For
The new Vauxhall Corsa has just been unveiled so there are big savings to be had on the outgoing model.

We named the Corsa our Car of the Year when it came out because of its impressive mixture of comfort and driving dynamics. Buyers will be reassured by Vauxhall’s lifetime warranty and low running costs.

The 1.4 Design is our pick of the range because its engine has the right blend of performance, economy and refinement. Design trim brings audio controls on the steering wheel, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, chrome interior detailing and electric front windows. It also has air-conditioning as standard.

Big savings can be had elsewhere in the range if you don’t need as much performance or require more economy. You can save up to £4405 on a 1.3 CDTi Ecoflex SXi 5dr, and its claimed average economy of 67.3mpg will keep down your bills at the pumps.

Against
The used market is flooded with Corsas so it’s unlikely you’ll get a good resale price for the car. That will only get worse once the new model arrives.

The smaller engines struggle to keep the car up to pace on the motorway and the more powerful diesels are not especially refined.

The Corsa was rated as below average for reliability in the JD Power survey and stability control is only available as an option.

Should I add any options?
The Design specification contains most of the kit you’ll need, including MP3 audio compatibility, air-conditioning and electric mirrors.

It might be worth adding stability control for added peace of mind, but whatever your requirements there will probably be savings on the model you go for.
