    I think IF they do make one, it will be a 5 door astra VXR diesel to test the water...It would be interesting and there is certainly a market for it ...

    and the fact that it has 2 exhausts which you dont normally associate to the 5 door turbo model

    The 4x4 astra pics are here:

    i would say that you would see a mk6 with 4x4 as the mk5 is a few years old now
    the twin exhausts could be a 5 door VXR kind of thing
    but they need a VXRD do go with them now days if you ask me
    the new vectra needs to have this also as the ford ST tdci mondeo is a tool in the new shape dont try to keep up with one in a 150bhp 1.9cdti vectra

    on this i would say that the 1.9twin turbo will not happen as the 1.9cdti is at the end of the road soon as it will be replaced with a 2.0cdti lump some time soon this should be a twin turbo lump but i cant see it being in the astra first i would say it will be in the first sporty new vectra vxrd ???????
