“Bang for your buck is key here, you can't argue with...”

Written on: 25/08/2010

Bang for your buck is key here, you can't argue with the 6.1sec 0-60 or 240ps... I do 60k miles a year (not in the 'stra', its for the mrs) and the naf speakers, lack of ash tray, 30mpg, £250per tyre, wearing ride and an engine too keen to cruise are not suited for long drives. However its very quick and a real treat for short journys. If you buy one drive it hard!
I've had the privelage of driving an edition 30 Golf which is better built, smoother and more refined but significantly more… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2009 by adam cott (1 review written)

If you like smiling, and i feel fairly confident in presuming that the vast majority of people do, you can do far worse than to take a trip to your local Vauxhall dealer and purchase a Vauxhall Astra VXR.
When you see it, you'll smile. When you sink into the supportive yet amazingly comfortable seats, you'll smile. When you turn the ignition, hear the engine turn over and watch the dials come to life, you'll smile. When you press the accelerator......i think you can see where this is… Read Full Review

“Build quality in the Vauxhall Astra VXR is good,...”

Written on: 04/12/2007 by PugHeaven (2 reviews written)

Build quality in the Vauxhall Astra VXR is good, safety features are numerous and WORK, with all the gadgets on the car, I did think weight would be an issue, but no, the car can still pull away in 3rd gear from the lights and have BMW 3.6 Turbo's crying into their steering wheels. Overall, this car is certainly a fun drive, insurance is not too bad depending on age and the company of choice. I think this car is for the slightly older man, looking to re-kindle some of the fires of youth… Read Full Review
