Pros & cons


Loads around, easy to drive


Dated compared to rivals, cheap interior

Written by Ben Wall Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


Corsa is a popular choice for young drivers and buyers looking for a low-cost, well-equipped and easy-to-drive small car. This version is the last incarnation of a car that started life in 1993 and had major facelifts in 2000 and 2003. It’s age was obvious by the time it was replaced in 2006, as newer rivals had roomier interiors, better handling and superior crash protection.

It’s an improvement over its predecessors, but there are a lot of similarly-priced and more modern alternatives offered by other manufacturers.
