Classic comparison. I've watched it a couple of times before (and I've driven all those cars but in "civil" version ;) )

Nice review, but it just makes me want the 2.0 Turbo version that much more.

Great host! Too bad there weren't car show hosts on this side of the pond with that kind of personality!

My sentiments exactly! He has a great personality and seemed very objective even though it hurt a little to hear about the Astra's shortcomings concerning torque steering. None the less this is a great car!

Ah, Jeremy Clarkson, the guy is hilarious when he needs to be, but he seems to have something against American vehicles too. No bother really, I remember him loving both the Ford GT and Corvette ZR1. As you said though, we need more reviewers like him, factual where needed, entertaining otherwise.

He probably just rags on US cars to keep his 'cred' among the UK crowd.

I lived in England for 3 years. Great time and great people. Some quite opinionated when it comes to cars. American cars are the worst in their eyes, and after owning and driving some European cars in THEIR conditions on THEIR roads, I tend to agree with them on that point. Now to have an Astra with little American Content added to dilute it from the original, I could not be more happy.

I too hate the SVT Lightning with passion. It's so pointless. You can't use it for work because it's not four wheel drive and completely uneconomical, and you can't drive spiritedly in it either because it's got no handling capabilities at all. Such rubbish. Fortunately F150's are extremely rare.
