Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Corsa looks dated next to the current generation of flash small cars, but everything works as you’d expect and you can find your way around the controls without the handbook. The seat offers a decent level of adjustment and it’s fairly easy to find a comfortable driving position. The slender windscreen pillar aids visibility at junctions, while parking is made a simple task by the car’s diminutive dimensions and excellent rear view.

Fine in the front, but seats could be better on the base models. Not much room in the back, especially in the three door but getting in and out is straightforward.
