Vauxhall Vectra Estate rivals

Written by Parkers on

The Vectra is a competent family and fleet car, although it had a lukewarm reception 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, a good driving position, generous equipment and competitive running costs. Prices are weakening now there’s a new range out.
