This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Vauxhall Vectra Saloon (05-08) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The steering wheel is now adjustable - the one the previous Vectra was fixed. This allows most sizes to get a comfy driving position. The one-touch indicator is an annoying characteristic, although you do get used to it. All models have cruise control, which is on the end of the indicator stalk and all to easy to accidentally activate. Most controls easy to use, but some buttons can be fiddly and don't have a the same quality feel about them as you get in a Mondeo or Passat.

This is an all-new modern family car, with good leg and shoulder room all round. Headroom can be a bit tight in the back, but it's exceptionally quiet on the motorway. Seats could be better - the padding can feel a bit thin. Interior ambience isn't as plush as Mondeo and lacks a sense of occasion.
