  • corsa d

    right guys i know its not a vxr but my girlfriend is looking to get a corsa d, she just wants smaller engine and get a decent amount of mpg compared to her suzuki jimny

    can someone explain the difference between each of the versions between the 1litre to 1.3 litres?

    i.e whats the diff between 1.0 ecoflex s, 1.0 ecoflex energy and 1.0 life also 1.2sxi?

    is it only the 1.3 diesel that comes in 6-speed? what other version diesels are there?

    what version would yous reccomend she get?

    finally whats the power output of each?

    right here goes the 1.0 models all have the same engine,the life and energy are like having an sri or a vxr,energy and life are the models of car,the 1.3 is a turbo diesel and has a 6 speed box in the sxi and the only others that have this are the sri turbo and the vxr,hope this helps,go for the 1.3 sxi as it has all the goodies,its 90 bhp and is quicker than all the other corsa's except the turbo sri and the vxr

      cheers hoggy, so would you recommend the 1.3 cdti? has the most ooomph out of the others, the 6-speed box and is a diesel,

      or get a simple 1.0l and get the irmscher kit for a bit of looks?

      cash wise to buy there pretty much the same

          i bought my son a new 1.0 and put the full kit on it,sold it within weeks and bought a 1.3 sxi cdti 90 bhp model,we put the full kit on it and hes had it a year now and doesnt moan at all,its now a full vxr rep apart from the wheels and hes got a tuning box on it which takes the power up to about 110-115 bhp,it does 50 mpg and will sit on the motorway all day long doing 90 ish,dont get the 1.0 as it couldnt pull the socks of a dead man

              cheers hoggy thats what i sort of had in mind for hers, try get her the vxr rep yet she still gets the mpg, and i swayed towards the diesel as i know you can get a box from abyss or whoever

                            don't get the 5 speed mate,the 6 speed 100mph is 3,000 revs.
