The Vauxhall VXR8 is a fast cruiser with lots of comfort and great performance. It's available as a hatchback or saloon and as an estate; all are excellent creations.
There's no doubt the Vauxhall VXR8 is a muscle car because of the 6.2 litre V8 petrol engine under the bonnet. The engine delivers excellent levels of performance and will go from 0 to 62 mph in less than five seconds and on to a top speed of 155 mph. The engine delivers 425 bhp using a limited slip differential for the all-wheel drive system and help deliver the standout performance drivers are looking for. Opt for the VXR8 GTS and the engine produces 576bhp. It is not the cheapest of engines to run and will return around 20 mpg with emissions of 363g/km, with those figures being slightly lower for the automatic gearbox option. The VXR8 is great to drive around town but really comes into its own when cruising on motorways, it's an assured performer with plenty of power on tap when needed.
Despite the fact there so much power under the bonnet, the Vauxhall VXR8 is a comfortable and great handling car; the steering is accurate with good feedback and with a split differential, it's a sound performer at speed when cornering as well. This also means winding country roads are an exhilarating experience and lots of the mechanical parts and technology have been taken directly from the excellent Insignia, the VXR8 has an upgraded suspension to deal with the boost in power and provide better handling at speed.
However, the interior is very similar with a few sporty additions to help deliver flair though the headroom is tight for tall people in the hatchback and saloon versions. The VXR8 is cheaper than many of its rivals and has more equipment on board as standard to help make it a better proposition. Indeed, the materials have a premium feel and the most recent revamp saw an infotainment system being added with an 8-inch touchscreen so there are fewer buttons to deal with on the dash. Drivers will also get to enjoy the flat bottomed steering wheel, dark headlining as well as aluminium-trimmed pedals.
The best part of the cabin is the seats, leather seats are an option, but the sport seats hug the body well when the car is being put through its paces; they have a low driving position and yet deliver lots of comfort and support. They are also very good seats for long journeys as well. Drivers will also enjoy the suspension driving modes which include sport, normal and VXR which really shows what the car can do.
Essentially, for the money, the Vauxhall VXR8 delivers an impressive car that is good as any of its rivals and, in some, instances better.
