Has anyone drove the new corsa D???

I've learnt to drive in a corsa C but the thing is my test is in a few weeks, I have one lesson untill my test and just found out my driving instructor is getting a new car!! So now I have one lesson to get use to a new car so i'm a bit worried!! Does anyone know if there is much difference in driving the C to the D?

I failed my last test on observations on manovers - I didn't look in my rear window... so I'm worried that if the D is different I won't look again if im too busy concentrating on the new car?

Just drive how you've been taught! Shouldn't matter what car it is, as long as you do that.

I failed twice before I passed so don't worry about it, take it steady and you'll be fine.

They feel a lot bigger inside but apart from that there isnt much difference. Hardest thing will be the manoverures (sp?).

To be fair your driving instructer should be considerate enough to let you practise more in the new car before you take the test.

i have drove a corsa D 1.4 sxi

there easy to drive steering is abit light tho, only thing that bothers me is the indicators, doesnt feel like you have turned them on when they are so takes ages playing with them which can be annoying.. and there are way too many gadgets on the steering wheel..

all in all its a comfy ride nothing to difficult just like driving any other car

I was parked behind a black D at the filling station not too long back and it does seem a lot bigger than my B....but don't panic. You learnt in a Corsa but that doesn't restrict you to driving only Corsas ;)

Should have taken a pic....older sister with baby sister kinda thing :rolleyes:

Or yer as Riseley said the indicators will take a bit of getting used to. Since you have to flick them on and then they bounce back into the middle (while being on). So just check to make sure they have stayed on and have gone off when you want them to.

The D's are alot heavier than C's and are underpowered, especially the lower engine models

the only difference i think u will notice is the sensitive brakes when u press on them as they will be new, so brake lightly
