The first Vectra is a competent family and fleet car, although it had a lukewarm reception when it was launched 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, generous equipment and competitive running costs.
