Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 23 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

3.2 V6 is thirsty, but smaller units are okay. Depreciation is steep so don’t pay big money for one even if it is a top of the range model. Vauxhall servicing is cheap enough and insurance is better than premium executives.

Mechanical reliability tends to be good, but minor niggles seem to trouble some owners – fortunately no matter where you live there should be a Vauxhall dealer near by to help out.
