Used Vauxhall Corsa
About used Vauxhall Corsas
Continually one of the best-selling cars in the UK, Vauxhall’s little Corsa is a fantastic vehicle for those looking to get from A to B in both safety and style. It’s popular among the young, old and everyone in between thanks to a combination of good looks, small, economical engines and reliability.
From the early 1990s, the Corsa became one of the best little cars on the market. The original Corsa A never had the reputation the new ones have, but it was cheap and very basic. And that’s why it struck so well with the young and old.
With new models like the super-powerful and agile VXR, a used Corsa continues to please and appeal to the younger generations. 200bhp in a car as small as the Corsa is a recipe that results in a fun and exciting drive.
Get your hands on a used Corsa
Thanks to Vauxhall’s commitment to improve build quality, the latest Corsa is a million miles away from the last Corsa. Even the most basic used Vauxhall Corsa is a great buy. Thanks to its low price, you can pick up a second-hand Corsa for a fairly cheap price, whichever spec you go for.
If you opt for a middle-of-the-range model, you’ll enjoy air con, lots of airbags and some nice touches on the interior. The SRi and VXR models are aimed at the petrolheads of the UK. Both models remain practical while being injected with a hint of sportiness.
The EcoFlex Corsa is the one to go for if you are looking to save some money at the pumps, as they’ve been designed to sip as little as possible. Whichever Corsa you choose, you’ll be assured of a cheap, practical little hatch with everything you’d expect.
How a used Vauxhall Corsa drives
The top-of-the-range VXR Nurburgring edition is fabulous; using race technology to really impress in the bends and in straight lines. It boasts Brembo brakes and a mechanical limited-slip differential, so that would be a top pick for anyone who wants a fantastic, 200bhp hot hatch.
For those who just want a Corsa to get around town, the better choice would be to buy an EcoFlex or a diesel, as these are not only better on fuel, but more fun, too.
There’s a decent amount of space in the rear and the Corsa does come with an airy feel inside. It’s just a great little hatchback for modern Britain, making it one of the most popular used Vauxhalls on the market.
Vauxhall Corsa awards
With its familiar shape and reliability, there’s no wonder a used Vauxhall Corsa is so popular among second-hand car buyers. What’s more, it’s picked up a number awards – highlighting its ability as a hatchback. In 2017, the Vauxhall Corsa was chosen as “Best Supermini” at the 2017 Fleet World Honours.
