Super

Looks, handling, low insurance, reliability

Does not suit larger families

Fun, cute, pretty, curvy and nippy - a Corsa sport summed-up in six words! Several more words are required however, if I am to do this lovely little car justice... INTRODUCTION I own a 'Sport' - it was purchased new in '97. Almost six years later, I am happy to say that the car is still going...

“Corsa SRiiiiiiiiii”

Great looking little Car and quite cheap to run

I got my Corsa Sri in August 2001 from Reg Vardy in Leeds. I had a Ford Escort before that, an 1.4lx. It caught my eye on the Fore Court, and I went to have a look. I wanted a Corsa Sport 1.6 and didnt want a white car. Anyway this car was white and it really did look stunning, so I asked the...

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...

Looks good, drives good

Expensive 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...

Good

Value for money, low insurance

Cramped 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...

“Fast & Fun”

published 14/09/2000

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...

Very small and nippy car

Can 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...

“Excellent runaround”

published 23/08/2000

good value, size and engine for it's class

poor 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...

“Corsa SRI”

published 24/10/2005

Quite Engine, Smooth Ride

Not 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...

not much room in the back with 3people

I love my corsa! Apart from looking amazing she drives like a little beauty too! my parents own a honda civic & a range rover sport - they love driving my corsa as well so with about 10x my car value to the RRS you cant really complain. My car is a 53 plate and has just got over 22000 miles i...

“Super Car An i Like It :)”

Low cost to run, Reliable

brake pads are not very good

For a small car I found it to be pretty comfortable. It performs well with the 1.6 16v engine being quite revvy and once its wound up is quite an impressive wee car to drive Standard brakes are absolute pants - fit 1.8 16v vectra discs and calipers, they go straight on and make no end of...

published 01/12/2000

practical and nippy

dated styling

Small cars seem to have matured so much in recent years and the Corsa's looks may have remained pretty much untouched but the driving experience has been enhanced - and the Sport Corsa is a good example of this. The smart alloys and sports seats provide a feeling of fun and the cars performance...
