It's hardly surpising that we use Vauxhall Corsas. Described by What Car as "refined, comfortable and pretty good to drive. Running costs are affordable and the cabin spacious".
Carbuyer said "The Vauxhall Corsa is a firm fixture in the UK's best sellers list – and with good reason. The spacious supermini offers practicality and comfort on a par its rivals and gets plenty of interior storage, including a large glovebox and an optional two-tier boot floor. Following a mechanical refresh in 2010, the Corsa received a brand-new face and a series of interior updates to bring it back up to date with more modern competition. It is comfortable and nippy around town.
We find that they are ideal cars for learners as they are not too challenging while still presenting enough of a challenge to ensure that you are not surprised by whatever you move on to (Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamboghinis etc excepted).
