8.5s 0-62, same in Normal or Sport mode...

The "pricesandspecguide" downloaded from Vauxhall website says 0-60 in 8.7 secs and elsewhere on their website it says 0-30 in 3.1 secs.

I think the theory is that Sport Mode doesn't make any difference - it just feels like it does!?

that's only half of the story.. no gear changes means it'll out perform an ICE with a slight 0-60 advantage.
And the torque is great at all speeds, its superb at providing a burst of speed for overtaking.. not sure if there are any times about for 30-60 or 50-70, but it's pretty nippy.

Sport mode adjusts the pedal response, it becomes more lively, full power at less pedal (you don't need to floor it)

That is correct... you get the same full power when you floor the pedal regardless of mode. Max power is still max power.

So basically in Sport mode the pedal is just more responsive and in Normal mode the pedal is quite calm unless you really floor it?
