The New Vauxhall Corsa vs. Ford Fiesta, VW Polo6
Considering the relative importance of the Vauxhall Corsa to UK sales, it’s important that the marque has gotten the new-for-2015, fourth-generation car just right.
And so, the UK’s Autocar took the new Corsa out – along with a Ford Fiesta and a Volkswagen Polo – to see if and how the Vauxhall “supermini” has surpassed the competition.
It’s an interesting three-car shootout, because the Ford Fiesta (according to Autocar’s Matt Prior) is the agile, rewarding-to-drive car out of the three. Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Polo is the benchmark for build quality and refinement. Thus, the little Corsa has two meters – two distinct paths – by which it could surpass the competition.
So how does this new Vauxhall Corsa fare? Meh. The car takes third in the comparison, Mr. Prior conceding that while its interior took a few steps forward in terms of layout and materials, the Polo still has the most refined, solidly-constructed interior of the three, hands-down. The Corsa has also come along in terms of driving dynamics, according to the reviewer, but not quite enough to match the unanimous leader in that rubric: the Ford Fiesta.
So then, the Vauxhall Corsa still falls short of these other two superminis, with the Fiesta being the clear option for those seeking engaging dynamics, and the Polo the only choice for budget refinement. Though, this is not to say that this new Corsa hasn’t improved upon the standard established by previous iterations, and chances are that the small, cheap car that makes up a whopping one-third of Vauxhall’s sales in the UK will still be quite safe and sound in the European marketplace.

There will be many more comparisons. All three are solid offerings.
I wish that GM would Federalize Corsa to either replace or compliment Spark as has occurred in China via Sail. While Spark is a great little car, it is a budget offering that isn’t on par with Fiesta.
An Opel sub brand/family (Adam+Corsa+Astra hot hatch) simply sold as Chevrolet Opel (Corsa) (S) (Rocks) would be great.
the corsa which is the climate in this test panel is just very ugly and bad. this was the very first panel on climate opel corsa.
Corsa is a very important equipment, and how the machine is completed. corsa can be very cheap and very ugly. corsa can also be quite expensive and nice and tidy.
ford fiesta is the only one of the three that has any level of supply me pleasure. fieasta is also completely new. Fiesta lounge is also not my favorite in such a horrible nag solution to climate corsa uselles test panel is not. vw polo lounge is like a very decent golf class. while this test is also different varsutustasemed and polol vw shop for the cheapest seats. However, even the cheapest vw polo dashboard is really nice.
CORSA can play and have the cheapest prices and the best equipment, but with less air-dash panel is just scary bad and the ugly. One thing this affects a lot of opinion. This solution is really a very old and ugly as this test is opel corsa.
In terms of price, of course, the good and the corsa corsa The test is generally pretty decent and pretty even.
The only thing that drives me mad is that it is offered to the climate panel is so ugly and old and not good quality at all.
But in general, people have their own favorites, and different opinions, and also such comparisons and tests are different. Similar machines are hard to find all kinds of things affect comparisons, however, views and results.
the three-door Fiesta would still find
corsa e facelift comes 2018 and totaly new corsa comes 2020? ahhaaaa
and it also does not like to be called entirely new. GM sells a lot and hopefully corsa strategy works. it is a big risk that the strategy will work or not work. There are only two options.
Things gm parts of me do not like it, and I believe that it is wrong. parts of cars stretched and wants to create excitement and generate interest in people.
It is now the corsa e stick to the current VW Polo VW Polo but you can already now be a new update or a completely new model. e corsa opc should already be well out of lastama and millks stretch here for months. Adam Opel’s long overdue and should be available for sale. New Ford Mondeo and Passat are now on sale for the 2017 Insignia Insignia as the 2017 year insignia lsiis be much larger than the plunge today, Passat and Mondeo came. or whether the Insignia will be launched in 2017 and konkureeridbi the current Passat and Mondeo. 2017 will be the year for Mondeo and Passat facelift.
I really hope that GM strategy works and wins. and when they finish their rHA tagajamise or liquidation of the loss can be right for the game to go ahead.
is still very high on adrenaline right now, that’s how things go forward.
I believe that if Opel will then begin work helping to build off the loss of things to do. coming, omega, senator, Calibra, Monza, Manta, and all the others in its various versions.
currently it is interesting to watch how things are done cleverly, and new strategies.
possible that I have too much imagination, but all of this can be seen not only as the Opel Opel is the most noticeable. Opel itself, and also highlights the fact that when the losses from open and applies only to the yacht. because I understand and I also do not like the new stuff that andkes and hope to come back to the good times, and GM will make your work with all the entities as one of the company must be a GM and your car can be a very high level.
so far I’m really honored VAG group are work and policies that have led to great success, and have also seen with my own eyes how the calls in the products are developed and how the company works. GM has the opportunity to become better than the VAG.
I dare to believe that GM has been better than the VAG and 90s
O and if you want both?
If you want one that is better built and executed than the idiotic and stupid Fiesta with its useless interior and is better to drive than the ugly and boring Polo?
What have we then to choose?
The intelligent choice.
Why choose one or the other when you can have both?
