  • I'm impressed with..

    ...the hill start assist on the VXR

    To be honest I didn't think it would work as well as it does!

    For those that know Chester, if you go past the racecourse and up the hill to the lights at the top, it's a bl**dy steep hill, well I was at the lights and thought I'd try the hill assist....works very very well indeed

    Best thing since sliced bread imo.

    Such a feature is an option on most cars!

                The standard options the Corsa VXR comes with is pretty decent! Cruise control... I can see myself using that when I start my new job and buy one haha.

                I would deffo spec climate and the sight and light pack, just for a bit of convinience and residual value down the line.

                  S&L is well worth it.. specially due to where the light switch is positioned.

                  I never got climate control tho lol

                        I had climate control on both my insignia elite and zafira elite...never used it! Would much rather have the dial for hot and cold + aircon.

                        auto wipers are cr** again much rather flick them on myself when i need them, auto lights are OK but can be a pain if you go through a lot of tunnels The amount of people that flash you is amazing

                        Think you get the rear view anti dazzle thing as well...now that's worth having

                            yes got the anti dazzle rear view mirror in mine, excellent when it turns dark green when a car comes up behind you, and then goes back to normal when there nothing behind you.
