    Default 1.2 twinport - Corsa engine

    Hi all,

    I've successfully converted my girlfriend out of a Ford into a Vauxhall, she has put a deposit of a 55plate Corsa 'Design' with the above engine!

    Has anyone had any dealings with it? - It's not one of them comedy 3 cyclinder things thats in the 1.0 12v is it?

    Thanks

    As above. Mrs Duncan has a 1.2 TP Corsa SXi+ and it runs very nicely.

    Chain driven so no cambelts to worry about either.

    I hired one in scotland it was a very nippy little car I was very impressed with it, the car did not hang about for a 1.2 either, and yes I think it is a 4 pot too. nice little car I must say.

    Had a new 1.2 Corsa as a loan car over the last few days and it was the worst engine i've ever driven and that was the 3 cyclinder one, where i have had a 1.2 twinport older Corsa before and that was a cracking little car....

    Had one for the day a few months back twinport 1.2, very nippy indeed. Couldn`t help but keep giving it full welly everywhere. Puts my wifes 1.2 16v 1999 to shame.

    - the 1.2 has always been four cylinder. The only 3 cylinder has been the 1.0 12v - which I agree are awful!!
