    Default Hot Mk5 Astra?

    On the way to work this morning I was behind an 05 plate Astra 2.0T and it got me thinking, did Vauxhall make a 'hot' version? I assumed it would have been a GSI like pre-face veccy but google hasn't turned anything up. Did VX make a GSI/VXR equivalent of the mk5 or was the 2.0T I was behind today considered 'hot'?

    I don't really understand why Vx dont make 5 door versions of the Astra VXR? Surely they are missing a trick here.
    Ford make 5 door versions of the Focus ST and VW do a 5 door versions of Golf GTI and R32/36
