The Vectra is now six years old and is reaching the end of its design life. A replacement will go on sale next year. This model, meanwhile, first underwent Euro NCAP testing four years ago. While the 2001 car has more safety items fitted to it as standard, its body is little changed. However, improvements to its restraint systems and its extra airbags do make a difference and, despite its age, the Vectra still provides reasonable protection for its occupants. It came close to scoring four stars in the frontal and side impact tests.
