The GTC’s pricing sees it meet the entry Scirocco head-on. Early cars were significantly cheaper, but since the range was stripped back, you now get a better-specced car for the same money as a Volkswagen.
In its most frugal 108bhp 1.7 CDTi form, the GTC emits 111g/km and offers an official combined economy figure of 67.3mpg.
Mainly thanks to its Vauxhall badge, deprecation on the GTC is tipped to be fairly sharp. The GTC 1.6T SRi is estimated to be worth just over £6000 in four years' time; the equivalent VW Scirocco 1.4 TSI 160 is likely to be worth just over £9000 after the same period.
