If you bought a Corsa then you would have to drive a Corsa
In all seriousness, the earlier Corsas were very poor cars, very much built down to a price, the build was poor, the ride and handling was bad (just a cheap car)
the lower capacity Vauxall engines were horrible gutless things - the bigger, ones were often a little more powerfull than the Fords (Petrol)
So traditionally the Ford had better handling, better, more comfortable ride, and better build quality (interior etc)
As time went on, the Corsa improved (when new models were released) so the later models were much better compared to earlier ones (The Fiesta is a better car IMO)
Often, you will pay a bit more for a Fiesta than a similar age/ spec of Corsa, there is a reason/ reasons for that..........
I personally still favor the Ford though and would choose a Ford over a Vaxhall (my pesonal choice- after owning a 1.9 diesel Vectra - what a piece of )

I had one as my first car, and it was great. Only thing that ever went wrong was the gearbox, and that was my fault!! (never try put it in gear when you haven't pushed the clutch down!)
I think it will be a little biased view here... I'm guessing if you went on a corsa forum and asked the same question youd get a different answer lol

Electrical faults, steering vague, gutless engine and a horror to drive.
Only reason she keeps it is because she can't afford to replace it.
I advised her to get a fiesta and she regrets not listening now.

The corsa may be cheaper in the beginning but will cost you more in the long run.

Buy one off the web, get the blade cut by a high street key cutter and then find a local auto locksmith to code it to your car with an IDS pad.
Far cheaper than Ford will skin you for.
