Launched in June 2003 the Vauxhall Signum was marketed as 'a new breed of premium car that satisfies the differing demands of work, family and leisure in one unique, spacious package'.
Based on a stretched Vectra platform, the Signum is positioned as a new and individual brand that combines the best attributes from more conventional body-styles such as the load carrying ability of an estate, the flexibility of an MPV and the refinement and comfort of an executive saloon.
Available in four trim levels: Elegance, Design, Elite and Exclusiv and a choice of three petrol engines (1.8i 16v, 2.0i 16v Turbo & 2.2i 16v Direct) and three diesel engines (1.9CDTi [120PS], 1.9CDTi 16v [150PS] & 2.0DTi 16v).
We tested the 2.2 Design to find out if the Signum has what it takes to compete with established premium brands such as Audi, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Saab and Volvo.
