Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

Omega offers assured handling, good power units and spacious, comfortable interiors. Engines are the efficient Ecotec units. A better proposition than elderly executives like Scorpio and Rover 800 and it's almost an affordable alternative to the old BMW 5-Series. It's just a pity that it's not visually more attractive. However, if you're looking for a great car and you don't care what anyone else thinks then this could be just what you're looking for.

No-one will dislike your car, they simply won't notice it. If you need more proof of its credibility as a driving machine, traffic police loved Omega.

What owners say...

 It feels very German - solid like a tank and reliable. Everything works as it should. The boot can take a lot of luggage too.

 Size is good with plenty of room in the boot for a saloon.
