    Great breakover angle. Would like to try one out off road at some point.

    And on the subject of "I want one".... a completely different vehicle, something I ordinarily wouldn't be interested in at all.

    Just got back from a month in the UK, hired a "compact" class, Ford Focus or similar it said on the booking.

    Got given a silver Vauxhall (Holden) Astra, I didn't pay any attention to the spec, just got in and drove off.

    What I gleefully discovered was that it was the SRi, so a top spec 1.6 turbo, 147kw, 6 speed manual. The sport button was a proper increase in boost and man did it fly, properly quick, Focus ST quick. Trick diff, clever traction control.

    Did 3200 miles, got 42mpg (5.6 L/100km) from point of hire to the day I returned it, inclusive of lots of rather "spirited" driving in Scotland in particular. But its not a hard, "performance" ride at all, very comfy on long motorway stints, was a pleasure to drive all day. Lots of clever things like lane assist as well.

    The car is a real sleeper, the only exterior hint that its pretty quick is a tiny SRi badge and twin tail pipes. So I didn't look like a wanabee twat, but I sure as hell surprised the fuckwit Beemer tailgaters in the Highlands when the road opened up. Thinking of overtaking me? Think again.

    So yeah, half the price of a Golf GTi and heaps of fun.

    Correction: I used the US MPG calculator by mistake. The 42mpg is 6.7 L/100km, not 5.6.
