The Vauxhall Corsa is a competent small car, but isn’t outstanding in any area. It's not as comfortable or as pleasant inside as the closely related Peugeot 208, not as fun to drive as a Ford Fiesta, nor as spacious as a Volkswagen Polo. It is at least well equipped and not too expensive in our recommended trim.

If you want to keep costs to a minimum, this entry-level trim will be tempting. It ticks all the basic boxes with standard equipment including 16in alloy wheels, air conditioning, LED headlights, electric windows, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

We’re yet to try the entry-level 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine but expect it’ll be a little sluggish. In fact, the numbers support that theory, sporting an official 0-60mph sprint time of 12.4sec. If you can, we’d suggest that you upgrade to the 1.2 Turbo petrol.
