It is produced exclusively for the European and Australian markets and is also known as the Vauxhall Corsa and the Holden Barina. The GSi model is the high-performance trim.


The second-generation, three-door, five-passenger Corsa B is 146.8 inches long, 63.3 inches wide, 55.9 inches high and 96.2 inches in wheelbase. This produces a length-to-wheelbase ratio of 1.53 to 1, a passenger space of 170.57 cubic feet, a cargo capacity of 9.18 cubic feet, an estimated frontal area of 21.1 square feet and a drag coefficient of 0.35. 165/80-R13 tires are fitted throughout.

The four-cylinder inline engine has four valves per cylinder in double overhead camshaft (DOHC) configurations. An engine displacement of 97.5 cubic inches and a unitary capacity of 24.378 cubic inches per cylinder is derived from a bore and stroke of 3.11 and 3.21 inches. The engine is controlled by a front-wheel drive, five-speed manual transmission.


A new Opel Corsa B GLi in 1993 had a top speed of 121mph and an acceleration of zero to 62mph in 9.5 seconds.
