ECU tweaks put diesel supermini in second-lowest tax band
8 May 2007

Vauxhall has tweaked the 74bhp 1.3-litre CDTi Corsa diesel to make it greener than ever.While previously the diesel supermini pumped out 124g/km of CO2, it now produces just 119g/km.A small change to the car's engine management should mean more small change in the pockets of owners, because at under 120g/km the diesel Corsa now drops to a lower band of road tax. That means annual road tax is down from £115 to £35.From the 2008/9 tax year, company car users will also feel the benefits, as the car falls into a new, lower tax band.And if Transport for London changes the congestion charge to an emissions charge – as it is planning to, and as is likely to happen across the country eventually – the frugal Corsa could avoid the £8-a-day charge altogether.There's no word from Vauxhall yet as to whether or not existing Corsas can be tweaked retrospectively to lower their emissions.

Our Verdict

Vauxhall Corsa

The Vauxhall Corsa is very refined, stylish and practical. Engines are not so good
