What used Vauxhall Corsa hatchback will I get for my budget?
The Corsa is old enough for the earliest examples to have crept under the £1500 mark, so there’s plenty out there, regardless of your budget.
Closer to £2000 sees even greater choice, where you can afford to be picky and look for lower mileage, fewer owner examples.
The higher trim levels don’t attract too much of a premium, and there’s no real difference in prices between three and five-door models (the three-door actually has a bigger rear seat, even if access to it isn’t as good as in the five-door).
The cheapest VXRs are currently around £4,000, which is not much money for a lot of fun.
How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Corsa hatchback?
The Vauxhall Corsa is very competitive when it comes to running costs. That’s applicable to fuel consumption, road tax and consumables, which are all comparable with the very best of its rivals.
Likewise, the Corsa should be inexpensive to insure, while servicing can be undertaken by any local garage, meaning you can afford to shop around for the cheapest deals.
