Reactions of the steering wheel are precise and timely, the car is stable and doesn’t roll in maneuvers.

Opel Vectra is regarded as a good representative of D class providing its owner with nice equipment and acceptable comfort levels.

But what it will be if we put a mighty engine under the hood and configure the chassis for an active drive? Let’s find it out taking for a test drive Opel Vectra OPC. We'll rent the car in Moscow.

Exterior

Opel Vectra OPC’s exterior is quite extravagant. Low overhangs, a front bumper with large air intakes and a big splitter, wide alloy wheel arches, the rear spoiler and elongated exhaust pipes catch the eye. At the same time, the German car looks strict and respectable. Sports attributes and business motives are harmoniously combined in Opel Vectra and please the eye.

Interior

The Interior of the fastest Vectra features bucket front seats with lots of adjustments, an instrument panel with blue scales and risks, as well as aluminum pedal pads and a three-spoke steering wheel with perforated leather inserts. The ergonomics of the driver’s seat is good, but not perfect. In particular, the driver's door window regulator is located quite low and under a certain angle, which is uncomfy; the climate control unit doesn’t have a screen of its own, thus you have to constantly look at the central screen to set the desired temperature.

As for the rest, the driver should be quite comfy. The rear sofa can accommodate only two passengers, while the third passengers will complain of a big central bulge on the seat.

In motion

Opel Vectra OPC is equipped with:

  • 2.8 l diesel engine, 280 HP
  • Automatic six-speed gearbox.

The thrust on the front wheels is excessive. If you carelessly push the gas pedal, the car will start grind the asphalt, but when the speed goes up, the situation improves - after gaining 70km/h the car stops slipping, and the engine displays miraculous elasticity stunning with good acceleration at any gear. It provokes for a drive and keeps you in tone.

Handling is a pleasant surprise. Reactions of the steering wheel are precise and timely, the car is stable and doesn’t roll in maneuvers. The car slightly understeers, but at the limit of the chassis capacities.

The driving comfort is relevant. In particular,the suspension ignores small bumps and assures nice smoothness of ride.

Summing up

Opel Vectra OPC is an amazing car. It combines quality of a business class car and performance of a hot hatch. It’s nice in everyday use thanks to a well-balanced suspension, good manageability and a mighty engine, at the same it’s not an uncompromised sports car. This model is sure to interest those who want to get maximum of driving pleasure without compromising  comfort, while if you want to go to a race track, you’d better consider other options.
