- New Vauxhall Corsa wins Connected Car Award in the small and compact car category
- Real-time navigation updates, generous standard equipment and Vauxhall Connect with emergency eCall service make new Corsa an extremely attractive small car option
Luton – Vauxhall has once again collected a prominent award for its all-new Corsa, receiving the Connected Car Award 2019 in the small and compact car category.
Voted for by readers of leading German car magazine, Auto Bild, and its sister technology title, Computer Bild, the Connected Car Award recognises technological innovation within the automotive industry.
The fifth-generation Vauxhall Corsa was praised for its excellent connectivity, including a minimum 7-inch touchscreen as standard. With a comprehensive range of infotainment configurations at their fingertips, Vauxhall Corsa drivers benefit from convenient real-time navigation updates and live traffic information to keep drivers on the move. At the touch of a button, Vauxhall Connect’s eCall feature will connect you with a trained advisor and automatically alert the emergency services in event of an incident.
The new Corsa is the latest in a number of Connected Car Awards won by the manufacturer in recent years, with the Insignia and Vivaro favoured by readers in previous competitions.
One of the most hotly anticipated new cars to go on sale last year, the new Corsa was crowned ‘Best Buy Car of Europe 2020’ by AUTOBEST in December of last year. Offered with a range of powertrain options, new Corsa benefits from reduced fuel consumption, refinement and flexibility across its high-efficiency petrol and diesel engines.
Delivering advancements in safety, comfort and convenience, the new Corsa is equipped with numerous advanced driver assistance systems, such as Lane Departure warning with Lane Assist, Forward Collision Alert and Driver Drowsiness System to support the driver and reduce the risk of an accident. The class-leading Corsa is also available with Vauxhall’s revolutionary IntelliLux LED headlights, while Android Auto and Apple CarPlay feature as standard in the car’s line-up of infotainment systems.
