I'm feeling the same way. Really want to like the new Cupra but so unsure of the looks. I am going to have a test drive next week on recommendations of the guys on here. It's a lot of money to part with for something i may not be a 100% sure about. Trouble is i was visiting a mate at a Vauxhall dealership and had a really good look at the VXR astra, hate to say it, in my opinion, much better looking. May have to take a test drive. Now i feel dirty and it wont wash off!!
