    NEW Astra VXR 1.8 - Due 2010




    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/au...astra_vxr.html

    It seems it's been done to lower emissions & tax costs.


    I did a quick search and couldn't find another topic about this.

    Thats what I thought. It looks like they've just "borrowed" the bumper gill things and the rear diffuser too.

    The interior still looks cheap next to a Golf.


    However, the exterior looks better than the current VXR IMO, even if the new one does just look like a bigger Corsa.

    Vauxhalls interiors have never been the best. Some are ok though.

    Head lights and bonnet kinda look like the new focus. But yeah does look like a bit like a corsa. Ain't 2010 the year for the new Astra? Just doesn't seem to be too much of an improved really.
