Spacious, sporty family car
Nothing as of yet.
I bought this car after getting fed up of the reliability and comfort of my Vectra B, 2.2 DTi SRi, and it has been a real eye opener. This is massive improvement over the previous Vectra. I even like the controversial one touch indicators and wipers.
I went for the SRi variant for the sportier looks and handling, but this has compromised the ride quality a bit, but I was willing to sacrifice this for the looks.
The engine is the 1.8 VVT, the VVT gives an extra 20bhp over the normal 1.8, as well as better mpg.
For a 1.8, it does perform very well, especially with it being such a big car. It feels very lively, even low down the rev range.
Inside the car is nice and airy, but a sunroof would be nice.
The seats are very supporting and hugging, with them being the Recaro style ones.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
