    yeah out of the 3 it would be a golf

    but only if your talking performance hatches,

    astra vxr, focus st or a golf gti

    if it was just standard cars, id get the focus to be fair

    yer im looking at the standard versions really, i dont fancy paying stupid insurance costs. Some in mind are Focus 1.6 tdci, astra 1.6 sxi or 1.9 cdti 150bhp. Golf wise it would be a 1.9 gt tdi

    5th gear did a review on this. Vicky Butler Henderson took the vixxer and the focus st and straight line the vixxer had it slightly, round the track the st took it.

    Found it.
