The Vauxhall Vectra Life is positioned directly in the middle of trims, and offers a sensible and reliable approach to motoring. Popular with families and executives, it’s modern, well equipped, decently designed and practical enough for everyday use. While previous versions were accused of being somewhat bland and boring, this one certainly steps up to the plate and seems to do everything right. You’ll also notice high safety and reliability scores as well. Under the bonnet, engines range from 1.8 litre petrols to 1.9 litre diesels, so both punch and fuel economy aren’t an issue.Indeed the Vauxhall Vectra Life is a good looking car from the outside, with sharp bodywork angles and quite a sleek profile. It’s positive on the inside too where the cabin is spacious, decently finished, robust and practical enough for everyday use, especially with 500 litres of boot space. Some of the featured kit includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, electric windows, airbags, alarm, CD stereo, media connections, driver assists, cruise control, spare wheel, front fog lights and even more. It’s refined and straightforward to handle out on the tarmac, and can take to any type of road with ease. You’ll pay around £6,000 used for one.
