    Default What the Heck has happened to the performance on the New Vec?!!

    Just looking at the performance figures of the new Vec and I do hope they have got them wrong. The 0-60 times are very much down on the current model.

    e.g.
    SRi 2.2 Direct new - 9.7s
    SRi 2.2 Direct old - 8.6s

    SRi 1.9CDti (150) Direct old - 8.8s
    SRi 1.9CDti (150) Direct new - 9.8s

    SRi 2.0T Direct old - 8.1s
    SRi 2.0T Direct new - 9.1s

    What the hell have they done to it!!! It'll be as slow as an old dog with Mondeos and craap overtaking it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You could be right there. Looking at the CO2 for the old 2.2 Direct, and its 185 whereas the new is 180. The CDTi 150 was 159 and the new one is 157. But that small drop has dropped a second off the 0-60 time!!!!!!

    well it will certainly make our 'pre facelift' models the ones to go for.

    Maybe they are making the fresh line up slow so when the new twin turbo big boys and the vxr come it makes them look even faster lol
