News UK's annual motoring awards celebrate the outstanding vehicles of the last 12 months, and are voted by readers of The Sun and The Sunday Times, in which they are able to vote for vehicles across a number of catagories including 'Value Car of the Year', which was won by the current generation Vauxhall Corsa.
Rob Gill, Motors Editor, The Sun, said: “The Vauxhall Corsa is the standout winner of the Value Car of the Year. It is no surprise that the Corsa is the UK's best-selling car so far this year, as it comes packed with comfort features and tech that you need at a sensible price. The Corsa is also great fun to drive, whether you chose electric, petrol or diesel.”
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for the Vauxhall Corsa to be recognised as the UK’s Value Car of the Year, and we would like to thank all the readers of The Sun and The Sunday Times that voted for it. The Corsa has been part of the British automotive landscape for almost 30 years and now the fully-electric version is helping drive Britain to a more sustainable motoring future.”
The Corsa has been on sale in the UK since 1993, and is now on its fifth generation, which is the most advanced yet.
