Vauxhall has made a few minor updates to the Agila, Corsa, Meriva, Vectra, Signum and Zafira ranges for 2005.
  • ABS anti-lock brakes - an essential safety feature - are now standard on all Agila mini-MPVs.
  • A new 1.2-litre petrol engine is offered in the Agila and Corsa. This develops 79bhp; in the Agila (from 7,995) it produces 100 mph, 0-60 in 12.2 seconds and 47.1mpg. In the Corsa, it can give up to 109mph, 0-60 in 11.8 seconds and 48.3mpg.
  • Meriva compact MPVs are offered with the new 1.4-litre petrol engine (90bhp, as in the latest Astra range), which replaces the 87bhp 1.6 8v. Quicker and more economical, it delivers 0-60 in 13 seconds, 44.1mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 154g/km; prices remain unchanged.
  • Vectra models are offered with Life trim, instead of LS; prices remain the same. A six-speed automatic gearbox is offered with the 150bhp 1.9 CDTi diesel engine (as fitted in the Saab 9-3, costing from 18,055 in the Vectra Energy).
  • Signum models are also offered with the six-speed auto and 150bhp CDTi diesel engine, replacing the 2.2 DTi models; prices from 21,845 (Signum Elegance).
  • Vectra SRi Navigation models cost 500 more than the standard SRi, saving 400 on an SRi plus optional sat nav.
  • New options for SRi and Signum include automatic headlights, IDS Plus adaptive suspension and rear seat audio controls.
  • Zafira MPVs now come with rake/reach-adjustable suspension (Expression and Life versions); Life models gain a CD/radio.
