Control of pollutant emissions is generally good or adequate and the score in this part of the assessment reflects this strong performance. In the cold test, control of particulate number is marginal and, in the high-load highway test, that of carbon monoxide is weak.

Our verdict

The iconic Opel/Vauxhall Corsa is due to be replaced later this year with a Peugeot-Citroën derived model. The car tested here is the fifth-generation Corsa E, developed under GM. With a one-litre 66 kW engine, and meeting Euro 6d-temp regulations, the car performed very well for Clean Air, with generally low pollutant emissions. After-treatment includes a three-way catalyst and gasoline particulate filter, which work well to keep emissions well controlled. Energy efficiency is also generally good, and just above the four-star threshold. In the high-load highway test, efficiency is marginal, and it is here that the maximum fuel consumption of 7.4 l/100 km is recorded. Four stars is a creditable result for a petrol-engined vehicle, and the Corsa performs especially well in its control of pollutant emissions.
