Key Facts

Now in its fourth iteration, the Corsa has always been about simple, low-frills motoring. It’s good value, reliable and cheap to insure. Although it’s available in sportier options, it’s generally not the car of choice for people who want a lot of grunt under the bonnet or status on the streets. Nevertheless, it excels where it needs to: hitting the road day after day.

Why buy a Vauxhall Corsa?

Because it’s a good car at a good price. Yours isn’t likely to outperform bigger engines in traffic light drag races, but it’s not supposed to. Mainly intended for sensible people to do sensible things in, you’ll get good fuel economy and should see a low tax bill, all without feeling like you’ve sacrificed on quality and value, where it performs admirably.

The latest model, released in 2014, combines everything thousands have loved about the Corsa for years with sleek, updated bodywork and a renewed interior. Fortunately, the previous versions haven’t aged badly if you’re considering a pre-’14 model. The Corsa is reliable to boot, being built to last for year after year.

Which Vauxhall Corsa is right for me?

Latest Range


An all-rounder: Vauxhall Corsa SE

An all-rounder: Vauxhall Corsa SE

If you want a Corsa with mod-cons like air conditioning at a lower price point, you need to be asking after the Design. This is where the balance between extra kit and price hits a sweet spot in the Corsa range. Just like the rest of the models, it has cruise control straight off the assembly line – something that’s ever more appealing with all those average speed checks on Britain’s motorways. What’s more, the SE model even comes with a heated steering wheel and heated seats, the former not even found in the most prestigious cars.

The sporty one: Vauxhall Corsa SRi

The sporty one: Vauxhall Corsa SRi

It’s got a lowercase ‘i’ in the name, which can only mean one thing: it’s the sporty version. The SRi’s ‘boy racer’ charms mean it’s probably not the set of wheels you want for the school run (since when did sports seats and a small brood of children ever play nice?). However, it means you can turn heads if you want to, especially if you opt for the SRi VX-Line, thanks to its sharper body kit and 17-inch alloys.

If you like luxuries: Vauxhall Corsa SE

If you like luxuries: Vauxhall Corsa SE

Even though it’s not the most expensive in the range, this is where you come if you want a Corsa with a little luxury but a sensible exterior (the LE has the tarty body kit and commands higher prices). This version is all about comfort, which of course comes at a cost, but it’s still pretty reasonable.

For the thrifty thrill seeker: Vauxhall Corsa SXi

For the thrifty thrill seeker: Vauxhall Corsa SXi

Although the SXi was phased out in 2014 when the Corsa range was revamped, its looks, on-board kit and sporty feel haven’t dated much. The extra equipment you can expect to find includes front fog lights, sports seats and a CD multichanger. Despite being sporty, it’s also cheap and practical too, with some 2010 models selling for a shade under £5,000 and the boot being bigger than that of the rival Ford Fiesta.

The Fast One: Vauxhall Corsa VXR

The Fast One: Vauxhall Corsa VXR

Although not as high-tech as the likes of the Ford Fiesta ST, the Corsa VXR offers more power for less money, with its 1.6 turbocharged engine delivering 192bhp. If the Clubsport Special Edition takes your fancy, that one has been tuned to 205bhp. Unfortunately, it’s not the most fuel efficient compared to its rivals; achieving only 37mpg combined and road tax is an eye-watering £230. 

What are the Alternatives?

A little more panache: Renault Clio

A little more panache: Renault Clio

The Clio screams urban chic, which is what you might expect from a Renault. Some of the sportier models in the range are a match for the equivalent Corsas, but in some areas, they can be a little pricier than the norm in this class. The five-door Clios aren’t quite as roomy as Corsas, while they’re a tad more expensive to insure.

Quick without the cost: Seat Ibiza

Quick without the cost: Seat Ibiza

One of the sportiest of its type, the Ibiza has a lot to offer for such a minimal price tag. However, it doesn’t do the basics quite as well as the Corsa, such as being cheap to insure, but the differences are minimal.

For driving around busy town centres, the Ibiza can make every trip fun, although only the sportier models in the range have enough grunt to scale uphill roads and push on motorways without feeling the strain.

Its closest rival: Ford Fiesta

Its closest rival: Ford Fiesta

The leader of the pack in its class, the Ford Fiesta is synonymous with low-cost yet comfortable driving. Beloved by drivers as much as it is the motoring press, you can’t go far wrong with a Fiesta, whether you choose its latest version, which went into production in 2008, or a later model.

Known as being nimble and fun to drive, it looks good enough not to show you up when you pull into the office car park, although it might not be the set of wheels to attract longing glances as you roll past a crowded beer garden on a summer’s evening.
