The Vauxhall Corsa is a hard-to-beat supermini that delivers fun and great motoring. With its good looks, great engines and low running costs, there's a lot to like about this great little car.
The Vauxhall Corsa has a wide range of engines to choose from which may confuse potential owners but among the best choices would be the three-cylinder 1.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine which is not only cheap to run but offers plenty of zip as well. There are two power outputs, 90 bhp or 114 bhp, and should return economy of around 66 mpg; the Corsa's low weight enables the 1.0 litre engine to offer a surprisingly agile performance. For those who want more power, the turbocharged 1.4 litre petrol engine that produces 150 bhp offers brisk performance and economy of around 50 mpg. There are diesel engines available, the 1.3 litre unit is particularly good considering it returns 88 mpg with emissions of 85g/km.
The first thing to appreciate about the Vauxhall Corsa is that the latest revamp has delivered an excellent and well-designed interior that's also the quietest in its class; there's also a comfortable ride, accurate steering and nice grip that means it's good in corners.
The Corsa has plenty of equipment, barring the entry level model, which makes it an attractive choice for many which includes central locking, air conditioning and an impressive infotainment system which uses a 7-inch colour touchscreen that utilises the firm's IntelliLink system so it is possible to use it for Internet radio as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Other models come with a multifunction steering wheel and there's the option of Vauxhall's EcoFlex offering which boosts economy by having light alloy wheels, low rolling resistance tyres and stop-start technology.
For its size, there's plenty space in the Vauxhall Corsa with the boot being a useful 285 litres in size. It's also a comfortable car to drive, particularly around town and the light steering makes it easy to park as well. It's also a good performer on motorways with even the 1.0 litre engine performing well.
Essentially, the Vauxhall Corsa is one of the UK's best selling cars and for good reason; it's stylish and modern with a lot to offer owners with great performance and low running costs. For those in the market for a stylish and fun supermini, the Corsa should be on their shortlist.
