Written by Ben Wall on

There's more to the load-carrying version of the Vectra than just a differently-shaped tail end. It has a longer wheelbase than the saloon and hatchback versions and a significantly longer overall length, helping to make it the most capacious car in its class. This builds upon the Vectra's existing virtues of impressive motorway manners, solid build and extensive choice of decent engines to make a reasonably compelling case.

Prices are very competitive to begin with, and Vauxhall's range of offers along with the dealers doubtless willingness to negotiate should mean an even better deal in the showroom.
