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 25 - 48 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.

More complicated than Cavalier, though dealer servicing and parts reasonable; insurance competitive on sub-2.0 litre cars; fuel consumption decent on most. Depreciation is becoming less of an issue now this is a used car and Vectra is proving to be good value motoring.

OK on the whole; build quality is variable, affecting paint and trim; some mechanical and electrical/electronics problems; high-milers can show their wear; interiors not that durable.
