Vauxhall Corsa Exclusiv 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX Finance

Corsa Exclusiv 1.3 CDTi Flexible Finance Calculator

Buying a Vauxhall Corsa is easier than falling in love with a supermodel. Why? Because those who want the 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX trim can tweak its manufacturer’s finance terms to suit their lifestyles. Let us consider an example. Sally the Supermodel wants a five- door example of this popular supermini. Vauxhall's Flexible Finance Calculator says that its on the road cash price is £15,840 and that Vauxhall will contribute £750 towards her deposit. Good thing too. Sally, you see, has spent all her money on high-heeled shoes so cannot raise an upfront sum. She therefore chooses not to add to the manufacturer's deposit contribution. However she has a big income so opts to buy the car over a short time, specifically two years. This equates to monthly payments of £628.75 which totals £15,840 throughout the contract (including Vauxhall's deposit contribution). However, Sally could make smaller payments over any number of months up to sixty - so her payments could fall as low as £251.50. Plus, if she sells her shoes to raise a deposit her payments would fall even further. And there is more good news for the Sally. However long her contract – and whatever size her deposit – the finance plan's interest rate is 0%.

Vauxhall Corsa Exclusiv 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX Review

The Vauxhall Corsa Exclusiv 1.3 CDTi ecoFLEX is the perfect fashion accessory for supermodels. Why? Because it looks stylish and that is very important in the supermini sector. This complements the 95PS diesel engine that propels it to 62mph in 12.3 seconds. That is decent. What is exceptional, however, is that the Corsa averages – yes averages – a staggering 83.1mpg. This rises to 91.1mpg on the extra-urban cycle and only falls to 74.3mpg in town. The Vauxhall Corsa also has sure-footed handling, nicely weighted steering, excellent visibility, and a respectable ride. Driving to the catwalk is therefore more fun than shopping for fancy footwear. It is practical too. As such, this five-door hatchback has a spacious cabin and a class-competitive 285-litre boot. Plenty of room for shoes, then. Furthermore, cargo capacity can be increased to 1,100-litres by folding the rear seats flat which is similar to some small family cars. The only niggle is that the equipment specification is modest for the price. So - whereas it has a start/ stop system to save fuel and MP3 playback – is lacks alloy wheels and standard-fit air- con. The latter is not a problem for Sally the Supermodel, though - she claims to be “cool enough”.
