Buyer’s guide: the Vauxhall Corsa D story

The Vauxhall/Opel Corsa D model was introduced in the UK in September 2006 as a replacement for the previous Corsa, the ‘C’ model. It was available in 3- and 5-door hatchback, and 3-door van versions with 1.0-litre, 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre petrol engines, and a 1.4-litre turbodiesel engine. The engines are of the four-cylinder double overhead camshaft (DOHC) configuration, in-line type, with the exception of the 1.0-litre petrol engine which is a three-cylinder unit. The engines all have fuel injection and are fitted with a range of emission control systems.

The manual gearbox is of the five- or six-speed all-synchromesh type, with a four-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission optionally available on 1.4-litre petrol engine models. An ‘Easytronic’ manual/automatic transmission is also available on both petrol and diesel engine models. 

All Corsas are front-wheel drive with fully independent front suspension and semi-independent rear suspension with a torsion beam and trailing arms. 

Standard and optional equipment on the Corsa D includes electric power steering, air conditioning, remote central locking, electric windows, electric sunroof, anti-lock braking system, alarm and airbags.
