About Vauxhall Corsa
Vauxhall has scored a hit with the latest models of their popular Corsa model line. The three-door and five-door hatchbacks are fun, sporty, and attractive cars that appeal to a broad range of buyers. With ride characteristics of a much bigger vehicle, the Corsa has a stable, comfortable feel on the road, and the steering is described as sharp and very responsive. The superb handling matched with one of the larger engine packages available gives the Corsa its sporty racecar feel through the twists and turns of country driving. The interior appointments of the Corsa give the moderately price car a very refined look and is a highlight of the entire appearance package. Available options allow buyers to outfit the Corsa to their desired standards. The interior is roomy, and divided rear folding seats allow for additional storage space when needed. Buyers can choose to sacrifice some of the available performance for the improved economy of the smaller 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre engines. These petrol-burning engines combined with a 5-speed manual transmission are reported to exceed 50 mpg (5.5 litres/100km) during motorway driving. A number of diesel engine options are available with the 1.7 litre diesel engine providing optimum performance and engine torque. The Vauxhall Corsa may be termed a supermini, but it outperforms many of its bigger cousins in comfort, handling, quality refinements, and driving costs. When you slip behind the wheel and take the Corsa for an aggressive test drive, it is easy to forget you are sitting in a fairly economical mini. Experts contribute the weight of the vehicle as the reason for the ride and handling characteristics the car possess, but the extra weight does not diminish from the fact that the Corsa is easy on the petrol.
