What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For There are lots to choose from, and prices are good. It's also quite distinctive

Against Many rivals drive better, and cabin space and standard equipment are limited

Verdict It's smart, cheap and has good engines, but is below par in too many areas

Go for… 1.0 Life

Avoid… Easytronic cars/1.7-litre diesel

Vauxhall Corsa Hatchback
  • 1. There have been a few steering rack problems
  • 2. Make sure that the cambelts have been replaced every 40,000 miles
  • 3. Interior is small, but it's well put together
  • 4. Boot is good for the car's size, but the rear seats don't fold completely flat
