Vauxhall Corsa Limited Edition

“Despite its name, the Vauxhall Corsa Limited Edition is a permanent fixture in the model's range. It comes with some unique touches, but has the same low running costs of the more basic models.”

The Vauxhall Corsa Limited Edition is supposed to appeal to people who want the sporty looks of the Vauxhall Corsa VXR, but without its expensive running costs. To this end, it gets unique 17-inch alloy wheels, a sporty bodykit, front foglights, dark-tinted rear lights and tinted windows. Plus, it's available as a sporty three or practical five-door model.

The Corsa Limited Edition also has a well specced cabin, with body-hugging seats, sports suspension and Vauxhall's IntelliLink infortainment system.

Standard equipment includes things like air-conditioning, cruise control and a trip computer. The Limited Edition is availavle with a 1.0-litre, 1.2-litre or one of two 1.4-litre petrol engines. They all promise more than 50mpg, although all but the excellent 1.0-litre engine are quite expensive to tax.

Good points

The Vauxhall Corsa is one of the most spacious superminis on the market, with storage spaces dotted around the cabin and a decent-sized boot.Despite the sports suspension, the Corsa Limited Edition is also a comfortable place to sit, although buyers should test drive the Limited Edition model alongside lesser models in the range – that suspension won't be suited to all tastes.

Bad points

While the Vauxhall Corsa Limited Edition offers decent value in the showroom, come resale time it's likely to shed its value badly.Buyers wanting a super-efficient model will have to look elsewhere in the Corsa range, as no diesel engines are available here.

Our choice

The stand-out engine in the Corsa range is the 1.0-litre petrol. Despite being the smallest, it's the most powerful as well as the cheapest to run. It's surprisingly capable on the motorway, too.
