Before we bought the laguna we looked at a focus, god they're cramped inside !! Even the steering wheel was tiny ... Can't beat the laguna privilege sofa seats !

I looked at a 2.2 Vectra estate before the Laguna !

Always thought Vauxhalls looked a little "square" (not so much dowdy, just....ya know, square)

So glad I got the French offering....

I agree about the vectra looking square, even the interior is square !!

I'd never have a vectra again, we have a work car which is a 2004 1.9td Sri spec and its awful ... Had to drive it home once (when my lovely looking laguna broke down) and I hated it ...
