    Default Veccy 2.0T vs Astra VXR?

    There's a very nice Astra VXR parked outside my house at the moment and it's got me thinking, is the VXR Astra the same engine as the 2.0T veccy? What's the difference performance wise? How about running costs?

    The astra is a slightly different engine, standard they are 237bhp, performance is pretty good, cheap enough to run to be honest, im getting 28mpg 100% town driving with a few spirited goes. Loads of tuning capacity for them as well and quite comfy to be totally honest.

    I would think the performance would be night and day between the two

    I'm keeping my CDTI for another 12 months I think then its gunna be something with some poke for a couple of years! The veccy vxr keeps catching my eye but theyre few & far between (plus a 2.0t is an easier sell to the wife).

    Having just checked the road tax bands, it's an easier sell to my wallet too!
