The all-new fourth-generation Vauxhall Corsa is unquestionably one of the most significant cars the brand has launched in recent years. The supermini is the manufacturer's most popular model in the UK and in fact it is the third best-selling car in Britain, behind the Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta.

Vauxhall is hoping the latest Corsa can clinch the top spot from the Fiesta, with a raft of updates including more kit, better engines and sharper looks. The big news is the addition of an all-new 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, which gives Vauxhall a direct rival to the Ford Fiesta 1.0-litre EcoBoost. It's available with either 89bhp or 113bhp, with the more potent version being the quickest Corsa currently available. For hot hatch fans, a racy VXR model will arrive next year, which could develop up to 200bhp.

Another tactic Vauxhall has employed to help increase the supermini's appeal is by slashing prices. The new model starts at only £8,995, undercutting the Fiesta by around £1,000, with list prices across the Corsa lineup reduced by up to £3,000 over the outgoing model.

The other good news is that the Corsa remains as practical as it was before, due to the overall shape being left untouched. The A, B and C pillars are identical to the previous model, which doesn't make the Corsa look dramatically different in terms of style but it does mean its as spacious as ever, with enough room for three passengers in the rear.

They also have a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SRi 3-door review here: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/vauxhall/corsa/89022/vauxhall-corsa-14-sri-3-door-review

In it they say it's good but the 1.0 litre 3-pot is the one they would opt for.

In isolation, this new Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 is a fine supermini - but once you've sampled it with the new 1.0-litre three-pot engine that's already turned the Adam city car from a runt to a contender, there's no overlooking it as the version to plump for if funds allow. The 1.4 is okay, but it appreciably restricts this much-improved new Corsa from truly shining.

Vauxhall had a huge challenge to update the Corsa given their difficult financial situation, so they've done a great job. I owned a Corsa until 2011, covering 50K miles in it - enjoyed the car immensely.
