Vauxhall / Opel Vectra

Opel Vectra

Offered in both hatch and sedan variants - along with a handsome estate - the primary fleet contender has considerable road presence, thanks in part to its stacked headlamp design.

Chassis dynamics are great to a point - the vehicle starts to feel just a little vague when pushed via a series of bends, and steering is less precise than it may be - but the car really makes its own when cruising across the highway.

A great variety of engines from a cost-effective 1.8 petrol to some hugely competent 3.0 V6 turbo diesel, and also the availability of six speed manual transmission on some models, helps Vectra sales endure nicely when confronted with stiff competition. Quality of ride is high, and interior noise levels are nicely controlled, both which aid the model's comfort levels - an important aspect of success within the fleet market.
