New Vectra Estate - The FlexOrganiser | Part Two

FlexOrganiser: load area compartments for variable storage

The new Vectra Estate has 530 litres of luggage space up to the load cover in the five-seater configuration, and a maximum of 1850 litres. To make the best use of the space, Vauxhall’s engineers have designed FlexOrganiser, a system of compartments which permit a range of loading configurations.

FlexOrganiser uses two parallel rails that run along each of the side-walls in the load area, up to the back of the rear seats. A variable system of dividers, poles, hooks and latches can be attached to the rails to create different sized compartments, depending on the need.

The customer has the choice of two packages: an "Organiser Package" for everyday use or the Travel Package for weekend and holiday trips. When not required, the separate components are stored out of sight under a cover in the load area.

Remote control tailgate: opening and closing at the push of a button

From January, the Vectra Estate can be ordered with a remote control tailgate. A push of a button on the key fob activates the tailgate via electric drive; it can be stopped at any position. The driver can also use a switch inside the cabin.

To avoid accidents, a motion sensor is fitted and to make loading and unloading of bigger or bulky objects easier, the tailgate opens to a very wide angle. Maximum standing height under the open tailgate is a generous 1.9 metres.

Other practical standard features of the load area include a 12 volt power outlet and two side pockets for small objects.
