The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You’ll find a good range of adjustment, in both reach and height, to the steering wheel and driver's seat, so you should be able to find a comfortable driving position. The only notable omission is lumbar adjustment. Range-topping Ultimate Nav trim even offers a driver’s seat massage function – a luxury feature that’s unusual in the small car class.

The air conditioning is controlled via physical buttons and knobs, making it less distracting to operate on the move than the 208’s system, which is controlled through the infotainment touchscreen. That said, the way the Corsa’s air-conditioning controls are recessed into the dashboard below the infotainment screen makes them less immediately visible than the Fiesta’s.

Every Corsa has bright LED headlights and daytime running lights, with SRi trim adding LED fog lights. Matrix adaptive LED headlights are available on higher trims (these can shape their light output to avoid dazzling other road users while full beam is selected – an impressive feature that’s rare in this class).

Sat nav and infotainment

A 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system comes as standard with a DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB sockets and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The latter bypasses Vauxhall's own software and uses your smartphone's instead. That means you can use a number of its features, including Google Maps and Waze navigation apps, via the car’s screen, even on trim levels without in-built navigation. It's particularly handy because Vauxhall's infotainment software isn’t particularly responsive.
