Vauxhall Corsa Review

November 5, 2015

After the Vauxhall Corsa went head to head with the Astra in our Car Wars Wednesday piece, we decided it was time to get up close and personal with this stylish and affordable supermini to see just what it is that impresses so many UK buyers.

Fasten your seatbelts and join us for an in-depth Vauxhall Corsa review and find out all you need to know about one of Britain’s most popular small cars – and if you’re interested in exploring Vauxhall Corsa finance options, we can help there, too.


As one of Vauxhall’s long-standing productions, the Corsa’s design has changed very little over the years, but some recent tweaks in 2014 have brought it up to date with style trends – adding sweeping headlights, a sportier stance and smooth lines. The choice of 3 or 5 door models means you can decide on a compact and sportier look or more spacious and practical ride, depending on your needs.

Inside the cabin, Vauxhall have really upped their game, with soft-touch materials, bags of space and storage throughout – as well as a modern dashboard which gives the interior an upmarket vibe. With a 283 litre boot that rivals the Ford Fiesta, there’s bags of room for your weekly shop.


There are trim choices aplenty with the Vauxhall Corsa, with all cars coming with a decent amount of standard kit – even the entry-level model comes with remote central locking, LED daytime running lights, a six speaker stereo, cruise control, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity.

If you’re in the market for a more sporty ride with some eye-catching alloys, opt for the Sting or Sting R. The Design trim brings a touch more luxury to everyday driving, with a leather steering wheel, front fog lights, air conditioning and the high-tech IntelliLink system.

Performance & Handling

Thanks to recent changes, the Corsa is now a sturdy build and provides a quiet and comfortable ride – thanks to soft suspension and easy handling.

As with the trims, there’s also an array of petrol and diesel engines on offer. For petrol heads, we strongly recommend the 113bhp 1.0 litre turbo engine, which is refined, efficient and punchy – getting from 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds.

If more mileage and excellent economy are priorities, there’s a choice of a three 1.3 litre engines – which are all fitted with ecoFLEX and claim to return 70mpg as well as emitting just 100g/km, making them tax free.
