A little secret for you. The Corsa B Sxi's that were made in 2000 shared the same newer engine from the Corsa C Sxi's. Therefore exactly the same!

performance is not the same..... The suspension is better "good for round de twistys"

I dont really know this but i'll say it anyway..... The corsa C is lighter

Vauxhall did use the same 1.2 16v engine from the C in the last few run offs for the Corsa B! I found this out when I had my engine conversion and had to take the 1.2 16v out!

I had a 1999 SXi and now have a 2003 SXi, both have around the same performace (nothing majorly different) but the handling and ride on the new sxi is much much better than the old sxi

Corsa C is slightly heavier I think. By about 40 kg.

Bhp figures from the manufacturer also can't be trusted... apparently they underquoted the corsa B for insurance purposes...

Best way, get em both weighed and get em both RR'd on the same RR...

Would be quite interested in the result actually...
