A handsome car that handles, rides and goes every bit as
well as its coupe sister. It's practical, too, thanks to
good cabin and boot space.
Based on the old Astra. The interior is a rather dull. A
soft top will never be as secure as a steel roof, and side
airbags should come as standard.
The Corsa is a sharp looker next to many rivals, and it
feels peppy to drive. It gets better the faster it goes,
and is capable on motorways. There's a long list of
security kit and a big boot.
The cabin is rather cramped for four passengers and the
trim materials are dour to look at. Standard kit is
miserly, despite a recent face-lift.
The Vectra is a stylish, good-to-drive family or fleet
car, with a much improved interior and far more space. It
was our Family Car of the Year 2003 in hatch form.
Some engines are either out-punched or dirtier than those
in the rival Ford Mondeo, which still delivers a sharper
Flex Space folding-seat system makes the Meriva extremely
practical. It is a superb all-rounder, manoeuvrable around
town and enjoyable to drive.
The Meriva came last in our Visibility Tests 2003, with
the forward view coming in for special criticism. The
1.8-litre engine is raucous at speed.
