PostHeaderIcon Santa’s Exotic and Luxurious Sleighs

Nobody really knows how often Santa upgrades his sleigh, but what if he wanted to shop for a new model altogether? Well, over the past five or six years, publications like Car Magazine have challenged automakers to design a new sleigh for Santa. Automakers like Bentley, Land Rover, and even Vauxhall have designed new sleighs for Santa in the past, so needless to say, Santa has had a lot to choose from.

I don’t recall seeing any designs last year, and have only seen one this year. But, when you consider the long list of available sleighs at his disposal, there are still at least a few on standby, just waiting to be plucked from some secret, magical garage that is undoubtedly located somewhere at the North Pole.

Since we haven’t seen too many fresh designs for the 2015, I decided to revisit a few of the sleighs created in the years past. Most of the sleighs are exotic, or out of this world – and one even looks like a fighter jet – but why wouldn’t Santa take advantage of all the latest technology? You may have seen one or two of the designs in the past, but it’s always fun to revisit things like this during the holidays. Which of the following sleighs do you think Santa is going to use this year?

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Plans to Capitalize on the VXR Badge in the Future

Vauxhall’s performance sub-brand, VXR, may eventually come out of solitude in the future. Although the company has been focusing on the GSi badge lately, the VXR hasn’t been killed off. Now that almost all automakers are making performance-oriented electric cars, Vauxhall could go ahead and slap its cars with the VXR badge.

Whether you call it the Vauxhall Corsa GSi or the Opel Corsa GSi, one thing is for certain – the Corsa GSi is one zippy concoction made to make a lot of bang for not a lot of buck. Available in mainland Europe as Opel and in the U.K. as the Vauxhall, the Corsa GSi packs a tiny, 1.4-liter turbocharged, engine, enough power to surge to 62 mph in less than 9 seconds and, with a proper amount of sporty features honed by the OPC, enough character to make you happy.

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall GT X Experimental

The Vauxhall GT X Experimental is a concept car that previews the company’s next-generation design language. The same cues will be used by sister company Opel in the 2020s.

It’s been a while since the British company that produces rebadged Opel and Chevrolet models made headlines. Barely known outside the United Kingdom, Vauxhall usually only made the news when it rolled out performance-rated models equipped with the “VXR” badge. Come 2018, and the Brits came into the spotlight with an original concept car. It’s called the GT X Experimental, and it’s a tiny, four-meter-long EV that combined styling characteristics of compact SUVs, hatchbacks, and coupes. It’s also the brand’s first semi-autonomous vehicle.

PostHeaderIcon Opel GT X Experimental Concept Unveiled

The groundbreaking new concept Opel/Vauxhall had promised us a while back is now ready to show itself in public. It’s called the Opel GT X Experimental Concept, and it’s an electric coupe/SUV thing in the same vein as the Jaguar I-Pace. 

Opel’s proposition for an all-electric all-rounder for the future has five doors, a jacked-up ride height, and fairly compact size, plus a rather interesting design. The interesting thing about the GT X Experimental Concept is that it’s promoted by both Vauxhall and Opel, the former making a big deal about the Britishness of the car’s essence, while the latter seems excessively proud of its Germanness. They even use words like “Blitz” in describing, you have admit, have kind of a negative connotation!

In any case, the GT X Experimental Concept is the face, and substance, of cars to be launched by both companies from mid-2020s. So those narrow lights on the front and back, the straight lines on the front and sweeping ones on the side and back, the simplified dashboard and that signature front grille, they are the styling cues of Opels of the future. For now Opel remains tight-lipped about the technical specifications of the GT X.








“The Opel GT X Experimental embodies the spirit of our core brand values – German, approachable, exciting. It’s an “approachable” concept that people can identify with. It confidently combines a pure and bold design execution with progressive technology that makes life easier. Clearly, this vehicle signals a very exciting future for the brand,” said Mark Adams.

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Brand Concept Previews 2020s Design Langauge

Vauxhall is in the process of redefining the brand with something they call the PACE! strategy, and part of that is introducing a new design language. They are now preparing to give u a glimpse of the new look, which is in the slow cooker for mid-2020s release, through a Vauxhall Brand Concept set for debut before the end of the year. 

The teaser image they have released of this intriguing Vauxhall Brand Concept does not really betray much apart from the shape of the car’s LED daytimers. But according to Vauxhall this “template for future production cars” boasts many cues from the 2016 GT Concept in “simple surfaces, strong proportions, bold graphics and seamless integration of glass and body.” There is also a compass theme going on here, invented by the company’s VP of design,which is apparently about the lines that emanate from the prominent Griffin emblem on the front grille. Looking forward to what is that all about.

‘Design will be at the heart of everything that we do in future,’ said Mark Adams, Vauxhall’s Vice President Design. ‘It will truly differentiate the Vauxhall brand, and make it sharper and more relevant to our core values. We are a proud British brand and design inspiration is all around us in the UK – from the bold ingenuity of James Dyson to the pure designs of Jonathan Ive – and this concept will embody that.’

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Corsa GSi Pricing Revealed, Starts from £18,995

Opel/Vauxhall intrigued us when they announced they are reviving the Corsa GSi pocket rocket this year, but is now losing us as they reveal how much this thing is going to cost. The GSi is now available to order in the UK with a Vauxhall badge, priced from £18,995.

So they’ve priced this tiny little thing like a family saloon, and they still expect you to pay an extra £1,900 for the GSi Plus Pack. Then again, hotted-up Opels and Vauxhalls have never been cheap. And the Corsa GSi does have some juicy specs, one has to admit. But even so, it takes a real die-hard fan to play that kind of money for a Corsa, however hot it might be, or however cool its badge may look in automotive circles.

The 150 PS, 220 Nm 1.4-litre turbo Vauxhall Corsa GSi, which is built on the VXR (OPC) chassis, is quick but not astonishingly so. It sprints form 0 to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds and taps out at 129 mph. The hot sueprmini comes with a short-ratio six-speed gearbox and a long list of features, including: 17-inch bi-colour cut alloy wheels, GSi rear roof spoiler, sports front grille, GSi air dam/bumper and side sills. The GSi also gets dark tinted rear windows, carbon effect exterior mirrors and grille bar, and LED daytime running lights. Inside, sports-style front seats, a leather-covered flat-bottom steering wheel and Navi R4.0 IntelliLink infotainment, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

As for that expensive GSi Plus pack, it adds 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, Recaro leather seats and bi-xenon headlights with cornering light. You judge if its really worth the asking price.

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Executes Zafira and Astra

The Crossover fever has spread all across the world, and it’s not just the sedans that are facing the brunt. According to Autocar, the Zafira Tourer and Astra GTC are the latest cars to get phased out. Although they are being discontinued in the U.K for now, we are sure it will be eliminated completely very soon.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Vauxhall Combo Life – Pricing and Specs

Even though the minivan market has been largely squashed by the SUV and the crossover, Opel/Vauxhall think there is still some life left in this niche. So they have come up with a new Combo Life which is a practical minivan aimed at large families. It goes on sale in September with a base price of twenty and half grand. 

2019 Vauxhall Combo Life is available in the UK with five or seven seats, and comes in two trim levels of Design and Energy. The base £20,530 Design model comes with air conditioning, DAB Radio with USB and Bluetooth audio streaming and 16-inch steel wheels with styled wheel covers. The £21,970 Energy (seven-seater £22,530) trim boasts eight-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system, 16-inch alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors.They both have a 110 PS 1.2 liter turbo engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox, plus start/stop.

Playing around with the options list, for those who want to spend more, can fix the 2019 Combo Life with such items like 1.5 liter diesel engine, a low-friction 8-speed automatic, Head-up display, Front camera system, Forward collision alert, Automatic Cruise Control with Intelligent Speed Adaptation, Driver Drowsiness Alert, Advanced Park Assist and the Panoramic Rear-View Camera, Flan Guard sensors, and  Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment systems.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi Specs and Details Revealed

A while ago Opel/Vauxhall announced the launch of a semi-hot new Corsa named after the original hot Corsa, the Corsa GSi. Now they have revealed the first technical details of the car, and we have to say it has some juicy specs. On paper at lest, we reckon this is a nicer proposition than the over-powered Corsa VXR/OPC. 

Whereas the VXR model gets 210 horsepower, which makes the Corsa like a cat on crystal meth, the Corsa GSi has a more modest 150 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque. That is easier to handle and provides pretty satisfactory performance. Acceleration from 0-62 mph takes just 8.9 seconds, and the top speed is 128 mph. It will be plenty of fun extracting that performance out of the 1.4 liter turbo engine through the short-ratio six-speed gearbox.

Having fun in this car does not come at the cost of economy, as it still manages to return 47.1mpg combined, with CO2 emissions from 139g/km. But technical goodness aside, the Corsa GSi could become a hit on account of its looks alone. The supermini features large air intaeks, a sculptured bonnet and prominent rear spoiler as its main features. There are other sporty touches, such as 18 inch wheels, chrome tailpipe and red-painted front brake calipers.




Set to hit the showrooms in September 2018, the new Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi can be specified inside the cabin with leather Recaro seats, leather steering wheel, aluminium pedals, and IntelliLink infotainment system, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

PostHeaderIcon New 1.5L Diesel Engine for Vauxhall Grandland X

Customer now have the option of ordering their Vauxhall Grandland X with a new 1.5 liter turbo-diesel engine. I know what you’re thinking. Diesel, 1.5 liter, sounds awful. But this unit is a clever one and rivals 2.0 liter motors in terms of power while delivering much better economy. 

To give you some facts and figures, the all-new Euro 6.2-compliant 1.5-litre Turbo D engine for the Vauxhall Grandland X packs 130 horsepower, which is a decent figure for a crossover this size. When paired with the new eight-speed automatic transmission which features an optimised torque converter to improve gear shift smoothness, the unit return an average fuel consumption of 68.9mpg corresponding to CO2 emissions from 108g/km. Those are hard figures to beat unless you go a couple of levels down an bring superminis into the game.

What’s more, Vauxhall claims that on freeway this engine can go as high as 74.3 mpg, which is awesome. Available to order now, the Vauxhall Grandland X SE equipped with the new diesel engine starts at £24,190 on-the-road.

“The high-tech design of the new 1.5-litre diesel in the Vauxhall Grandland X enables customers to combine the fun of a compact SUV with the powerful performance and low emissions of an advanced diesel engine,” said Ian Mitchell, Vauxhall’s Grandland X Brand Manager.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Corsa GSi Officially Announced

Good news for the fans of fast, tiny city cars. Opel/Vauxhall announced the launch of a new Corsa GSi later this year, introducing a dose of sportiness to the supermini’s small and efficient package. The 2019 Corsa GSi will come only as a three-door. 

That’s a shame because having only three doors does rob the hatchback of some of its inherent practicality. On the up side, the Corsa GSi looks fantastic. The GSi treatment, like Opel’s OPC and Vauxhall VXR, gives the car an aggressive look and sporty attitude. There is a vented hood at the front, along with revised bumpers with large, chrome-accented air intakes.


There is also red brake calipers, 18-inch light alloy wheels, and sport chassis. And it’s all topped off by a rear spoiler and chrome tailpipe. The main highlights of the interior include Recaro leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and  aluminium pedals. The Corsa GSi is also well-equipped, boasting stuff like IntelliLink infotainment system, offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Though technical specs have not yet been released, the GSi will probably get something like 200 horsepower from a turbo four-pot.


While Corsa GSi might be a novel new thing for Opel customers in Europe, Vauxhall fans are familiar with it from original GSi launched in the UK 25 years ago. That car had a 1.6 liter 105 bhp engnie and a manual gearbox.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Opel/Vauxhall Combo Life Is a Leisure Activity Vehicle

LAV or leisure activity vehicle is the name Opel/Vauxhall have given to their latest family minivan, the 2019 Combo Life. The lofty title does reflect the character of the car to some extent,seeing as it is designed as versatile and practical vehicle with the needs of an active lifestyle in mind. 

That said, the term “active lifestyle” is too cool to describe a car like the Combo Life. This is what you get when you are done being young and dynamic, want to have family fun with the kids and maybe the in-laws. That is why the Combo can be ordered with five or seven and has ample space for luggage and boasts sliding rear doors so you can roll grandma in with ease. Other family-oriented features include three individual rear seats, all with ISOFIX child seat brackets, optional panoramic glass roof, and top of the line safety features.

Among the main safety highlights of the Opel/Vaushall Combo Life we have the Driver Drowsiness Alert, Rear View Camera with 180° bird’s-eye view, Head-up display, and IntelliGrip, Forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Cruise Control, and Intelligent Speed Adaptation. The Combo comes in two 4.4-meter standard length version or a longer 4.75-meter long model, the former with maximum luggage capacity of 2,126 liters and the latter with 2,693 liters. Engine-wise, you can choose between turbo-charged, direct injection petrol and diesel engines, with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Vauxhall Grandland X Priced from £22,310

The orders book are now open for the 2018 Vauxhall Grandland X SUV and you can have yours from £22,310. That sounds like good value, even if just for the fact that the Grandland is a sizable thing – 20 centimetres longr than Mokka X and Crossland X. It is also pretty well-equipped and fairly capable when the going gets rough. 

The list of standard kit on the 2018 Vauxhall Grandland X include such items as LED daytime running lights, camera-based lane departure warning, road sign recognition, intelligent cruise control, and air conditioning with particulate and odour filter. It also comes with standard OnStar and optional IntelliGrip traction control system which ensures optimum road grip in diverse driving situations through torque distribution. The driving modes this system offers include normal, mud, snow, sand, and ESP off.

As for the engines, launches with a 1.2-litre turbo petrol with 130PS (urban 44.1-47.1mpg, extra-urban 57.6-62.8mpg, combined 51.4mpg-55.4mpg, 127-117 g/km CO2) and a 1.6-litre turbo diesel with 120PS (urban 55.4-60.1mpg, extra-urban 67.3-80.7mpg, combined 61.4-70.6mpg, 118-104 g/km CO2). Both turbo units can be combined with either the six-speed manual or a friction-optimised six-speed automatic transmission and come with Start/Stop as standard. So the Grandland has frugality on its side, too.








“Our goals for the Grandland X were to create a rugged yet dynamic design, while also managing to balance style and functionality,” said Brit Mark Adams, Vauxhall/Opel’s Vice President, Design. “We also aimed for an elegant, upmarket feel with carefully crafted surfaces and interfaces, plus the consistent use of high quality materials throughout.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer – Pricing and Specs

Set to be released nation-wide in the UK in November, the 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is a family estate with above average off-road capabilities. That makes this fairly unique looking thing a good alternative to the obvious crossovers and SUVs out there, especially when you consider the space and features it offers. 

Priced from £25,635, Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is not just a jacked-up wagon with pretend off-road credentials. The high ground clearance is backed up by all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, and it has skid plates and moulded black protective cladding in the lower fascia, wheel arches and along the lower body side. In short then, the Country Tourer can indeed cash the checks its appearance writes.

In terms of features and practicality, making 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer an idea family car, you can have keyless open and start with hand-free tailgate opening, 1,665 litres of cargo space, optional 40/20/40 foldable rear seats, and standard roof rails that can carry up to 100 kg of stuff. The new Insignia Country Tourer comes with AGR-certified premium ergonomic front seats and the heated outer rear seats, heated windscreen and the heated steering wheel.














Engine-wise the new Country Tourer can be had with a 2.0-litre Turbo D (170PS) (NEDC fuel consumption: urban 39.8mpg, extra-urban 61.4mpg, combined 51.4mpg; 145g/km CO2). Completing the powertrain line-up, a 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo D with 210PS will arrive in December. These are mated to an 8-speed transmission.

Opel-Insignia_Sports_Tourer-2018-1

In recent years the station wagon body style, or estate, or tourer, or whatever it’s called in your neck of the woods has been getting increasingly more popular. That has to do mostly with the fact that wagons suddenly became beautiful. On that basis, Opel Insignia Sports Tourer should be alright since it looks really rather good.

The new wagon Insignia is pretty and it is different and classy. If you can get past the badge, especially in the UK where this car is sold as a Vauxhall, the 2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer really is a great choice. And we’re not basing that just on the looks. The new model is also good at being a wagon, what with a 1,640 liters – over 100 liters more than the outgoing model – boot and such technology features as Opel IntelliLux LED matrix headlights, driver aids, head-up display, OnStar connectivity, an eight-speed automatic transmission, a 360° camera and intelligent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring.

2018 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer comes, as before, with a broad range of petrol and diesel engines in Europe. Just make sure whichever engine you get it comes with all-wheel-drive featuring two electrically controlled multi-plate clutches. Also make sure you get FlexRide, which adapts the dampers, steering, throttle response and shift points (on automatics) independently or based on the modes ‘Standard’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Tour’, which can be selected by the driver. The new central ‘Drive Mode Control’ software is the heart and soul of the adaptive chassis. It continuously analyzes the information provided by the sensors and settings and recognizes the individual driving style.

Following the launch of the new-look Insignia sedan, Vauxhall has now released the first images of the Tourer (wagon) version ahead of the car’s official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer has big shoes to fill because its predecessor was named the 2009 European car of the year.

As you would expect from a new car, the new Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is thoroughly enhanced in every aspect. Besides the new and more serious design, the car uses a new architecture which results in a 100 liter more luggage capacity than the outgoing model at 1,640 liters with the seats folded. What’s more, the new model is 200kg lighter than the old one, even though it is packed with features such as all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring and the new eight-speed automatic transmission.

Speaking of high-tech features, Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer also comes with IntelliLux LED matrix lighting, Lane Keep Assist, Head-up Display and unique AGR-certified premium seats, front- and rear-seat heating and a heated windscreen. You get also Keyless Entry and active boot opening mechanism, optional panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel and seats for all the occupants, optional 18-way adjustable heated driver’s seat with massage and ventilation functions, latest smartphone integration systems, and a new Personal Assistant service with OnStar.

While details of the available powertrains are yet to be confirmed, we know the new Insignia Tourer does come with FlexRide suspension and a host of electronic aids such as Head-up-Display, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keep Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Following the launch of the new-look Insignia sedan, Vauxhall has now released the first images of the Tourer (wagon) version ahead of the car’s official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The 2018 Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer has big shoes to fill because its predecessor was named the 2009 European car of the year.

As you would expect from a new car, the new Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is thoroughly enhanced in every aspect. Besides the new and more serious design, the car uses a new architecture which results in a 100 liter more luggage capacity than the outgoing model at 1,640 liters with the seats folded. What’s more, the new model is 200kg lighter than the old one, even though it is packed with features such as all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring and the new eight-speed automatic transmission.

Speaking of high-tech features, Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer also comes with IntelliLux LED matrix lighting, Lane Keep Assist, Head-up Display and unique AGR-certified premium seats, front- and rear-seat heating and a heated windscreen. You get also Keyless Entry and active boot opening mechanism, optional panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel and seats for all the occupants, optional 18-way adjustable heated driver’s seat with massage and ventilation functions, latest smartphone integration systems, and a new Personal Assistant service with OnStar.

While details of the available powertrains are yet to be confirmed, we know the new Insignia Tourer does come with FlexRide suspension and a host of electronic aids such as Head-up-Display, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keep Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
