Eeeeeeeeeee they are killing off the Veccy for this... I thought they were joking!! The current Vectra has an air of class and style about it; this one looks like a cheap and tack upgrade to the current Astra/Corsa and from the front, a wannabe Merc/Lexus but not half as stylish.

Bad bad move imho thumbsdown

Just looks like an overgrown Astra.

TBH I dont like the way current makers like to make all their cars look the same, just different sizes...

funny u should say that custom, a merc designer was on board the team, me personally i think its gonna be like the fiesta, love it or hate it its gonna be everywhere. hopefully it will address the driver comfort issue that i have always had with the vectra, I always liked the looks of any vectra (and earlier cav's in uk) but never ever got totally comfy in them.

It looks mahooooosive in that pic - and sits way to high!!

That blue grille looks well

Still, no doubt the chavs, sorry, modifiers out there would soom paint it / chrome it quicker than a spotty 17 year old could fit Lexus lights to his Saxo...

Has anyone else noticed the chrome plastic bits on the rear of the new Astra's looks very cheap and tacky when sitting behind them at lights and the like?

I only noticed this the other day, it looks as though it's "blinged up" but it's not it's just standard, the problem is it's an Astra not an Escalade!!
