Vauxhall Omega Estate (94-03) - Review

Review by Parkers on

The estate makes a stronger case for itself than the saloon by being rather more desirable on the used market; you get a lot of good car for your money and it makes a great tow car. Omega offers assured handling, good power units and spacious, comfortable interiors.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The estate makes a stronger case for itself than the saloon by being rather more desirable on the used market; you get a lot of good car for your money and it makes a great tow car. Omega offers assured handling, good power units and spacious, comfortable interiors. Engines are the efficient Ecotec units. A better proposition than elderly executives like Scorpio and Rover 800; in fact it's close to being an affordable alternative to the old BMW 5-Series. If you need more proof of its credibility as a driving machine, the traffic police loved Omega.

What owners say...

 Huge load area, still drives brilliantly but you can take everything you own with you if you need too!

 HUGE interior, huge exterior come to think of it, 5 people and a big dog and no-one is short of space.
