Top up or down, the new Vauxhall Tigra looks good from any angle, and there is now an extensive range of custom-made accessories available to help buyers get the maximum enjoyment from this sporty two-seater.
Many of these accessories are designed to maximise the flexibility of the Tigra Twin Top’s design and add an extra dimension to the new owner’s individuality. All have been made to measure to ensure a perfect fit and quality to match the eye catching coupé/convertible.
The Boot Space Collection is a must for holidays and weekends away. Made in high quality charcoal-coloured fabric, this set of designer luggage stylishly features the Tigra logo on a satin aluminium tag.
Five pieces make up the set, including two multifunctional bags, a business bag and sports bag, and there is a trolley bag with extendable handle to allow the business bag to also be easily moved from car to hotel or airport.
With this set of luggage, owners can maximise the boot space available with the top up, while three of the five bags can still be fitted into the boot even with the top down. All the items are available individually with prices starting at £24.
The accessory design team has also created a portable leather compartment case (see picture) to fit into the additional luggage space behind the seats. Finished in charcoal leather with silver stitching and a metal handle with embossed Tigra logo, this case has two removable bags inside, a removable divider, inner net compartment and shoulder strap. It costs £78.
Alternatively an elastic net can be clipped into place across the front edge of the load area behind the front seat space to prevent loose items from sliding out of this area. This is priced at £34, and there is also a net available at £23 to secure maps and handbags to the passenger seat.
Many cabriolet owners really appreciate that a wind deflector can be a real boon on those dry but not so hot days with the top down. The Tigra Wind Blocker prevents the occupants from being buffeted by the wind and keeps drafts and wind noise to a minimum without obstructing rear vision. It costs £141.
Other practical accessories available from Vauxhall Retailers for the new model include a cargo liner to protect the boot and rear bumper when loading luggage, reverse parking sensors, co-driver storage box, tailored carpet mats, centre armrest with storage box and a range of hands-free phone kits.
To add extra dash to this exciting new two-seat design, a full range of exterior styling accessories will shortly be available, including front spoiler, rear lower spoiler, side sills and boot lid spoiler, plus a choice of different alloy wheel styles.Published 2 October 2004
