Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 32 - 65 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Comparatively long service intervals, cheap parts and reasonable reliability bode well for keeping running costs down. Economy is good from all models. Buyers who bought new originally will find that depreciation has been the biggest cost, although those who bought used shouldn’t be as concerned.

Corsa performs remarkably well on the eco front. With an average of 135 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are comparably low for a super mini hatchback. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.0-litre petrol, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is very frugal, averaging 50 mpg.

Reliability is generally good. Owners won’t have the same high expectations as those with Volkswagens, but popularity with car hire companies and driving schools suggests it holds together well enough.
