Replacing the Chevrolet Citation came the Chevrolet Corsica, a front-wheel drive car produced by General Motors from 1987 to 1996. The name of this car actually has a pretty funny origin, and it is not exactly one that General Motors wanted buyers to know about. The Corsica was originally to be called Citation, but because of poor sales due to problems with early Citations General Motors decided that it would be better to hide the vehicle under another name and thus the alias was born. This car in disguise was built upon the L-body platform, which it shared with the 2-door Beretta, and the renamed Pontiac Tempest, which was more or less the same car, sold in Canada.

The Corsica was available in a number of options for the daring consumer who either didn’t know about the rebadging or who actually believed the original problems had been fixed. Two styles and four trims were on the menu. It was sold only as a 4-door sedan, but it was also available as a 5-door hatchback from the wonderful years of 1989 to 1991. These pieces of work were coming out of plants in Wilmington, Delaware and Linden, New Jersey. Oddly enough, given its history, the Corsica and Beretta were the second best-selling cars in America in 1988. It seems as if General Motors was correct in rebadging the vehicle because buyers didn’t seem to notice the similarities between the Corsica and the previous problem car. In 1989, the hatchback was introduced along with a LTZ performance package. The performance package would get the driver many suspension parts from the Beretta. Even more rare and little remembered was the XT trim, which included all the performance parts from the LTZ trim in addition to a leather interior and a special body kit. The body kit and spoiler package were not designed by GM but by a third party supplier.Use our car shipping cost calculator, which we created first, and learn about the  Chevrolet Corsica by going here.
