    VXR group test in AutoExpress

    Just been reading the group test between the VXR and the following cars:

    Focus ST-2
    Coralla Compressor
    Golf Gti

    Its a decent review but Ford have come top (they usually do in these types of test in AE). Some good comments on the VXR though regards materials in cabin, pace, grip levels, and the sports exhaust optional extra. (Nice for you thorney )

    Other somments in brief are :

    Servicing - every 20k, 3 services costs around £500. (Vw's around £800!)

    Residuals - Higher than the rest of the range at 44 %

    Economy - The VXR hit 26.4mpg after covering around 1800 miles, and often hit 30mpg on the motorway.


    Results of the test

    1. Focus
    2. Golf
    3. VXR
    4. Corolla

    Shame really it came third but reading between the lines the VXR does sound more the drivers car compared to the rest of them.
