Perennial bridesmaid to Ford in the UK’s ‘most popular home brand’
stakes, though both are actually American owned. But Vauxhall is no Betamax to
Ford’s VHS. Its customers are loyal for a good reason – that’s why GM’s
long-held plan to ditch the badge and rebrand everything Opel has never taken
£11,255 - £14,295
Would you Adam and Eve it: a stylish city car from Vauxhall - with the Fiat 500 and MINI in its sights
£8,495 - £12,125
The Agila is Vauxhall's answer to the mini-MPV craze, and unlike the others, it actually looks OK. It's identical underneath to the Suzuki Splash, though there's no diesel here.
£34,995 - £38,995
Related to the Chevy Volt, and none the worse for it. Vauxhall’s new take on eco motoring.
£19,995 - £25,470
they had this urge they came up with the excruciating Frontera – a soft-roader
so lame it broke down in tears. The Antara could not be, and is not, as bad.
£12,995 - £24,160
Good-looking, solid, dependable... A recent facelift further improves a talented rival to the Ford Focus.
£19,040 - £23,925
With the Astra GTC coupe, Vauxhall offers a stellar combination of looks and drivability
Breathes even more fire but is now able to deploy it with more finesse. Even Clarkson’s impressed
£23,995 - £29,080
A good car, if not maybe a Top Gear one. You'll take in the scenery, but hardly notice the drive.
£9,495 - £18,080
Vauxhall has set the Corsa on the right track. Now it needs to make sure it can keep pace with the best.
£18,910 - £22,305
The Corsa VXR is available in two guises - but only one is brilliant though. Welcome the VXR 'Ring Edition.
£17,970 - £34,350
Vauxhall continues to hone the impressive Insignia with the addition of a punchy BiTurbo diesel
£19,350 - £35,780
More room means this is a better bet than the saloon, but there are more desirable alternatives
Not as mad as it looks, sadly. But still mad enough to smoke through a set of tyres, sideways. Serious bang for your buck.
£12,495 - £22,095
Nice to drive and with funky doors, the Meriva is very practical for such a small car. What’s not to like?
£16,995 - £23,490
Nice-looking Vauxhall mini MPV has a neat interior but that’s about it. Can’t hold a candle to a Yeti.
£45,000 - £49,550
The staid Vauxhall family enjoys another visit from its mad, crude
Aussie uncle. Strewth mate, what a ripper etc. Rear-wheel drive V8 excess. Eat
your heart out, M5.
£18,560 - £24,745
small MPV. Really good to drive, run and own. The second row of seats can be
folded to form a three-man hang-glider, lawnmower or motorbike. Not really.
£21,000 - £27,415
The Zafira turns premium with a sleek look and super-luxurious interior - but has prices to match.
