Those models on 16in or smaller wheels get soft suspension, which results in a bit of body float over high-speed undulations and quite a lot of body lean through tight bends. Still, there’s enough grip and the Corsa turns into corners keenly enough.
The firmer of the two suspension set-ups makes that turn-in a touch sharper, and reduces body lean through corners. Unfortunately, all Corsas have vague steering that’s inconsistently weighted and doesn’t give you much sense of what’s going on at the front wheels.
A ‘City’ button is standard on all Corsas, and brings super-light steering designed to assist with parking. It feels a bit unnecessary overall, but does make tight manoeuvres very easy.
Sadly, even the tweaks to the Corsa VXR can’t eradicate the vague steering, which makes it difficult to place the car in corners. That’s unforgivable on a hot hatchback.
