Why Lease A Vauxhall Corsa?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Corsa feels very roomy from the front, with plenty of headroom and a decent driving position. Further back, adults will find the space comfortable enough without being exemplary. Children, however, will have plenty of room to stretch out, so carrying a family of 4 will be easy enough.
Boot space is dependent on which version of the Corsa you choose. Petrol- and diesel-powered versions get a handy 309-litre boot, that grows to 1118 litres when you fold the rear seats. That’s more than you get in a Toyota Yaris or a Ford Fiesta, but a Honda Jazz or Volkswagen Polo will be more spacious. The electric Corsa-E cuts that space to 267 litres with the rear seats upright and that’s barely more than you get in a Volkswagen Up city car.
With plenty of engines to choose from, you’ll always be able to lease a Corsa that suits your needs. The petrol engines are all 1.2-litre units offering a choice of 75-, 100- or 130hp. There’s also a 102hp 1.5-litre diesel that represents the economical choice. Officially speaking, it will return between 62.8- and 70.6mpg. But no version of the Corsa is thirsty and every model does at least 45mpg on the official economy test.
The electric Corsa-E is the car for the eco- and cost-conscious driver. With a 134hp motor, it’s the fastest Corsa you can lease and also the cheapest to run. It’ll do 209 miles on a full charge, and because it has no tailpipe emissions it’s cheap to tax. Company car drivers will pay just 1% in Benefit-in-Kind tax during the 2021/22 financial year.
Corsa HatchbackThe Corsa is only available as a 5-door hatchback.
The Vauxhall Corsa Vs Competitors
Vauxhall’s reputation for reliability isn’t great and the Corsa hasn’t performed well in surveys over the past few years. But the new model should be much better, with more modern equipment and components shared with Peugeot and Citroen. For peace of mind, there’s a standard 3-year warranty so you’re protected should you have a problem.
The Corsa’s boot measures 309 litres with the rear seats upright. That’s slightly more than you get in a Ford Fiesta or a Toyota Yaris, but less than you’ll get from a Honda Jazz or a Volkswagen Polo. Fold the rear-seat backrests down and the space grows to 1118 litres. Electric versions have slightly less space, with a 267-litre boot that grows to 1081 litres when you fold the rear seats.
When you lease a Corsa, you get a choice of 8 different trim levels, but 3 are exclusive to the electric Corsa-E. SE is the entry-level option, while the Corsa-E range starts with the SE Nav Premium. Then you move up to the value-orientated Griffin Edition and the sporty SRi models. The Elite and Ultimate versions offer more luxury.
Rear parking sensors are included as standard on all but the entry-level SE versions of the Corsa. SRi versions make do with rear sensors alone, while the Griffin Edition, Elite and Ultimate models get a rear-view camera thrown in as well.
The Corsa is a fairly practical small hatchback. The boot is bigger than that of a Ford Fiesta, but it’s smaller than you’ll find in a Volkswagen Polo or SEAT Ibiza. In the cabin, front space is exemplary, while rear space is good without being class-leading. You can seat 4 adults without making anyone feel too cramped.
The Corsa is one of the most popular cars in the UK, going toe-to-toe with the Ford Fiesta for overall bragging rights. That’s partly down to its fresh, modern styling and the vastly improved driving dynamics. Value is also a key factor, with the Griffin Edition giving leasers a huge amount of kit without breaking the bank.
