Pricewatch: Vauxhall Corsa 1.2i 16v Club 3dr v Ford Fiesta 1.25 Style 3dr

FORD against Vauxhall is a perennial fleet contest and now there’s a fresh battle with an all-new Corsa hitting the road in October to take on the Blue Oval’s Fiesta.

The Corsa is a much larger car than the one it replaces and features bold styling inside and out, while the Fiesta is starting to show its age a little, despite a mild facelift earlier this year.

We’re comparing mid-spec, lower-powered petrol models, so which car will be the safest place for a fleet to put its supermini cash over three years and 60,000 miles?
