The Corsa has proved itself a cost-effective and economical workhorse lately, with around 3,000 miles added to the clock since we took delivery. I’ve been averaging around 45-49mpg through my primarily short, local, journeys, but colleagues have achieved exceptionally strong fuel economy.
When the car arrived in March, petrol was around 5p per litre cheaper than diesel. With diesel now cheaper than petrol at the time of writing, the level of economy we’ve been achieving means that the Corsa still remains a low cost vehicle to fuel and run.
While not exactly large, the interior of the Corsa isn’t a bad place to be on longer journeys. Seats are simple but not too hard, and legroom is ample.
The updates Vauxhall has made bring it up to the standard expected by today’s supermini drivers. Connectivity, comfort and a ‘big car’ feel are more and more important, as vehicles in the sector take an ever increasing market share. In the total market, Vauxhall has this year registered 50,000 Corsas to date – more than 16,500 of those to fleets – making it the company’s best-selling car. The brand’s battle against Fiesta continues, but the improved quality of the Corsa makes it an easier sales proposition.
