Have you noticed that the British customers are getting lots of cool special editions lately? And if you needed some more proof, Vauxhall has just revealed the Corsa VXR Blue Edition. Featuring new styling details, an additional kit as standard, and a head-turning paint job, the new edition is priced at £19,425.
The new VRX Blue Edition is distinguished by Arden Blue metallic paint, 18-inch alloys, dark-tinted glass, bespoke interior air vents and Recaro seats. It also gets new ‘Eagle-Eye’ headlamps, and a signature bar across the grille, colored in blue. There are deep in-set fog lamps, a wider and more prominent grille and a low, sculpted front spoiler to boost its sporting appeal.
The same blue theme is also continued on the interior. There is stitching on the leather steering-wheel, the interior air-vent color, and the trim on the Recaro seats.
Under the hood there is a 1.6 liter Turbo engine that delivers 192 HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 140 mph.
The large car craze in the United States is at the end of its life cycle, at least we hope. Gas prices are still a bit high, but they will need to rise just a bit more in order to really bring the small car back into our thoughts again.
That being said, some of the most popular cars on the market today were once considered way too small to be safe. Take the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris for example. The three-door Yaris is a pretty popular car, but many still find it to be the size of a shoebox rather than the size of a proper car. The Fit is a little bigger, but Americans still find it a bit too small for their tastes. Maybe the seats just aren’t wide enough.
Modern safety laws and design have helped these small cars earn five-star safety ratings, but size still matters in some people’s minds. It’s going to take a few very special small cars, and even a few minivans and wagons, to shake America’s love with large, oversized vehicles. Here are the top ten cars that aren’t available in the United States.

The British School of Motoring, Britain’s largest driving school is giving prospective drivers a much-needed assistance by acquiring a brand-new fleet of Fiat 500s to replace its old Vauxhall Corsa line-up
You might wonder why these Fiat 500s would be a boon to student driver when all you have to do is, well, to not crash the car. Well, studies have shown that one of the hardest parts of a driving test is parallel parking, which we figure the Fiat 500 won’t have any problems with that.
