Bumper month for the Vauxhall Corsa

The Vauxhall Corsa was the top selling car for Vauxhall for the month of September

The Vauxhall Corsa was the top selling car for Vauxhall for the month of September selling 14,249 units.

The Vauxhall Corsa proves to be a very affordable car, every Vauxhall Corsa model except the Corsa VXR now has lower emissions and improved fuel economy and Vauxhall has also added more standard equipment. The updated Vauxhall Corsa ecoFLEX version turns in an impressive 76.3mpg, along with 117g/km of carbon dioxide emissions to qualify for low-rate road tax. The 1.0-litre now produces 65PS (up 5PS), yet emits just 117g of CO2, dropping it two VED bands and meaning that owners now pay just £35 per year in road tax, down from £120, and none at all from next April.

Three out of the five best selling cars in September were Vauxhalls; coming in behind the Vauxhall Corsa is the Vauxhall Astra. The popularity of the new Vauxhall Astra hatch, the Vauxhall Astra range is yet again a market leader in the lower-medium sector, with sales of 12,465 cars last month. The Vauxhall Astra range also topped in-segment sales in the retail sector (15.74 per cent), as well as the fleet sector (19.70 per cent), illustrating its appeal to both private and fleet buyers.
