Vauxhall has given some attention to its Corsa supermini to make sure it stays relevant to buyers in this crowded market. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.
Vauxhall has given some attention to its fourth-generation Vauxhall Corsa supermini line-up, refining the engine range down to variants of an improved version of its 1.4-litre petrol engine and enhancing the value proposition on offer. If you want a sharp deal on a car in this class, you'll get it on this one, but there are also other reasons why a Corsa might suit.
The Corsa supermini remains Vauxhall's best seller even though the brand has two smaller models - the Viva and the ADAM - in its line-up. This MK4 version has continued that trend, but recently, growing competition in the supermini segment has required a bit of a re-think when it comes to this car. Hence some changes on the engine front, extra equipment across the range and the addition of a new hot hatch flagship model, the GSi. Of course, there are still newer and glitzier small hatches vying for your attention in this class, but we reckon you'll probably end up getting a better deal on this one. Which wouldn't be that relevant if it wasn't a class-competitive product. Is it still ? Let's find out.
The revised Corsa range is built entirely around versions of its improved Euro 6.2-compliant 1.4-litre petrol engine - so no diesels, 1.0, 1.2 or 1.6-litre units any more. There is though, the choice of either 5 or 6-speed manual gearboxes or an automatic. You can have the 1.4-litre powerplant in normally aspirated form with either 75 or 90PS - or with a turbo with either 100PS or (in the top GSi) with 150PS. The Corsa has always been a pretty entertaining steer and it's helped in this regard by a low centre of gravity, a stiff front sub-frame and sharp suspension geometry. This features special front knuckles, plus carefully chosen spring rates and dampers to reduce the pitching movement you'd normally get at the front during sharp braking manoeuvres. Following the current trend, the steering system is electrically-powered and is speed-sensitive with a UK-specific tune to cater for our roads. That's not enough to enable this car to offer the kind of precise feedback you'd get in, say, a Ford Fiesta. But as standard with this set-up, you do get something which most owners will probably find a lot more useful, namely a clever 'City' mode that makes low speed manoeuvring and parking far simpler.
On to design. This fourth generation Corsa was essentially a re-skin of the previous third generation version, but it still looks quite fresh, especially when dressed up in the manner that most variants now tend to be. At the front, 'eagle eye'-shaped headlamps incorporate Vauxhall's signature 'wing'-style LED daytime running lights. Between them is a low, sporty trapezoidal grille with a chrome bar for the Griffin badge that sits above front foglamps embedded in chrome-trimmed air inlets that are intended to make the car look wider, lower and more purposeful. Which is certainly the profile demeanour of the three-door version, always supposed to be the sportier of the two Corsa bodystyles. That's further emphasised by an upper windowline that drops to the rear in an effort to make the car look coupe-like. On the slightly more conservative-looking five-door version, the beltline extends upwards, creating a more dynamic connection with the roof spoiler. Drop inside and you'll find an instrument panel themed around horizontal lines and featuring in most models a 7-inch Intellilink infotainment colour touchscreen that dominates the centre of the dash and is smartly mounted in a high-gloss surround. In the back, this Corsa is much as it always was, remaining one of the more spacious superminis you can buy with plenty of room for two fully-grown adults - or three children - in this five-door model. Inevitably the three door bodyshape is a little more claustrophobic. Out back, there's a 285-litre boot.
Prices start at just over £11,000, but that only gets you the entry-level 'Active' variant which comes only in three-door form and only with the 75PS version of the normally aspirated 1.4-litre petrol engine. Across most of the rest of the line-up, the five-door body style is an option for £600 more. Most buyers will want to start their perusal of the range from at least 'Design' level, which costs from around £13,000 and comes with the same base engine. Stretching up to 'Energy' trim and a £14,500 budget means you get the option of the 1,.4-litre engine in its 90PS guise, in which form you can have an auto gearbox too. The 75 and 90PS units are also the ones on offer at the mid-range 'Sport' level. If you want the turbo version of the 1.4-litre engine, it's available as one of the options on offer to 'SRi Nav' buyers, though you'll need over £17,000 for that engine with this spec. Beyond that, there's a more visually arresting 'SRi VX-Line Nav Black' variant (with only 75 and 90PS power), before the range culminates with the top 1.4i Turbo 150PS GSi warm hatch model. Across the range, standard safety stuff includes twin front, side and curtain airbags plus ESP stability control.
Despite the fact that all the 1.4-litre petrol engines on offer are of the improved Euro 6.2-compliant variety, running costs aren't exemplary by class standards. The base 75 and 90PS normally aspirated units record the same figures - 49.6mpg on the combined cycle and 130g/km of CO2. The 1.4i Turbo 100PS unit actually does a little better - 50.4mpg and 128g/km. The 150Ps version of this unit in the top GSi variant manages 49.6mpg and 139g/km. You'll also need to know that Vauxhall includes a three-year, 60,000 mile warranty as standard, a package that can be extended up to five years and 100,000 miles at extra cost. A year's free breakdown cover is also provided, along with a six-year anti-corrosion guarantee. Service intervals are at 20,000 miles or every 12 months, depending on which comes round sooner and you can opt for a service plan that lets you pay monthly to spread the cost of regular work to your car. As part of this, Vauxhall offers discounts on wear and tear items, such as brake pads and windscreen wipers.
And in summary? Well what we're looking at here is a Corsa that can. It can be fun to drive. It can deliver a big car feel. And it can deliver the kind of trendy media connectivity that younger buyers are looking for. It's a small Vauxhall for which no apologies need to be made. It's not perfect of course. It doesn't lead its class in terms of either space, efficiency or driving dynamics. And more work is still needed under the bonnet to deliver a more cutting edge engine range. The key though, is that this Vauxhall is now there, or thereabouts, in the three key areas just mentioned. Add to that the wide model line-up and the likely deals on offer and you've a supermini that more than ever, needs to remain high on any family's shopping list.
By Jonathan Crouch
The fourth generation version of Vauxhall's Corsa borrowed much from its predecessor but still manages to mark a decent step forward for Vauxhall in the supermini segment. If you prioritise value, it's a decent used buy. Here we look at the 2014-2018-era versions of this MK4 model.
3&5dr Hatch [1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.4 Turbo, 1.6 Turbo petrol / 1.3 CDTi diesel]
By 2014, the Corsa supermini was no longer Vauxhall's smallest model, but it was still the brand's biggest seller. Though this fourth generation Corsa looked much the same as a MK3 model whose history went back to 2006, it was - as advertised - fundamentally different, changed in all the areas that really mattered, with the underpinnings, the engine and the technology all new. There was a much smarter cabin too and buyers were promised a far better driving experience than any small Vauxhall had previously offered. An all-new three cylinder turbocharged 1.0-litre ECOTEC petrol powerplant was the headline engine, but there were also 1.2 and 1.4-litre units, plus a 1.3-litre diesel. In 2015, a 1.6-litre turbo petrol VXR hot hatch model was added to the range. In the early Summer of 2018, the line-up was slimmed down to the 1.4-litre petrol engine and the VXR was deleted in favour of a less manic 1.4 150PS GSI variant. It's the earlier, wider 2014-2017-era range we look at here though.
This MK4 Corsa's design is a mix of old and new. The 'old' is easily appreciated, for you'll immediately recognise this as a Corsa, given that the windows and the A, B and C pillars that surround them on this fourth generation model are pretty much identical to those of the old third generation version. There's much that was 'new' for this 2014-era design though. Every body panel is different from the previous MK3 car, most of the underpinnings were changed and there was a re-designed crash structure at the front. At the wheel, everything's of better quality than before, with soft-touch materials dominating the dash and decor elements dressed in rich satin chrome. Many of the major functions are grouped onto the 7-inch Intellilink infotainment colour touchscreen that dominates the centre of the dash and is smartly mounted in a high-gloss surround. In the back, this Corsa is much as it always was, remaining one of the more spacious superminis you can buy with plenty of room for two fully-grown adults - or three children - in the five-door model. Inevitably the three door body shape is a little more claustrophobic. Either way though, there's significantly more head and legroom than you'd get in a comparable Ford Fiesta.
You won't pay that much for this Vauxhall. The figures we're going to quote are for 3-door models. Add on around £250 for the 5-door body style. Prices for this MK4 Corsa start at about £5,000 for an early '14-era 1.2-litre petrol model with 'Life' trim, rising to about £6,200 for a '16-era version. We'd try and find £300-400 more for a better-equipped 'Sting' or 'Design'-spec car. The higher-tech 3 cylinder 1.0-litre ECOTEC petrol model's worth looking out for, given that it'll be quicker and more economical. Prices vary in the £6,000 to £8,000 bracket for '14 and '15-era cars with either 90 or 115PS outputs; you should have quite a choice. As for the 1.3 CDTi diesels, well prices start at around £6,200 for a '14-era 75PS 'Design'-spec model, with values rising to around £10,100 for a later '18-era car. The 95PS version of this engine won't cost you a lot more. If you're interested in the 1.6-litre petrol turbocharged VXR hot hatch, values start at around £9,300, rising to around £14,400 for one of the last of the '18-era models.
We found plenty of satisfied MK4 Corsa customers, but inevitably, there were some who had issues. One owner had to have a new seat frame because the original one wouldn't go back to its original position. And his 1.0-litre engine needed new timing chain and sprockets and a tensioner at just 12,000 miles, then had to replace them all again at 26,000 miles. He then found the horn had failed and that the windows kept operating on their own.. In another case, a 1.2-litre Corsa needed its brake shoes replacing after just three months and developed a major water leak. This is apparently a known fault and it's worth checking under the carpet on the driver's side where the VIN number is to make sure the area is dry. Otherwise, it's the usual things; insist on a fully stamped-up service history. Check the alloys carefully for parking scrapes. And examine the interior plastics for signs of general child abuse.
(approx based on a 2015 Corsa 1.4 75bhp - Ex Vat) An air filter costs around £9-£10. Front brake discs cost in the £30 to £90 bracket. Rear brake discs cost in the £40 to £72 bracket. Front brake pads sit in the £25 to £60 bracket for a set. A set of rear pads is around £60. Wiper blades can cost as little as £10. A radiator can be had for around £100. An oil filter costs in the £5 to £6 bracket.
There used to be quite a significant gap between a Vauxhall Corsa and its arch-rival Ford's Fiesta in terms of driving dynamics. There isn't with this MK4 model. Yes, this Corsa still can't surpass a Fiesta from this era for ultimate handling response but it can run the Ford close thanks to a whole series of development changes made to this design, not least a stiffer redesigned chassis and much greater torsional rigidity. Other reasons behind this improvement lie with a completely revised suspension set-up. There's also much better body control - and a significant improvement in ride quality. At launch in 2014, the only completely fresh powerplant this car could offer was the one on which the majority of the launch budget was spent, the three cylinder 1.0-litre turbocharged ECOTEC petrol unit. It comes in either 90 or 115PS guises. From launch, you could have a 1.2i petrol powerplant too, but this was later replaced by a normally aspirated 1.4-litre unit, available in 75 or 90PS outputs. Vauxhall also offered this 1.4 in turbo form, developing either 100 or 150PS. Between 2014 and early 2018, there was a 1.3-litre CDTi diesel with either 75 or 95PS outputs. And between 2015 and 2017, the brand offered a VXR hot hatch model with a 1.6-litre petrol turbo 200PS unit.
Ultimately, what we're looking at here is a Corsa that can. It can be fun to drive. It can deliver a big car feel. And it can stack up well on the balance sheet. It's a small Vauxhall for which no apologies need to be made. It's not perfect of course. It doesn't lead its supermini class in the 2014-2018 era in terms of either space, efficiency or driving dynamics. And other rivals offer more efficient engines. The key though, is that this Vauxhall is there, or thereabouts, in the key areas that will interest potential buyers. Add to that the wide model line-up and the likely deals on offer and you've a supermini that more than ever, needs to remain high on any family's used supermini shopping list.
Vauxhall's Corsa hasn't lost that streetwise edge. June Neary gets behind the wheel.
Out on the road, you can't help but notice the little Corsa. In the throngs of city traffic, there is very little else that can cut its way as deftly through the queues, and still leave you unruffled at the other end. The first time I met the Corsa, it seemed to beg me to drive it and I did, with great enjoyment. This latest version promised to be something special from my first glimpse of it in the car park. The current model has a front end featuring a deep Vauxhall V-grille with aggressive air intakes under the bumper and a pair of headlamps that smear back along the wings. The result, in three-door form particularly, is a car that now has one of the more appealing shapes in the supermini sector.
I felt at home straight away. The model I was driving was beautifully upholstered, and the interior was light and airy. The driving position was very comfortable, and the controls clear and easy to read. A centre console housed a logical nest of controls for the heater and stereo, all easy to use. In the three-door model I borrowed, there was just about room for two adults in the back but I struggled to fit two child seats in, plus a booster in the middle. Legroom was good but the payback for this was the smallish boot space. Still, take out the parcel shelf and you could still fit in a decent amount of luggage if you needed to. Climb inside and, if you're used to the Astra, you'll feel immediately at home here. The quality of materials used is leagues ahead of previous generation Corsa models and like the Astra, there's the bulletproof feeling of build quality that's as good as anything in the sector. This MK4 Corsa features translucent ambient lighting on the centre console switchgear, one of those 'surprise and delight' features that adds the all-important showroom wow-factor. The round air vents and big Intellilink infotainment screen give the Corsa's dash a modern, integrated look too. In my test car, it was linked to Vauxhall's excellent 'OnStar' concierge system, which gives you Wi-Fi and access to an operator at the press of a button. . Around town, the Corsa is easy to drive but it also feels settled on longer trips. The suspension is well balanced between sporty handling and comfort, giving a smooth, quiet ride even on the most potholed of country lanes. I also continue to admire the Corsa's image. It manages to avoid looking like a cartoon and, at the same time, it's smart enough for business use. What's more, for short journeys, this little Vauxhall is very suitable as a family run-around. Safety is a big consideration for me - and this little car certainly delivers the basics. Double side-impact protection beams are installed in the doors; and the anti-submarine ramps installed into the seats stop you sliding under your seatbelt under heavy braking. Add to this reinforced rear seats (to give protection to occupants from any luggage in the boot) and full seat-belt pre-tensioners and the Corsa looks like a package that I would be happy to transport my whole family around in.
I really liked the power steering as it made running around town easy - it is only three turns from one lock to the other. Where it really came into its own was in my office car park however - the spaces are a little on the narrow side, but the compact Corsa slid in and out without any problems. The accelerator was just about right - enough zip to get me away from the lights but not so much that the front wheels spun on quick getaways. When the car was loaded, the added weight didn't seem to make that much difference, either.
Prices start at around £11,000 and you can have this car's 1.4-litre petrol powerplant in normally aspirated form with either 75 or 90PS - or with a turbo with either 100PS or (in the top GSi) with 150PS. Despite the fact that all the 1.4-litre petrol engines on offer are of the improved Euro 6.2-compliant variety, running costs aren't exemplary by class standards. The base 75 and 90PS normally aspirated units record the same figures - 49.6mpg on the combined cycle and 130g/km of CO2. The 1.4i Turbo 100PS unit actually does a little better - 50.4mpg and 128g/km. The 150Ps version of this unit in the top GSi variant manages 49.6mpg and 139g/km.
For day-to-day driving, the Corsa was brilliant, but I would recommend the 5-door version if you're carrying passengers, especially children, as loading is much easier. For something fun, frugal and cheap to run, I can think of few better small cars.
