    Vauxhall Mokka SE 1.7 CDTi 4x4 review

    By 3 February 2014

    SUVs. We all love to hate them. Or do until we grow up, have a couple of kids or move to somewhere slightly suburban where driving up a farm track or dodgy side road isn't the same as in a city car. It's then that cars such as the 4x4 Vauxhall Mokka seem...

    This week it's all about the gaming. We've crunched through both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console reviews, alongside a stack of games to get you in the mood for next-gen. But we're far more versatile than that. Never the one-trick pony, we've also...

    Hands-on: Vauxhall Cascada review

    By 11 March 2013

    The Vauxhall Cascada is the company's latest attempt at shaking off its rather grey and glum reputation. It follows on from the likes of the Adam and Astra GTC, both far more shapely than anything Vauxhall had offered previously. This is also the first...

    Hands-on: Vauxhall Adam review

    By 7 November 2012

    If you’re the sort of person who names their car, then you’ll perhaps be pleased to hear that from early next year Vauxhall will sell you one that comes pre-named: Adam. We’ll leave the obvious and easy name puns to you, but if you think Adam’s...

    Vauxhall Astra GTC SRI CDTI review

    By 6 July 2012

    We’ve already had a day of seat time in the almost comically overpowered VXR version of the Astra GTC. But what if your tastes - and frankly - your wallet, would prefer something a little more restrained and economical? Enter the (deep breath) Astra...

    Vauxhall Astra VXR review

    By 18 June 2012

    The hot hatch is the preserve of young, enthusiastic petrolheads the country over. No doubt seen as a blight by some, these cars offer staggering performance at an incredibly reasonable price. Well, it's reasonable before your insurance company tells...

    By 19 September 2011

    Last week, Pocket-lint got its hands on the very first Vauxhall Ampera to hit UK shores. This is not the finished car, but it's pretty close to it. Aside from having its steering wheel on the wrong side, it gives a very complete feel for how the UK model...

    Vauxhall announce the VXR8

    By 26 February 2007

    The Monaro was, quite simply, motoring genius. Vauxhall’s decision to axe the muscle car was a blow to many, but one that’s been cushioned considerably with the announcement that a replacement is incoming. The new Aussie-built muscle car – the VXR8...

    Vauxhall announce Corsa VXR

    By 4 January 2007

    Vauxhall Astra Twin Top 1.6 16v Sport review

    By 7 October 2006

    Peugeot did it first, and now everyone seems to be having a crack. No, we're not talking about building cars that fall apart in a brisk wind, but the current fascination with churning out hard-roof drop-tops – or coupe-cabriolets as they are known –...
