Vauxhall Corsa GLS
One of the lower end models of this likeable little hatchback from a few years ago, the Vauxhall Corsa GLS is a great option to consider because it’s absolute value for money. What you get is something perky and lively that looks great and drives well, and doesn’t cost a fortune either. Decently equipped, it’s safe and reliable, and just a good all rounder that appeals to people who want something positive but affordable. There really is a lot to like about this car, and it seems to do everything right, with engines including 1.2 litre petrols.
A good looking car in its own right, the Vauxhall Corsa GLS might be a few years old, but has some definite charm about it, with a friendly character. It’s well put together inside, and there’s a good amount of room for kids in the back, in addition to a generous 285 litres of boot space that keeps everyday tasks very straightforward. In terms of equipment, expect to find body coloured bumbers, steel wheels, cloth seats, airbags, remote locking and more. A nice car to drive, it behaves on all types of roads and loves to cruise around town in particular. You’ll pay £1,000 used.
