Corsa 'is the UK's favourite supermini'

Fri, 23 Jan 2009
People looking at buying a car with low running costs may be tempted by a Vauxhall Corsa, after hearing the results of a recent poll.

In a Road Test Reports survey to find the top supermini in the UK, the vehicle drove away with 35 per cent of the vote.

Other popular models were the Honda Jazz - in second place - and the Ford Fiesta, which clinched third spot.

The website admitted the results of the poll had not come as much of a surprise.

It highlighted figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders which showed the company had shifted 99,574 Corsas in 2008 - sending the vehicle straight to the top of the supermini sales chart.

Commenting on all three top models, Road Test Reports spokeswoman Faye Sunderland stated: "It bodes well for Vauxhall, Honda and Ford to see that people don't just buy these cars but … that they are [also] satisfied with their purchase."

Meanwhile, Labour MP Andrew Miller recently said the excellent work carried out at Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port manufacturing plant was a great reason for people to buy British.
