Vauxhall has provided its first teaser for the fourth generation Vauxhall Corsa.

The published image focuses on the upcoming model’s IntelliLux headlights, which are the first full-LED, adaptive headlights to be fitted to any car in its class, according to Vauxhall.

When in use, the lights automatically adapt based on traffic, so instead of having to manually dip your headlights when an oncoming vehicle comes in to view, the headlights cut it out of the area of illumination. This ensure that the Corsa driver doesn’t have to sacrifice visibility, while the oncoming driver doesn’t suffer any glare.

The Corsa will also receive an EV variant when it goes on sale later this year; it will be the first time that a. This is the second passenger vehicle to be confirmed for electrification by Vauxhall this year, following on from the Grandland X plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Two commercial vehicles will also receive electric motors this year.

Stephen Norman, Vauxhall’s group managing director, said: “As a British Brand since 1903, in fact, Britain’s oldest car Brand, Vauxhall has always been known for bringing cutting-edge technology to the mainstream, at an affordable price.

“And with the all-new Corsa, we’re doing it not once, but twice, by electrifying the UK’s best-known supermini, and adding lighting technology normally only found in premium cars.”

The fourth-generation Corsa will inherit one of the most popular badges in the country, with over 2.1 million sold since it debuted in 1993. It has also sold well in Europe – badged as an Opel – where 13.5 million have left the forecourt to date.

The impending arrival of the new Corsa will mean plentiful deals on nearly-new examples of the outgoing version – check here to see what’s available on the market today!
