Welcome to the Connected issue of V magazine. Come with us behind the scenes at Vauxhall’s OnStar Service Centre, to meet the team who are helping an increasing number of new Vauxhall drivers to stay connected. Then join us for a journey with New Astra in a run from London’s iconic BT Tower via Jodrell Bank to the Kielder Observatory, places that keep us in touch with a galaxy far, far away. It’s hi-tech connections of a different kind in our Corsa Limited Edition road trip, as we join the trend of geocaching, a treasure hunt with a 21st-century twist. We then jump aboard ADAM ROCKS UNLIMITED to visit some of the lighthouses that connect land to sea and stand guard on our coastline. Elsewhere, we learn the secrets to success that connect entrepreneurs from Peter Jones, and examine the theory of six degrees of separation.
