Vauxhall Corsa Dimensions Guide

The Vauxhall Corsa is a small car that is easy to drive and comes with a decent helping of high-tech features.

It is available with either three or five-doors so you can opt for the version that best suits your requirements. If you’re looking to lease a small car, the Vauxhall Corsa is a superb choice.

The three-door Corsa model measures 4,021mm long, 1,736mm wide and is 1,479mm tall. This means it is not as wide as a Peugeot 208 and is only a few millimetres bigger than the Hyundai i20 and the Ford Fiesta. In addition, the three-door Corsa is taller than the 208, the Fiesta and the Nissan Micra but not as tall as the i20.

The five-door Vauxhall Corsa is the same length as the three-door but is marginally taller and wider. Height-wise the five-door measures 1,481mm while width wise it is 1,746mm. This makes the five-door wider than the 208 and the Micra but it is still narrower than a Citroen C3.

The wheelbase of both the three and five-door Corsa is 2,510mm.

The Vauxhall Corsa is fairly spacious for a car of this class offering slightly more space than the Fiesta.  Up front, there is ample head and legroom for the driver and front passenger. There is also a decent amount of space between driver and passenger so you don’t feel like you’re sat on top of each other. In addition, the driver’s seat comes with a range of adjustable settings to make it easier to find the most comfortable driving position. The roomy front door bins are large enough to take a bottle of water, while the large cup holders in the central console are ideal for takeaway drinks.

There is just enough space in the Corsa for three adults to squeeze in on the rear passenger seats side-by-side. While the three-door models do benefit from wide-opening doors if you are regularly carrying rear passengers the five-door is the more practical choice. In the rear of the three-door Corsa, you will find handy bottle holders, whereas in the five-door models you get the benefit of rear door bins.

vauxhall corsa boot space

The boot space of the three-door Corsa is 280-litres with the seats up and 1,090-litres with the seats down. While in five-door models it is slightly larger at 285-litres with the seats up and 1,120-litres when the seats are down. It is worth noting that the seating setup in the Corsa is not massively versatile with you having to opt for a higher spec model to gain 60/40 split folding rear seats. It is also possible to opt for an adjustable boot floor which makes loading easier and gives you a small covered storage area for goods.

The turning circle of the Vauxhall Corsa is 11m which is larger than average for a car in this class. However, the fuel tank of both petrol and diesel engines is a handy 45-litres.

Depending on which engine you go for the Corsa has a maximum possible braked towing capacity of 1,150kg. This is more than enough for you to hook up a trailer to take rubbish to the skip.
