    My car

    I've driven several Corsas as hire cars. The 1.2 Club is adequate for performance and the handling is excellent.

    The two Clubs I've driven both suffered from relatively high road noise which caused a hard-to-live-with resonance that became very tiring. The Design and SXI do not have this problem. I suggest you test drive one thoroughly on the roads you use regularly, or perhaps try one with the optional alloy wheels.

    Incidentally I think the 1.4 petrol or 1.3 diesel (90bhp) are excellent in Design or SXI trim.

    My car

    I have owned my Corsa since Jan 2007 brand new, and have done 38,000 miles in it without a blip!

    It's a fantastic car, gets better and better as the miles pile on. Gears were very stiff to begin with, but they definitely wear in as the miles pile on.

    Vauxhall and the dealership are both excellent.

    My car

    wasnt a great fan of the corsa TILL i seen the new model, what an eye catcher especially in black and a test drive is a must, thats what sold it for me. the speed sensative power steering takes a little bit of getting used to, but a dream to park, and so cheap to run,if you want a fun car to drive this is it. some of the reviews say there is poor visability, never caused me any problems at all and i traded in my clio for this, the new clio has no va va voom compared to this, and the safety features are excellent, so C'mon take one for a test drive

    My car

    I'm not surprised that the Corsa is What Car's Car of the Year. We took delivery of a 1.2 Club a few weeks ago and we're delighted with it. Everything about the car makes you feel that the design team really thought about what they were trying to achieve; this is anything but just another mass produced box.

    The car looks great all round, the interior is fitted out with high quality materials, it's well equipped and the ride is amazingly refined and comfortable. The car has impressed us so much that another family member has ordered on!
