What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Corsa hatchback?

The Vauxhall’s chief rival has long been the Ford Fiesta, so if you’re looking at the Corsa then it’s worth considering the Ford, too. It’s more enjoyable to drive, but the Corsa feels classier inside.

There’s a slew of Japanese rivals, including the Mazda 2 and Toyota Yaris, while the Seat Ibiza, Skoda Fabia and VW Polo are also worth considering. However, we’d still be tempted by the value and all-round ability of the Corsa.**
