Vauxhall Corsa Overview

The Vauxhall Corsa is in the supermini class and is the UK name for the European Opel Corsa. Vauxhall is the UK department of the German car manufacturer Opel. In the UK this car has been a very popular seller and is known for its reliability and low cost to run and maintain. It is seen as a fun car to drive which is also comfortable and has a lot of room in the interior. Some of the smaller engines are not the best on the motorway but are good for driving around town.

Vauxhall Corsa History

The Corsa has been around in Europe since 1982 but was not named the Corsa in the UK until 1993 where it had been previously known as the Vauxhall Nova. This name was dropped and the name Corsa adopted in 1993. It was the Corsa B design that was available in this period. This car was available in small engine sizes ranging from 1.0 -1.6 and was one of the most popular selling supermini cars in the UK. The next generation Corsa C (2000-06) was introduced and was very successful in the UK. It was the most popular supermini car for three years in a row. The Corsa D (2006) is the current version on the market. This version was designed in conjunction with Fiat and based on a whole new platform, the SCCS platform. A lot of the engines were also upgraded making some versions more economical and cheaper to tax on the road. It had a makeover in 2010, bringing in new engines and improvements to the steering and handling.
