Here’s the thing about popularity: it isn’t always a sign of greatness. KFC may have more customers than Claridge’s, for instance, but that doesn’t mean its food is of a better quality.

So the fact that the Corsa is one of the best-selling small cars (usually behind only the Ford Fiesta in the sales charts) is great news for Vauxhall, but it shouldn’t be viewed as an automatic seal of approval if you’re looking for a new small car.

Nope: for that (or otherwise), you’ll need to read our 16-point review. Over the next few pages, we’ll tell you what the Corsa is like to sit in and drive, how practical it is and how it stacks up financially against its key rivals, including the Fiesta, Seat Ibiza, Skoda Fabia and Volkswagen Polo.

Big discounts are available across the Corsa range, so if you decide you want to buy one, make sure you check out our latest deals to find out how much you could save.
