Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0


Refinement, economy, space, value.


Indifferent ride and handling.


The first Vectra is a competent family and fleet car, although it had a lukewarm reception when it was launched in 1995. It lacks the sparkle of the Mondeo, but its abilities shine through. Not a car to drive for the pleasure of it, but ahead of the pack in terms of space, comfort, generous equipment and competitive running costs.

It always works, rain snow or shine, always starts up and tries to get you on your way. Read owner review

Large boot, decent fuel economy (when driving sensibly), reliable and suprisingly cheap on insurance... Read owner review

it was massive and the boot space was a collosal size. Read owner review
