Vauxhall Vectra facelift

When it was first launched some three years ago, the Vectra came in for criticism because of the blandness of its nose. And here, we see evidence of the mid-life facelift that will be debut late this summer. This mule, caught on cold-weather test in Finland, sports a much more aggressive face, with multi-lensed headlights that are remarkably similar to those of the much more recently launched Astra. It is likely that Vauxhall will also take the opportunity to make mild modifications to the suspension to deliver a more sporting driving experience. Likewise, the steering may also receive attention to give more feel and more precise response. And just as with the Astra range, which will gain a hot VXR model later this year, the Vectra should also gain a VXR model, although this is unlikely to appear before 2006.



Hehe...I love drilling in that Vauxhalls are all just rebadged, "Brit-ized" Opels. :p
the most ugly part (the rear) they didn't change at all
the rear allways looked like that car in GTA3 :D
Facelifted aye...exactly what has been lifted..it looks the same :shock: . They should remove the face instead.
It doesn't have prelude lights, they've just been made to look like that, if you look carefully you can see the outline of the actual lights, very similar to the recent Astra design.
The front is very astra/vxr220 (speedster), which makes sense, most car companys are having that "corprate nose" thing these days. I always liked the back, the chrome strip just looked perfect. But maybe I'm odd!
Check this out. This is the Saturn AURA concept introduced at Detroit. It sits on the same platform as the Vectra. Perhaps this is similar to what we'll get in Europe:

the saturn coupe is quite amazing after watchin tuner tranformation. does 0-60 in 5.8 with some mods! and 5.4 with nos!
It looks a bit pricey..it better not be as expensive as last time. Holden gets these cars and they decided one day to slash $2,500AUS off cos it was too expensive.
