Home  \  European Imports  \  Vauxhall Vectra Replacement

Vauxhall are to build a completely new car to replace the Vectra which will also cover the Executive market!
this is what the old ones looked like....

Vectra B (http://www.drive.ru/images/opel/opel-vectra-b.jpg)
Vectra C (http://www.edmunds.com/media/2002/geneva/03.opel.vectra.f34.500.jpg)
Vectra D (http://www.carpages.co.uk/vauxhall/vauxhall_images/vauxhall_vectra_15_06_0 5.jpg)
but the new one looks completely different, and has a different name, the Vauxhall Insignia (vauxhall said the Vectra had too much related to it)

this has all the usual engine options but for the first time in ages for a vauxhall saloon, it will feature a 5.7litre GM V8, the same one that powered the Vauxhall/Holden Monaro/Pontiac GTO!!!

I'm not keen on the look of the Vectra's replacement....Maybe it'll grow on me?

thats exactly like mine but in dark red!
i was using those pics as a basis, the pre facelift and facelifted models look identical anyway, apart from better headlights and redesigned bumpers and skirts, oh, and interior!
i do believe the insignia you see is a concept design but the production model will look close to it, but will be more like a saloon

I guess that's the english version of the saturn aura.

I just wondered, lol.....They're slightly more difficult to find in my experience! :thumbs:

find??? why, do you want one, advice? go to a taxi company!!!
if they ever sell cars, its more than likely a Vectra Saloon, because theyre roomier than the equivalent!!!
(i suppose you're not after one really???)
