A wide range of models and engines will be available when it goes on sale at the end of November from the entry-level 1.8 16v LS to the range topping 3.2 litre V6 Elite. Vauxhall’s new 3.0 V6 CDTi common rail diesel features on two models, while other recently introduced engines, the 2.2 16v Direct and 2.0 Turbo petrol units, are both also available in the Estate.

Because the Vectra Estate shares its wheelbase dimensions with the Vauxhall Signum, interior space for passengers is generous.

Modifications have been made to the chassis of the Estate to compensate for its extra length and wheelbase over the hatchback.

The Estate is expected to account for around 15% of all Vectras sold and will be built at one of the most advanced car plants in Europe at Russelsheim, Germany

Clever - interior space and FlexOrganiser

In the new Vectra Estate, Vauxhall has deliberately designed a car which is as much about practicality and versatility as it is about "lifestyle".

The interior space is a key strength. A 2.83 metre wheelbase contributes to generous amounts of space for driver and passengers as well as a now class-leading area for luggage – between 530 and 1850 cubic litres.
