An incredibly popular model in the competitive supermini class, the Vauxhall Corsa has consistently remained one of the UK’s bestsellers for the past two decades. This is largely thanks to its competitive pricing, its practicality, affordable running costs and attractive styling. As an overall package, the Corsa is an ideal choice for those looking for a small run around and its popularity shows no signs of waning.
First time buyers are likely to be attracted to the affordability of this car – it’s well-priced, cheap to insure and cheap to run. A huge part of the appeal is its good fuel economy, for both petrol and diesel models. Plus, with so many engine sizes to choose from, you can find the perfect one to suit your requirements; we’d recommend the 1.3-litre diesel for those looking for the most frugal.
On the road, the Corsa is designed to be nippy for city driving and it is compact enough to allow you to park comfortably in small spaces. The standard kit that comes with the car includes USB connectivity, LED daytime running lights, cruise control and a multi-function steering wheel fitted.
Inside the cabin, there’s excellent head room and leg room and even tall passengers can fit in the back comfortably. With both three-door and five-door versions available, you can opt for the convenient extra doors if you know you’ll regularly have passengers in the back. In terms of safety, the Corsa has an impressive six airbags, electronic stability control, tyre pressure monitoring and ISOFIX, to ensure child safety.
So, it’s no wonder the Vauxhall Corsa is so popular amongst car owners in the UK – it ticks many boxes (especially for first time buyers) as it’s well-kitted, spacious, affordable and great for city driving.
