Good looks. Loads of kit. Very good load space. Satnav and onstar are fairly easy to use. Excellent performance with 200ps engine. 146mph 7.2 0-60. Handling not as good as astra J model GTC. No storage in centre console by gear lever. Over all a good car

Stylish design. The 1.4-litre turbo petrol is refined and has plenty of power when fully loaded. The media electronics work well and I enjoy finding all the many features offered. Red was too bright for me so I went for granite grey.

I found this car as one of my available choices of company car and thought, why not? I've had all sorts of mid range diesel powered cars previously so how about a decent quick petrol one? An estate to boot (pardon the pun). Three months in I will summarise it as follows: Handles beautifully. I point it in a direction and it goes where I tell it without complaining, even at times when I was sure I had overdcooked it. Fast, fun and sensible. In normal driving it is understated and smooth. A really comfy car to drive. Pop it in sports mode and it turns into a quick beast that makes you grin with childish glee. Spacious. It is very roomy. I had no problem getting a 9" piece of timber home entirely inside the car. With the rear seat folded it is cavernous. Controls. Good but not great. Some confusing features and less than brilliant sat-nav for picking destinations (though a million miles better than the sat-nav in a Hyundai). Features. Good but annoyingly much feels like it could have been done better. Almost like they rushed and cut a few corners. The lane assist system is hit and miss and I only use it on motorways. On small lanes it can detect the middle lane and try to send you into the ditch. The USB music player does its own thing and forgets music tracks and randomly ignores whole sections of playlists. The cruise control and distance to the car in front could have been linked if Vauxhall had only integrated the braking circuit into the system, like VW did. If they had they could have allowed the cruise control to automatically keep a set distance to the car in front and the cruise control could stick to the set speed even when going downhill. The wing mirrors don't fold in automatically. Surely motorised folding wing mirrors is not too much to ask for a car in this class. The boot lid is too heavy. So, ok, it's not a perfect car but still worth it if you like both practicality, comfort and a bit of fun. This car tries to be all things to all men on a budget and does a decent enough job of it. I've had the car for 3 months now and I'm looking forward to having it for the next three years.
Reliability
So far no issues at all.
Performance
Can't fault it. Goes like on rails with a rocket strapped to it.
Running Cost

3 out of 5

A bit thirsty, but that could be me getting used to it. Very good fuel consumption on motorways/A-roads using cruise control. High CO2 so not looking forward to what the tax man will charge me.
