What should I be paying?
Prices start at £17,995 - £1,000 cheaper than the old one - and works out around £400 cheaper than the equivalent trim Fiesta ST2. But with the recommended Performance Pack taking the price to £20,395, in reality the Corsa is quite a bit more expensive than its Blue Oval adversary - which of course doesn't have the option of an LSD.
If you're into track days though, the Performance Pack Corsa is better suited for your needs than an ST. And with the RenaultSport Clio going soft, this is now the pick of the bunch at that end of the hot hatch spectrum. It gives the Corsa VXR convincing character at last.
