Vauxhall Astra VXR (2012 – )

The hottest hot hatch at the time of its launch, the 280bhp Vauxhall Astra VXR is a bit of an animal. But, despite its hilarious pace it’s not too noisy or uncomfortable when you want to relax.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

After the vibrant exterior, the cabin is less appealing, but that’s what you tend to find with hot versions of mainstream cars. The main changes are a smaller steering wheel for a more direct drive, VXR sports seats, black headlining, and leather details with coloured stitching. A full leather pack for the seats is also available. It’s comfortable for front passengers, but rear occupants get a very limited view of the action and can find the seating claustrophobic. The lack of a touchscreen (now standard in several competitors) in the centre console also means there are more buttons to figure out than is ideal. Those front seats really hold you in place though, and the cabin is also surprisingly refined when you’re not going for it.
