Written by Parkers on

This Vectra is larger and more accomplished than the model it replaced. It's also very well equipped and even provides the driver with a measure of satisfaction. But this all-purpose Eurohatch still lacks the character to cut it with the prestige brands and looks set to challenge Primera, Laguna and C5 rather than Passat or Mondeo. Residual values are likely to weaken over the next few years, as more come onto the market.
