The Vauxhall VXR range is a thrilling range of high-powered vehicles that focuses on speed, performance, and gorgeous racing aesthetics. The VXR range comprises the Corsa VXR, Corsa VXR Clubsport, Astra VXR, New Insignia VXR SuperSport, and the VXR8. Each model in this line fulfils Vauxhall's intention of making cars that connect to the driver and connect to the road, giving an exhilarating experience every time.
Every VXR model has been sculpted and modelled to perfection, each production vehicle representing a labour of love from Vauxhall to enhance the potential drive experience. Exterior additions to the VXR line include such styling cues as rear roof spoilers, a honeycomb sports front grille with an air dam/bumper, and unique VXR front fog lights with alloy-effect surround. VXR side sills, the VXR rear bumper which incorporates a diffuser, and the VXR triangular centre exit exhaust tailpipe are amongst the other common signifiers of the range's capabilities.
Inside, the VXR line is as sports-focused as it is on the outside; Recaro shell-backed sports front seats with Morrocana-trimmed side bolsters and integral head restraints provide the right ambience for committed drivers, and again the VXR logo is frequently highlighted across the interior of the cabin. The mood of the cabin can be intensified further through use of the CD and MP3 CD player with AUX-in and stereo radio, and air conditioning arrives as standard to maintain desired temperatures.
Different engines are available for each of the vehicles in the VXR line, all offering heart-racing levels of performance. This reaches its apotheosis in the Insignia VXR Supersport, the 2.8 litre V6 engine of which can thrust it from 0-62mph in 5.6 seconds - a figure not far from that of a supercar.
Despite the focus on speed and performance, Vauxhall has not forgotten its dedication to driver and passenger safety. The VXR range features driver, passenger and curtain airbags, as well as drive systems such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with traction control.
The all new Corsa VXR will be at Toomey Basildon in May and with prices starting at £17,995 on the road it will be affordable as well. It will feature a 1.6l turbocharged engine reaching speeds of 143 mph and 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds. The chassis has also been improved and now features Koni FSD technology allowing expert handling without compromising comfort.
New Corsa VXR boasts a rear spoiler, twin Remus exhaust pipes and six exterior colour options, including Flash Blue (unique to this model). Inside, you'll find standard Recaro seats, a leather flat-bottomed steering wheel and sports pedals, plus VXR gear-lever and instruments. Heated windscreen and IntelliLink connectivity come as standard.
Our optional New Corsa VXR Performance Package offers even sharper dynamics, with a Drexler limited-slip differential, larger-diameter Brembo front brake discs (330mm), 18-inch alloy wheels and more focused FSD damper settings.
