Vauxhall Corsa (2014 – 2019)

Not a current model

The Vauxhall Corsa is a small supermini-class hatchback available in three- and five-door body styles. This model was launched in 2014 and was replaced in early 2020 by an all-new model.

There is a higher-performance model called the Corsa GSi, which replaced an ever higher-performance model called the VXR. The reviews for the GSi have not been as positive as the regular range, which has dragged the overall score down by a couple of percentage points.

The Vauxhall Corsa received average reviews from most UK media sources, particularly in later years as newer rivals have arrived in the market. The Corsa remained one of the biggest-selling cars in the UK right up until the end of its production life, and remains a very popular first-car choice for young drivers.
