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.


 

 

Doesn't even get a stereo as standard and electric windows and air-conditioning aren't even options. It is possible to spec some serious race inspired extras if you plan track work

There is a small boot behind the engine which will hold holiday luggage if you're prepared to travel light. Inside there's a storage net behind the seats but no glovebox

Built and developed by Lotus so you know it is going handle well. This means it also offers a surprisingly compliant ride - it's not the rock hard bone shaker you'd expect. Steering is beautifully responsive.

Crucially, the VX has ABS brakes and a driver's airbag which the Elise does not. The passenger isn't so lucky. An alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks should keep it safe but that roof isn't very resilient.

The VX doesn't quite match the Elise for residual value but it is still pretty good and even the Turbo will get over 30mpg. Vauxhall dealers are rather cheaper and more abundant than Lotus counterparts.

Early ones were a little flaky in the cabin, but build and materials are generally very impressive. Vauxhall units are very reliable and since the VX weighs so little, engines get an easy life.
