    My old man has just bought a Veccy VXR estate and is very pleased with it. Loads of torque and easy to drive. I have not driven it yet but been in the passenger seat and it feels nice, seats are lovely and comfortable and supportive.

    Nothing like a Astra VXR or GSI because a lot bigger and V6 but if you need that size car it is great.

    they are good cars, I think. Doesnt feel as heavy as a VXR8, very smooth to drive makes a lovely v6 sound.

    As for corners, as long as you dont take the mick they can corner just fine.
