The Vauxhall Nova represented the first attempt by General Motors' European operation to launch a supermini - and a very successful one it was too. The little car (called the 'Opel Corsa' on the continent) had very restrained styling but was bang up to date underneath that conservative bodywork. There was a vast range of trim levels and engines, as Vauxhall attempted to create the perfect Nova for just about everyone.
By the time the Nova was succeeded by a newer supermini (now universally called 'Corsa') in April 1993, it was just under 10 years old; to be honest, the model's age was showing. For most of the Eighties it battled the Metro, Fiesta, Peugeot 205 and Renault 5 very successfully, but the age of the chassis and prematurely dated styling were too hard to hide in its last years.
For the money, a Nova offers a good alternative to Ford's Fiesta. It's practical, cheap and reliable and for many of us, that's ideal.
