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

Vauxhall Corsa


The single thing that’s annoyed me most about the Corsa in the months it’s been in my care is probably quite irrational – it’s the lack of a rotating  volume knob.

There isn’t a visible mute button either, so going from quiet radio to loud (or vice versa) is a bit of a pain.

Other than that, though, the Corsa is proving itself to be a good quality car. Seating remains comfortable on long journeys, and the boot is square and deep.

The number of new shape Corsas on the road seems to be rapidly increasing, and there’s a big variety in trim and colours that are available.

The SRI of our model isn’t lacking in functionality, and I’m even warming to the unusual black alloys.

They haven’t been kerbed, but it would be interesting to see how they cope with kerb damage, and whether blemishes become more noticeable (not that I’m planning on finding out). These would, of course, affect recharges when it’s time to defleet the vehicle.

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.
