For Spacious, well-priced and with generous standard equipment on most trims, and a broad range of engines, including a very refined and efficient three-cylinder with low CO2 emissions.

Against Some rivals, notably the VW Polo, hold their value better; the infotainment system is fiddly, and handling could be sharper.

Vauxhall Corsa Hatchback
44 5stars

Pick carefully from the Corsa range and you can have a really recommendable small car. It’s not quite best in class, but it’s a cheap company car and affordable private buy, and pleasant to live with.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The 1.0 three-cylinder and 1.4 turbocharged petrol engines are the easiest to recommend. The 1.0 is refined and flexible, and quite fast in higher-powered guise, while the 1.4 turbo is also pretty rapid and cheaper – if not as refined – as the 1.0 models. Avoid the very basic trims that lack air-con, or top-end SE which is too expensive, and you can’t go too far wrong. Excite or SRi will be best for most private buyers; they both get air-con, a colour touch-screen, multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth, digital radio, USB input, alloy wheels, and automatic lights and wipers. However, Excite can’t be bought with the low-powered 1.0 or the 1.4T. SRi can be had with our favoured engines at a price that looks good value, and it adds a 60/40 split rear bench, cruise control, leather steering wheel and sports seats. Company car users will be better off going for Design, which is cheaper than SRi but does without alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, and sports seats.
