You know, I kind of liked the Saturn Astra. Not in an "I'd buy one" sort of way, but I appreciated that it was a stylish European hatchback that made it to our shores. But the one I'd really want is its successor, the Vauxhall Astra VXR, a 279-horsepower hot hatch.
We took a quick glance again at the license plate on the Vauxhall Astra VXR we unveiled to you in today's Morning Shift and did a double take. Ignoring, for a moment, the 280 HP and 290 lb-ft of torque, this may actually be our new favorite thing about GM's upcoming hot hatch.
