What used Vauxhall Corsa hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for this latest Corsa start at around £11,000 for a 2020 Corsa, depending on trim, which represents a good saving on the price of a new one. Spend between £11,000 and £13,000 on one of the higher spec models, and £13,000 to £15,000 on a 2021 model. Spend a little more on used 2022 cars. You'll need in excess of £24,000 for a Corsa-e.
How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Corsa hatchback?
All conventionally powered Corsas will pay road tax at the flat rate fee, currently £155 a year.
Insurance and servicing
The Corsa scores here by being in low insurance groups. Groups range from 10 up to 24 for the electric Corsa-e.
You can pay a fixed-price fee for interim, main and major services, with costs depending on whether your Corsa has a petrol or diesel engine. Service costs are £160, £265 and £305 for petrol models and £170, £295 and £335 for diesel models respectively.
If you can't pay it all on the day, you can spread the cost by sorting out a monthly plan depending upon your annual mileage and age of Corsa.
The Corsa-e is covered by a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty, while its battery gets an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
According to Euro NCAP, the Corsa achieves four stars out of five in its latest safety tests. That’s not brilliant; it lost points for doing a poor job at protecting front and rear seat passengers against whiplash. Thankfully, automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assistance, and a driver drowsiness monitoring system come as standard. If you also want blind-spot monitoring, you'll need to look for an Elite Nav.
