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 can stretch your budget slightly, we’d recommend going for the mid-range GS Line trim. If you do, you’ll be getting lots of standard equipment, including 17in alloy wheels, electronic climate controls, rear-parking sensors, LED front fog lights, automatic high-beam, a sport mode switch, a 7.0in digital instrument cluster, electronically adjustable/heated wing mirrors and some sportier styling elements.

This mid-range engine is our pick of the bunch. With a little extra power (99bhp), it’s more willing to pull from low in the rev range and accelerates from 0-60mph in 9.3sec. For that reason, it’s far more flexible than the entry-level engine and more at home during motorway jaunts. Bear in mind that opting for the automatic gearbox adds almost a second to that sprint time.
