It has the same silhouette as before, but the styling and interior have been given a thorough overhaul, and there's a number of new petrol engines, including a three-cylinder 1.0-litre with either 89 or 113bhp, and a 99bhp 1.4 turbo.

The non-turbocharged 1.2- and 1.4-litre motors from the previous Corsa are still available, too, along with a revised version of the 1.3-litre diesel, and Vauxhall expects the 1.4 will be the most popular.

The new Corsa majors on comfort and practicality as before, but the revised interior is a big step forward, with more standard kit and better build quality, which transforms its desirability.

Nippy performance from the new turbocharged engines, plus the tweaked suspension mean it drives better too, but still falls well short of challenging the Ford Fiesta when it comes to ride comfort or handling.

Even so, it's easy to drive in town, and comfortable where it counts. The keen pricing will make it attractive to private and company buyers alike, and most Corsa models are great value, but choosing which one suits your needs could be tricky.

The 113bhp 1.0 is available in only a few trims - either very basic inside but with Style and Attitude, or in limited edition trims that are too expensive to recommend, so it's best avoided.

The lower-powered 1.0-litre version is just as refined and easy-going, and while also limited to certain trims, they all offer a good balance of price versus equipment, so this engine looks set to be the pick of the line-up.

While nippy performance from the 1.4-litre turbo and its lower price will appeal, the refinement and high CO2 emissions let it down, so be sure you can live with these things if you're considering it.

We'll have to get it up against its key rivals in the UK before making a final verdict, but on initial impression it looks to be a seriously strong contender in this hard-fought class.

It starts off at £8999, undercutting pretty much every single rival including the "budget brand" Skoda Fabia - and you get more standard equipment with the Corsa.

This has all it needs to be the best supermini on sale.
