The Corsa is a supermini designed and produced by Vauxhall (Opel) since 1993, it replaced the ageing Vauxhall Nova. In 2006 Vauxhall released the current model Corsa, the next year What Car? Awarded it the 2007 "Car of The Year".
The Vauxhall Corsa in Cumbria is available with a choice of seven engines, three petrol engines and four diesels. The petrol range consists of a 1.0 litre, a 1.2 litre and a 1.4 litre, the diesel range includes the 1.3 litre CDTi and 1.7 litre CDTI. The Corsa VXR comes with a 1.6 litre petrol engine.
The Corsa is available in two suspension set ups; the standard one makes the car's ride soft and comfortable but comprising on handling and body roll. The firmer suspension set up which is available on the SRI and SXI models is firmer and provides greater cornering ability.
As a supermini great things are not expected when it comes to cabin refinement, but the Corsa delivers, everything feels very well put together. Most of the engine line ups are very quiet and smooth around town as well as motorways. It has been reported that the five-door body stirs up more wind noise than the three-door.
The entry level Vauxhall Corsa costs £9,995, for that you will get the 1.0 ecoFLEX expression, for the 1.6 litre VXRacing you are looking at £19,220. Whichever model you go for the Corsa is well refined, comfortable and great to drive. Now with Vauxhall's lifetime guarantee it really is difficult to look elsewhere.
