Which Vauxhall Corsa is For You?

Corsa VXR

Corsa VXRThe Vauxhall Corsa is one of the British car manufacturer’s most popular models, albeit with a slightly confusing history.

German manufacturer Opel launched the Corsa back in 1982 with the Vauxhall Nova arriving a year later as a rebranded version on UK shores. It wasn’t until 1993 that the Vauxhall Corsa itself arrived as a replacement for the Nova.
Today the latest range of Corsas prove popular with all kinds of drivers due to refinements that have been made over the last couple of decades. Many factors have led to the Vauxhall Corsa’s continued success and its broad appeal is just one of them. But which one is best for you?

Family Driver
A brand new, five-door Vauxhall Corsa from the latest range is the best option for anyone looking for a ride that will accompany two or three kids along with all the clobber that comes with them. A standard 1.4 engine is great for city driving but also making trips around the country visiting family or going on holiday.

There’s ample room in the boot and back seats with a sleek interior design giving it a professional appearance too. The 1.3 CDTI model maximises economy for those with green ambitions and each one drives smoothly for an enjoyable ride.

Boy Racer
The Vauxhall Corsa Sting is ideal for those who desire a sporty looking vehicle that delivers the performance to match. Coming in black it features twin white stripes running across the body of the car, 16-inch alloy wheels and white wing mirrors to match.

Those with a bit more cash should go for the Sting R which comes in opposite colours and includes sports suspension, pedals and a black front grille bar. This creates a comfortable drive whether you’re zipping through city streets to work or coasting around in the countryside at the weekend.

Classic Car Fanatic
You can find many original Vauxhall Novas for sale online that just need a lick of paint and some fine tuning to get them up and running. An earlier incarnation of the Vauxhall Corsa, a 1.6 GTE Vauxhall Nova hatchback offers a great option for the retro car lover.

With its box shape and small stature it is popular in many vintage car races. It’s possible to find some in good condition but otherwise adding additional front lights, re-painting and adding a stripe or two can soon get it looking and driving as good as new.
