Vauxhall Corsa generations

The Vauxhall Corsa was originally known as the Nova in the early 1980s, but changed names in 1993. In total, the model has been through six generations, with each offering a more modern style and upgraded features. Vauxhall has supplied many powertrains during this time, though most of them have been equipped with a manual transmission.

Sixth Generation (2019 to Present)

The five-door hatchback shares the same underpinnings as the Citroen C3 and Peugeot 208, with a lighter weight than previous variants. Not only does the lower weight help improve efficiency, but it also reduces emissions. There's even an all-electric model with no tailpipe emissions.

The interior is modern, but minimalistic by nature. Because of the small size, the Corsa is fun to drive and easy to manoeuvre around town.

Fifth Generation (2014 to 2019)

Available as a three- or five-door hatchback, the Corsa wasn't much different from previous versions. In 2018, the VXR hot hatch was discontinued, despite having a popular fan base. It was replaced by the GSi, which, while showcasing an aggressive design, had less power.

The Corsa remained a top choice for any driver who wanted to stick to a budget but desired something stylish and well-equipped to drive around town. With so many sold, it's easy to find this generation in the used car market.

The three- and five-door hatchback share underpinnings with the Fiat Punto. Some styling upgrades included new headlamps and an updated front end. A minor facelift in 2010 added a new touchscreen infotainment system and some stylistic modifications.

In 2007, a performance-focused VXR model was released. It included a 189-horsepower 1.6-litre turbocharged engine that took the small car to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds.

Used Vauxhall Corsa FAQ's

Is the Vauxhall Corsa a good car?

The Vauxhall Corsa continues to be a best-seller, mainly because of its affordable cost to buy and run. Additionally, it's both stylish and fun to drive, and interior space is decent enough for a young family.

Why are Vauxhall Corsas so popular?

The main draw of the Corsa is its affordability and value for money. The Corsa can be a lot of fun to drive, especially in the city, but it doesn't always have the best technology and equipment, unless you are looking at a higher trim level.

What is a Vauxhall Corsa Griffin?

The Griffin is a special edition Corsa, and was originally introduced near the end of its production run. It came fitted with a black styling pack that included a black roof and wing mirrors, plus standard kit such as air conditioning, sports-style heated front seats and a heated steering. The newer Griffin models also feature enhanced specification for only a small extra outlay.

Which is the top spec Corsa?

If you're looking for the most luxurious Corsa with the most features, you should seek out the 'Ultimate' versions. These are equipped with front and rear parking sensors, rear parking camera, satellite navigation, heated steering wheel and even heated massage seats. On the outside, you'll find upgraded alloy wheels.

Are there still manual and automatic Corsas?

Yes, you can still find plenty of both manual and automatic Corsas on the used car market. Most petrol models are manual, although there are plenty of automatic versions too, equipped with an 8-speed auto gearbox. All electric versions, known as the Corsa-e, are fully automatic, too.
