Vauxhall VX220 rivals

The British car buying public doesn’t see Vauxhall as a sports car producer and sales for VX220 were disappointing especially when it was a very similar proposition to the Lotus Elise. Which badge would you prefer? However, the arrival of the Turbo has made it rather more popular as it offers more performance than the Elise, and at a lower price. In fact, it offers performance and value at unrivalled levels.
