About the Vectra

Enjoying a twenty-year run, the Opel Vectra (Vauxhall Vectra in the UK), was a mid-sized car designed primarily for family living.

A number of variations were produced, namely a saloon, hatchback and an estate. Instead of following the more traditional practice of keeping the same model name whilst progressing through the generations, Opel renamed each newer model A, B and C.

The Vectra A was built as a direct replacement for the Opel Ascona, several trim levels were introduced, Base, LS, GL, GLS, CD and GT. With the option to add four-wheel drive on some variants, there were a number of powertrains available. At the time, Opel had several other saloons and hatchbacks on the market, namely the Omega A, Opel Astra, Calibra and the Corsa.

The Vectra B began production in 1995 (7 years after its predecessor debuted) and was the very last Vectra to buIlt in the Luton plant. This particular model was adapted for touring and car racing.

Built upon the GM Epsilon Platform, the new Vectra C 4-door notchback saloon and 5-door hatchback began sales in 2002. A year later the longer wheel-based estate car was added to make up the range and featured a modified engine to counterbalance its heavier weight.

Unfortunately, after a successful run of the Vectra in the UK, the third vehicle and newest generation did not fair nearly as well. For most of its life, the Vectra had been Britain’s 4th best-selling car in the country; this accolade took a sharp dive for the third generation and remained firmly off the ‘top ten list.’ Finally however, the Vauxhall Vectra outsold the Ford Mondeo in 2007 for the first time since 1999. Following this achievement, What Car magazine named the Vectra estate the estate car of the year.
