Review

The Vauxhall Corsa is a competent small car, but isn’t outstanding in any area. It isn’t as comfortable or as nice 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, if you stick to our recommended trim.

get the best price

Adds 17in alloy wheels, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers, climate control, electrically folding door mirrors, keyless entry and start to the features you get with SRi trim.

With 101bhp, it is very slightly stronger than the 1.2 100 petrol, and this is most noticeable from low revs. It provides more flexible in-gear performance for overtaking, but doesn't have the same ultimate pace and isn't as quick away from the traffic lights. It is roughly similar on pace to the Polo and Ibiza’s 1.6 TDI 95, and officially it will average over 70mpg.
