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.
