Our Fleet: Vauxhall Corsa - First Report

Vauxhall Corsa

Getting the specification right on our new Corsa wasn't as easy as it could have been, writes John Mahoney

Recently, I've had an embarrassing problem with my specs life - I wanted to keep our Corsa simple in terms of specification, but fell at the first hurdle.

Choosing the 80PS 1.2-litre petrol for our Corsa was the easy bit - it's the sweetest engine in the range - but it is unavailable on base Expression trim. So make it a Life, then? No, because driving without the full airbag compliment sounded risky, so we settled on a Club, which was fine, until days before its arrival I realised Club doesn't come with aircon. Cue images of steamed-up windows and sweltering hot temperatures.

Fortunately, by fluke, someone had added chilled air (£500), so disaster averted.
