Our fleet: Vauxhall Corsa 1.0t SRi 90 5dr car review - August 2015

Vauxhall Corsa


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.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.

Vauxhall Corsa first drive | best-seller is now even better

Based on the same platform as the new Peugeot 208, the Corsa is about as far from its predecessor as it could get.

Honda Jazz first drive | lower running costs thanks to hybrid technology

The Jazz is available exclusively with a clever hybrid system that uses battery power in town, a conventional engine on faster roads and a mix of the two elsewhere.
