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 A
Vectra B
Vectra C
Vectra D
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)
Vauxhall Insignia
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!!!
More here!

You forgot the pre-facelift Vectra B



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

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???)
