Has anyone got the corsa e with the automatic gearbox? If so how do you find it? Smooth? Clunky? Efficient? Do you feel like you can accelerate quicker with the car doing the gear changes for you? What's kick down like when you put your foot down?

I've never found Automatics to be that responsive, I've had to use a couple as courtesy cars before.

Their MPG is usually quite poor, although they do seem to be improving the economy if Automatics.

I Have the SE, 6 Speed Automatic and find the response far better than the old Corsa D. I was lucky to have a 10 minute Test Drive of a New Corsa E SE Auto before deciding to purchase and I was very impressed with the Comfort & Drive.

Have now had mine nearly 4 Months now & still very impressed.

To me feels very smooth and hardly notice any gear changes from 2nd up wards etc.

Only had to use Kick Down once so far & all seemed ok.

Best if you can get a test drive yourself if possible.

Fuel economy figures are much lower for the Automatics ? Have you looked at the VX comparison tables ??

Thanks craige, will be very interested in your results as best I have achieved so far is 35.25 mpg over 190miles of mixed Urban/Motorway routes M27/A27 from Lee-On-The-Solent, Hampshire to Brighton & return etc.
