Motors: Latest Vectra is all new.
The refreshed models arrive in the UK in early autumn and Vauxhall says new prices will be announced next month, which indicates a likely rise.
The latest Vectras are completely new from the windscreen forward, featuring the distinctive new family nose.
There are also new wheel designs, re-profiled back bumper on some models and revised range of colours.
Interiors get new materials including a soft-touch fascia, new seat fabrics, extra door trim inserts and a fresh instrument panel.
There's also a smaller diameter steering wheel
Suspension and chassis tweaks coincide with the arrival of a new 2.8-litre turbo-charged V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission at the top of the range.
The best sellers are expected to continue to be the 1.9CDTi turbodiesel in both 120bhp and 150bhp. A 1.8-litre petrol model with a power output of 140bhp will be added next spring
