New Vauxhall Corsa VXR Proves Quick On Track But Fidgety On Road

The new Vauxhall  Corsa VXR or Opel Corsa OPC is currently the fastest supermini-based hot hatch that you can buy, but even so, it actually doesn’t feel that way, according to this AutoExpress review.

The UK motoring mag may have also forgotten about the 220 hp Renault Clio RS Trophy; the Clio already did the benchmark sprint to 100 km/h in around 6.5 seconds, so with more power it probably beats this Corsa.
