2017 Vauxhall Corsa Review


It constantly lives in the shadow of the best-selling Ford Fiesta, but the Vauxhall Corsa remains a huge seller. With a replacement due in 2018, how does the current generation model fare against a plethora of ultra-competitive superminis such as the Skoda Fabia, Citroen C3 and Nissan Micra?


Body Style: Supermini       Seats: 5              MRP from £9,720 - £19,060 


Did you know? The first-generation Corsa was badged the ‘Nova’ in the UK as ‘Corsa’ sounded too much like ‘coarser'

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Verdict: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (6.8/10)

The Vauxhall Corsa is a convincing package, and you can see why it’s such a popular car in the UK. It represents great value for money, particularly if you choose some of the added-value special-trim models, although competitors such as the new Nissan Micra and Citroen C3 offer a bit more character in a tough segment.
