Which used Vauxhall Corsa hatchback should I buy?

1.4-litre petrols, or the 89bhp 1.0-litre turbo are perhaps the best ones to go for. The normally-aspirated 1.4 has the greatest number of examples available and in 89bhp form is the best compromise of purchase price, economy and performance.

But if you need more performance and your budget can stretch to it, go for the 1.0-litre turbo car. While it produces the same power as the 1.4-litre, the smaller engine has a six-speed gearbox and produces an extra 26 lb ft of torque, which not only makes it a more relaxed engine for cruising, but also drops the 0-62mph time to 11.9 seconds: more than adequate for a small car.

When it comes to trim levels, avoid Life as it doesn’t even come with seat height adjustment and Sting because it doesn’t have air-conditioning. If you spend a little more to get an SRi, you will get sporty looking trim, 60/40 split folding seat and the 7.0 inch Intellilink screen.

If you want to get into a really posh Corsa, look at the Excite trim, as you can get heated front seats and a heated steering wheel – perfect for cold winter mornings.
