    My car

    This is the undiscovered secret of the Corsa range. I have had mine for 11,000 miles and the average fuel consumption is 61.3.

    I set out to buy the cheapest, fastest, most economical and easiest run car I could. I bought it for £9875. It has roughly the real-world performance of a golf pd130, I know as my friend has one, though not quite as fast after about 80mph. There is no difference up to then, but it is a lot sharper around the corners.

    I have not seen another so it is quite exclusive. It has to be worth £5 per week on hp over a 1.2 SXi and there is room for four.

    My car

    I bought this as a second car for my wife it is a good run around if a little underpowered.

    Previouse car Punto - no comparison. Corsa has less road noise and is better built. Enough said.

    My car

    OK, it's a small car, but you suggest it's "cramped for taller drivers". How much room do people need? I'm 6 ft 3 ins tall, and I weigh around 23 stone, and I love driving it. It's my wife's car, and I drove an MPV until recently, but I comfortably drove the Corsa from Falmouth to Leeds last summer, with only a 20 minute stop My only gripe is that the CD player could be louder, but I am an ageing rocker.
