What are the main differences between a Corsa B sport.. and a Corsa B Sxi?

Lukes old Euro corsa is what I plan to do to my car.. but I dont no if its worth it as I plan to sell in a year or so.. Lukes corsa was a 1.6 sport?

Im going to get one of them.

Also.. I plan to keep it for a year and try and get 1 years no claims and then get something better


I have seen alot of the sxi / sports for around 900.. but with 95,000 + miles

Is that ok? I don't want to be paying out for new engine etc..

Hope you can help

sensible answers please

Thanks

the SXi is a 1.2 16V engine, whereas the sports came in 1.4 16V and 1.6 16V engines.

price probably sounds about right. as long as they've been looked after 95k will be reet.

insurance prices come up ok for 1.6?

As your young, first car and only want to keep it for one year- why not just get a 1.2 or something as the insurance wont be crippiling then

95k on a corsa should be fine as long as it'd been looked after. Sold mine on 135k and as far as I know is still going strong
