    Looks like its driven through a branch of Halfords! Vauxhall have got a weird view on things here, its aimed at youngsters who are the primarily the sort of people who'd liek & want to but this sort of kitted car, but then its a VXR model underneath it all so an 18yr old would get laughed at by most insurance companies! They'd sell more if it had their 1.0 or 1.2 engine under the hood in my opinion!

    Don't like it at all. Looks wise it's acceptable but using the new Corsa at work the ride is unacceptably harsh with no benefits from it being so harsh and the C pillar is such an odd shape you can't actually see your blind spot.

    It's aimed at exactly the people who won't actually be able to afford to buy it or insure it. The people that can afford it wouldn't spend the hard earned on a Corsa in a dress

    The larger cars can just get away with it but the Corsa just looks modified...badly.

    Not that fast for the power either. Must be heavy.

    slow when you compare an old civic vti that is 14-16 yr old has 160bhp from a 1.6 NA and 0-60 of 7.3. To think this is a new car and only a teenie bit quicker.

    Parkers reckon a normal Corsa VXR tips the scales at 1,223kg!! Thats only 200 or so kg lighter than a standard B6 A4 1.8T Sport!!! **** me thats heavy, settles the arguement regarding handling, it'll be a dog basically!

    I like it, although I think the body additions on the Corsa VXR are a touch heavy-handed, like it's been overdesigned.

    Hardly - I'm saying the car as a package is very good; 192bhp turbocharged 1.6, usual hot-hatch suspension and steering. I just think the looks are a bit OTT with the bodykit, like the designers just kept adding more and more to their CAD drawings.

    My old dear (52) has one, its quite a tidy little package with decent handling and its not slow either, comes with quite a bit of kit as standard. Hers is black and when its polished looks the business. With its price though I think its more aimed at young professionals/daft middle age folk rather than council estate chavvy types. Its better in the 'flesh' than in pictures...
