The Vauxhall is a none starter maybe ok for duel carriageway and good a road bandits, but the car is to unstable at speed and the twisty bits and it is really iffy on roads with sudden camber changes the torgue steer is horrendous.

The Focus is head and shoulders above the Vauxhall in my opinion having driven both for more than a short spin round the block .

The Merc .....maybe once I give up driving All the Merc has going for it is residuals which is not the best option on a fun car .

Alfa just to iffy build quality and reliability and Alfa workshops are the pits usually tagged on the side of a Fiat dealer. after owning several and having the use of one long term but yes some models look fantastic
