Chevrolet Corsica


1993 Chevrolet Corsica

1993 Chevrolet Corsica
The Corsica was altered only slightly for 1993 and carried on
with just one body style and trim level.

The 1993 Chevrolet Corsica was a virtual repeat of the 1992 model year, bowing with only minor changes -- none of them visual.

A shift interlock was added to models with automatic transmission, which prevented shifting out of Park unless the driver's foot was on the brake. All Corsicas also got a low-oil-level warning light this year.

Otherwise, it was business as usual. The lone LT trim level came standard with a 110-horsepower 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, with a 140-horsepower 3.1-liter V-6 optional. Both utilized port fuel injection and came standard with a five-speed manual transmission, offering a three-speed automatic as an option.

Available on V-6-equipped Corsicas was the Z52 sport Handling Package, which added alloy wheels with 205/60R16 tires (in place of standard 185/75R14), a sport steering wheel, sport suspension, and body-side moldings with red inserts.

Prices were up by about $400 (base price now $11,395), but the Corsica remained a good value, being one of the few sedans in its class to offer a driver-side air bag, anti-lock brakes, and available V-6 power.

A fully equipped 1993 Corsica listed for less than $16,000,
undercutting most comparable imports.
