Triple test: Veloster vs Astra GTC vs Scirocco
The claws are out, as we unleash three design-led, economical coupes in a catwalk dogfight…

Christmas dinner, all the trimmings, but instead of a plump turkey there's a mangy starling. Without the centrepiece, the whole thing falls on its backside. That's life in the Scirocco with this feeble engine. It actually has the most precise steering of the group, the most interactive cornering, the best feel from the tyres in a corner, the sharpest reactions to everything you do with it. The best brakes, the most mechanical and precise gearbox. All wasted for the want of some horsepower to play with them.
