Vauxhall has added its IntelliLink and OnStar systems to its Corsa supermini.
IntelliLink adds a USB and Bluetooth interface for smartphones to the car's infotainment system, allowing drivers to make hands-free phone calls and use the smartphone's interface on the vehicle's seven-inch screen.
The system is offered as standard on all models excluding the Sting and Sting R trim levels.
OnStar, meanwhile, is standard on SE, Limited, Black Edition, Red Edition and VXR models. The feature turns the car into a wifi hotspot, and also offers extra services including roadside assistance and vehicle diagnostic services.
