This is a review for the corsa SRi 1.7 CDTi but seeing as there is no category for it and i am new to this so dont know how to create one, i thought i would put it here. before Purchasing my Corsa i couyld find no reviews anywhere on the net for the new 1.7 CDTi variant, so hopefully this will help others!!

ok well i took delivery of my corsa about 3 weeks ago and i still think it is superb. Its thebest car ive owned , so far!! I went for the CDTi engine, whcich is uprated from the SXi version to 100bhp, for a couple of reasons, mainly insurance and running costs. The performance of the engine is exellent, especially when the turbo kicks in which makes it great for overtaking. And there is no worrys if u go into a corner too fast the stifened and lowered suspension and fat tyresmeans tehres no problem, and if something jumps out in front of you you can stop almost instantly!! The breaks are exellent and are assisted with EBD and ABS so you wont lose control under breaking.
Being a Diesel i obviously get great economy, about 60 mpg average when im driving normally, which i think is exellent for a car that will reach 60 in about 10s and go all the way to well let just say more thatn the broochure quotes!! but the best performance rating is the 30-50 in 4th, only a fraction slower than the 1.8 so it makes for exellent motorway driving and overtaking!!

ok enough on performance, Lets talk features!! I went for the optional NCDC 2015 whcich features Sat Nav, 4 disc changer and car phone, i also went for the cruise control. All these extra features are exellent , but the NCDC at about £1,400 is a litle expensive, especially as you do not get a colour monitor. but the sat nav works brilliantly and even though it doesnt have the colour monitor it has a nice display that is easy to follow. the phone is exellent too, just put your sim card in the nokia unit in the glove box and all your calls will come through your stereo speakers!!! I would definately recommend the 4 disc changer which is what i use the most out of the optional extras, i think it makes all the difference. and the cruise control is self explanitory!! The car comes with all the other features you expect from a new car, air con etc but u can look at all that stuff up.

Personally i think its a very good looking car, it looks and feels very sprty, mine is the new face lift model (04) and has new bumpers xenon headlamps as well as the usual styling 16" alloys with nice lo pro tyres etc. I am a fan of the interior too, its quite simple but v ery user friendly, with the added sporting touches i.e seats and whit dials etc which does give u that sporty feel inside.

The ride is exeelent inside, it is a very sporty feeling car but not uncomfortable. the sports seat hold u inplace should you want to scare your passangers but i have been on a couple of long journeys allready and it has been exellent. the build quality is superb and everything feels very solid wich reduces noise on motorways!!

All in all i am very please with my car and i would definately recommend it to anyone who is considering a sproty looking and feeling hatch, having looked at the competition i felt this was the best on offer and i still do!! i would also take a look at the corsa if u were loking for someting a bit bigger i.e a golf or focus as it is very roomy inside and i think the styling u get form the harry is much better than what you could expect from a golf or focus, especially the new golf!!

But obviously this is all my opinion so dont listen to me go and see whats out there, u wont know if u like it until ur sat behind the wheel!!!

ps i ahve ha done problem with my car, the alarm button cam off!! but its been fixed with no hassle!!

A decent and fairly informative review although you do tend to give opinions rather than concrete facts. Your spelling is rather loose also, so a run through the spell checker before posting would be advisable.
