Sporty spicey cute curvy The Corsa Sport

AdvantagesLooks, handling, low insurance, reliability

DisadvantagesDoes not suit larger families

"...was done free by a Vauxhall dealer and has a sticker confirming this attached to the chassis). Door panels and interior sides have a cloth finish matching the seats. The facia and dash is of grey plastic. No air-conditioning in a ‘Sport’ of this age (it was an optional extra) but there is a manual sliding/tilting tinted glass sun roof – in my opinion far nicer than air conditioning anyway – with windows fully down and sun roof ..."

My Corsa

AdvantagesThere are lots of standard items, Sporty look, Quite powerful for a small car

Disadvantagesnone

"I am on my 3rd Corsa in 4 years. I wanted one newer and more powerful. The one i have got now is a Sport 1.4L 16V. I got it in September 2000 (brand new) and it cost me £12,000 with 2 years free insurance. This model is no longer made, the equivalent is the Corsa SRi. All the items i list come as standard on this model. It's got sports seats, which i find very comfy, a rear spoiler and sports exhaust. 3-spoke alloy wheels which have locking nuts ..." Read review

Fast and furious...

AdvantagesLooks good, drives good

DisadvantagesExpensive to maintain

"Although the corsa is only a 1.4, it is quite a nippy car! With the lowered suspension and fat alloys my little beast looks fab, and drives just as well! Which is why I bought it. I can cruise down the motorways at 110mph and it handles corners so easiliy... With the bucket seats it not only looks good, but is comfy too. Sub-woofers in the side pannels and 6x9s in the parcel shelf and the stainless steel exhaust, you can hear me coming....! Although ..." Read review

Excellent runaround

Advantagesgood value, size and engine for it's class

Disadvantagespoor demisting

"We bought this 4 door model with power steering and the 1.4l engine because we had previously had a two door, 1.2l with no power steering. The difference was fantastic and really makes this a good littel family runaround (for a family of four). It's not so good on a long journey (unless you're in the car on your own) or if you have five people. I'ts also got a good boot space and especially with the back seats folded down. The only major drawback ..." Read review

Good looker and practical

Advantagespractical and nippy

Disadvantagesdated styling

"...from the motorway experience. The efforts Vauxhall have made to keep the Corsa's looks fresh have worked in the main though fussy detailing around the wheel arches dates the profile somewhat. Overall the Corsa makes a practical package and the sport pack adds to the fun, recent changes to the range make this model a good value proposition. ..." Read review

What are they like second-hand

AdvantagesValue for money, low insurance

DisadvantagesCramped in the back

"Every car looks shiney and new when it's sat in the the showroom, but how well is your Corsa going to last. I recently bought a 1996 Corsa 1.4 sport second-hand so I thought I'd share my experience of what's gone looking worn. First a little bit of history, my Corsa was first registered in Belfast, Northern Ireland and had one previous female owner. In gereral, the car is in pretty good condition (which is why I bought it.) So far I've had to replace ..." Read review

Fast & Fun

Advantages

Disadvantages

"Having previously driven a Peuguot 106 1.5D I was looking for a car with a bit more speed and something that looked good to drive around it that was not too expensive. I found it in the Corsa Sport 16v 1.4. The car came from it's previous owner with all the bodykit added but even without, this car is good to look at inside and out. Although it doesn't look like it, this car is very nippy and has no problems in going to speeds of 115mph and seems ..." Read review

vauxhall corsa 1.4 design petrol 3dr auto

Advantagesfun, good looking, nifty, reliable

Disadvantagesnot much room in the back with 3people

"...i bought it from a vauxhall dealer as a former courtasy car i would recommend this as you get a fantastic deal on a car in excellent condition. Mine is the 1.4 3dr auto version and is very very fast especially with use of the sports mode button - it really does put the fun back into drivin. The handling is excellent and i am totally satisfied with my car. Im currently 19, being driving 2years and my insurance is under £1000 fully comp i think corsas ..." Read review

Fancy an SRi? i did!

AdvantagesVery small and nippy car

DisadvantagesCan seem cramped from inside

"I came across my vauxhall corsa sri in a local news advertised somerclose, I decided to go and look at the the car that same day. As soon as i saw the car sitting on their drive i knew it was the car for me and after looking round it i took it for a test drive. This was my very first car and it was quite exciting after jst passing my test, I knew insurance for it would be alot but i didnt mind because i would have an SRi. The test drive was perfect ..."

Corsa SRI

AdvantagesQuite Engine, Smooth Ride

DisadvantagesNot fast off the mark

"I bought this car pre-registered, one of the last made before they bought out the lower spec'd sxi+ replacement. The amount of kit you get is unbelievable for the price. The price was 9050 pre-reg factory ordered. This included metallic paint in ultra blue, sports pack 2 (17" alloys and tinted windows), climate pack (climate control, auto-dimming rear view mirror, auto window wipers, solar reflect winowscreen. When the cost is split down the option ..." Read review

Super Car An i Like It :)

AdvantagesLow cost to run, Reliable

Disadvantagesbrake pads are not very good

"...bit of oil. Having owned the Vauxhall Corsa Sport for 2 years now i'd have to say it is a very reliable car, never needing anything apart from the usual (tyres, brake pads, etc). It is comfy for its size and the overall quality of build is very good. Small things like the standard suspension niggle at you a bit, but if you were happy to spend a few quid sorting this out I reckon it'd be well worth it. Plenty of performace parts available out ..."

Opel Fruit

AdvantagesLooks Sporty, Powerful for a small car, Easily modified.

DisadvantagesInterior, Fuel Consumption

"...think this is just a vauxhall thing as ive seen it in the 3door astra sxi's) Other than that the glove box is very limited in space and it all seems to render as a kind of boy racer interior built for speed not space or comfort however the seats do seem to work well when driving on long journeys. My car only came with a standard cassette player but ive bought my own CD player for in-car entertainment the standard speakers are of good quality and as ..." Read review
