Vauxhall (Opel) Corsa Engine Oil Finder

The Opel Corsa is the epitome of small car, a real classic. Vauxhall (or Opel in Europe) has been producing this vehicle since 1982, and it has since rolled off the production line more than ten million times. The sixth generation has been in production as the Opel Corsa F since 2019, and it is the first that is also available as the Vauxhall Corsa-e with an electric motor.

Since 2020, Opel has been equipping its small car with an electronic motor for the first time and letting it roll over the streets as the Corsa-e. But the petrol and diesel engines of this and previous generations of the Opel Corsa are economical and emit relatively little carbon dioxide if they are driven carefully. Of course, careful driving does not mean giving up driving pleasure completely. But a small car is of course still a small car, designed for city driving, where drivers get along perfectly with a Vauxhall Corsa. However, the newer series in particular are also made with the motorway in mind. If drivers also value sportiness in a small car like the Corsa, then the petrol engine with a turbocharger is an option - the only Corsa F that accelerates to 60 mph in well under ten seconds and breaks the top of 110 mph.

The Opel / Vauxhall Corsa is only available as a station wagon and there are no other body style variants planned for it. The only distinction that is on offer with the Corsa is the choice between a three or five-door model. On the other hand, there is a lot of choice when it comes to equipment. In addition to the basic version, the current generation of the Opel Corsa is available in the equipment lines Edition, Elegance, GS-Line and Ultimate, each with an increasing range of equipment. Buyers can also order the Ultimate with a panoramic roof. The Corsa-e has exactly the same equipment lines with one exception - the basic version is called Selection here, but this is also followed by the Edition equipment.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Vauxhall Corsa's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Vauxhall Corsa engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Vauxhall Corsa? Whether you are topping up your Vauxhall Corsa oil or doing a full change of your Vauxhall Corsa's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Vauxhall Corsa models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Vauxhall Corsa.

Alternatives to the Vauxhall Corsa
The first to be mentioned here is the VW Polo, which has been one of the biggest competitors since the start of production. Every small car driver has their own answer to the question 'Polo or Corsa'. The differences are and never were really big. It's more of a matter of faith. Buyers like the Corsa can find a used Polo that is no more than 15 years old for three-digit amounts, depending on the condition and mileage of course.

The Ford Fiesta is a bit bigger than the Corsa and the Polo - at least on the outside. In the interior, however, the space is quite small, but this small car scores a bit better in terms of driving performance. Safety is also rated very highly on the Ford and, like its competitors, the Fiesta has a whole range of driver assistance systems ready. In terms of price, a used Fiesta is roughly in the same range as the competition.

If you like Opel, drive a small car and want to be sporty at the same time, you should take a closer look at the Opel Tigra . The sports coupé doesn't get lost in the gray crowd, it even enjoys cult status today, which is why it's difficult to find a used car.
