    The GSI is disappointing. If a VXR is released later sales of the GSI will plummet. If a VXR isn't released Vauxhall will lose customers.

    260ps ... 0-60mph in 6.9s .... Yawn!

    The body kit is smart, but underneath is a lowered Elite with a visual makeover and some better seats.

    Disappointing if that's all that will be on offer.

    must be the 90's again...cavalier GSI 4x4 was slower on the road vs the regular SRI red top.
    this new model at that power level won't overcome the 4wd weight gains and afterall its really just a retuned Astra J VXR engine...won't suit the car at all when pushed and its mpg probably won't be that great if driving hard ...

    Having wanted a Siggy VXR since day 1 i'm happy with mine as is...running costs and all.

    I just played with the UK Vx stie to configure an Elite maxed out with the gadgets and that 2.0 4x4 engine etc and its dearer than the VXR...ooops Vx and i can't see the GSI being cheaper...so less car performance, less growl from under the bonnet yet more money.
