Our recommendations

Which used Vauxhall VX220 sports should I buy?

We'd recommend either model, but if your budget can stretch to the Turbo, do so. It has the same delightfully balanced chassis and handling as the 2.2-litre model, but considerably more power (197bhp v 145bhp), so it's that bit quicker.

That said, the 2.2-litre model is not far behind the Turbo - it still makes a brilliant choice, and it's easier to live with than its contemporary Lotus rival, the Elise.
