Which used Vauxhall Corsa hatchback should I buy?

The Corsa has a fine range of engines, but the smallest, the three-cylinder 1.0-litre and four-cylinder 1.2-litre petrols, stand out. Neither makes the Corsa particularly quick, but they more than make up for any lack of pace with their willingness to rev and fine fuel economy.

The 1.7-litre diesel which was originally fitted is disappointing, particularly for refinement. However, the 1.3-litre CDTi engine which joined the range in 2004 is much better. It's still quite rare and expensive, though
