This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Vauxhall Vectra Estate (05-08) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Vectra's three-star Euro NCAP rating was good for its time, but is now below average. Later models get driver and passenger airbags and optional side airbags; ABS was standard from launch. Security is strong, with superb deadlocks linked to an effective immobiliser and remote central locking on top-spec models.

Easy-to-access large load area with split/fold seats. Capable of transporting large and awkwardly-shaped loads. Very few clever cubby holes inside (aside from the glovebox).
