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.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

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.

What owners say...

 It always works, rain snow or shine, always starts up and tries to get you on your way.

 Large boot, decent fuel economy (when driving sensibly), reliable and suprisingly cheap on insurance for a young male driver.

 it was massive and the boot space was a collosal size.
