Vauxhall Vectra LS
The Vauxhall Vectra LS is a mid range model of this popular and long running motor that looks good, drives well and is decently kitted out. It’s a good all rounder for people who want something that’s value for money and just works, and it really does everything it says on the box. Featuring good safety and reliability scores, it’s practical enough for family use but also has a certain business like quality that means executives could enjoy it too. Excellent value for money, it’s got 1.8 and 2.2 litre petrol engines, as well as 1.9 and 2.0 litre diesels.
Definitely sharp and funky in design, the Vauxhall Vectra LS looks quite modern, but isn’t as ‘shouty’ as some of its competitors. Inside the cabin, things are nice and comfortable, well finished and decently roomy, with 500 litres of boot space at the back that keeps things practical on a daily basis. Equipment wise, you’ll find everything from air conditioning to steel wheels, airbags to electric windows, a CD stereo, media connections, cloth seats, cruise control, service indicator and even driver assists. It’s easy to drive and behaves itself out on the road; motorway miles are eaten up quickly too. You’ll pay £2,000 used.
