Corsa's now are so popular because they're small and 'sporty', not sure what the deal is with the body kit that's similar to the Zetec S, but you see it on practically all of them, with naff 17 inch wheels to go with. 

Fiestas are more popular obviously, but you get a good range of Fiestas from the Edge, Zetec, Zetec S and the s1600 / metal's, + the new face lift. 

 

Newer Corsa's are either shockingly boring (and what is the 5 door about, totally different shape to the 3 door), or shockingly cheap looking with crappy alloys and very very poor spoilers.

The Corsa range is just confusing, so many overlaps and no real difference in spec. You get a sub-par car with a body kit and big wheels, that look like tat.

Yup, that is a big factor for Corsa since a long time. I chose Corsa because Fiesta (1995-1999, and even the facelift 2000) looks horrible. Regardless how well it dives, it is plain ugly!

I'd rather have ugly than boring.
Many a good drive has been had on a muddy chassis ;)

With apologies to the thread starter......I am wondering, since Mazda 323 Fastback (1996-1998) is considered quite a reliable car with good driving experience, how would Ford owners compare that with Ford cars? which Ford cars (models before 2003) beat that?

The 323 had the same shell as the Escort, the 121 was made alongside the Fiesta on the same production lines (in some model years) the Engines were different though

Front grilles and badges and that's about it.

Holden have always had a mix of GM cars, I changed my Chevrolet Matiz to Holden spec, always got a few looks, despite being a Matiz :P

 

Opel, Chevrolet, Holden, Vauxhall, Pontiac - they're always interchanged.

I was actually talking about this car Mazda 323 F 1996-1998. 

It is pretty good in terms of reliability, engine power, handling, etc, but the interior looks quite outdated. Looks like it is from the 1980's....lol

(sorry for the links, I couldn't upload any pictures)
