" rate of zero to 60mph in 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 121mph.
In related news, Vauxhall recently reported that by the end of August it had sold 215,115 new cars so far this year.
