    I can see you point, just thought the 1.4 power was so disappointing. It was a much smoother power delivery etc, but I felt it made the drive really boring. Every one is different, personally, I prefer cars to be a bit raw.
    I've got a 1.0 Nissan which I use as a daily car. Round town, it's much easier to drive than the VXR, whose gear ratios make slow driving a complete pain. On B roads and motorways, the opposite is true.
    SAVE THE VXR AND STOP BUYING SUV TOSH!

    My mate at work has a Corsa E white edition 1.4T 150bhp. Goes really well. So much better than the older 1.4T. Good alternative to the VXR

    Hi mate, would it be possible you ask him what sort of MPG he gets? Right now I’m getting like 35-38MPG which seems slightly bad? And thts driving sensible. Maybe it’s because it’s only done 89 miles on the clock ?

    Cheers

    It's strange how bad the MPG is on it. its like 35. basically the same as a vxr

    iv got the 1.4t in my gtc le and it does go really well, also had a 1.4 corsa for 10 days and it was really slow, the turbo makes such a difference
