Types of Vauxhall Nova for sale in the UK

The first batch of the Vauxhall Nova introduced in the market was a three-door hatchback and two-door saloon model. The basic trim level incorporated a 1.0L, 1.2L, or 1.3L I-4 engine. The upgraded SR model includes a spoiler that surrounds the rear window. It is also distinguished by alloy wheels, checkered sports seats, and a more powerful engine. Later models included a fuel-injection 1.2L and 1.3L engines.

In 1987, Vauxhall Nova underwent a facelift with an updated interior and slight changes in instrumentation. Two years later, manufacturers offered a 1.4L engine. The design was further refreshed in 1990 when new bumpers, headlights, a grille, and the interior were custom-designed for a bolder look. At the end of the '80s, a five-door hatchback and a four-door Nova saloon for sale were introduced. Depending on the configuration, a 1.6L engine was also used in the later version, including a three-door van.

What are different sports models for Vauxhall Nova?

Despite the fact that Nova cars were mainly intended for the consumer market, rare sports models were introduced in 1985. These models are easily distinguished by their white colour and vinyl decals. A replacement rear silencer, a powerful 13SB engine, and other luxuries were introduced for the British Rally Championship. These customisations powered the Vauxhall Nova to a top speed of 180 km/h in 8.9 seconds.

In 1987, another similar model, the GSi, was released for the consumer market. Revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it was equipped with a multi-point fuel-injected engine that was able to achieve speeds of 183km/h. Sometimes, the GSi model is also sold as a Nova GTE for sale. An SRi model, which was mechanically similar in design was also available for UK buyers.

Are the Corsa A and the Vauxhall Nova different cars?

Technically, both the Corsa A and the Vauxhall Nova are the same cars. Outside the United Kingdom, the Vauxhall Nova was known as the Corsa A, but the mechanical features, design, and models of both cars are identical. Due to the huge import tariffs in Spain, where the car was manufactured, designers had to introduce the car as the Vauxhall Nova in the UK. The success of the design was also the reason that a lot of European models found their way in the UK market.
