    Default Vectra 1.9 CDTi '04 vs '05 and after...

    I'm picking up a 2004 Vectra 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 on Tuesday.

    Whilst looking I noticed the '04 versions are listed as doing 0-60 in 8.8 seconds, whereas anything '05 and after supposedly does 0-60 in 9.8 seconds, why the second difference?

    I'm certainly no expert, but spec-wise they look almost the same, both 1.9, 150bhp, and the latter versions have more torque.

    Can anyone explain why the '04 versions should be 1 second faster to 60mph?

    one change is that 04 didnt have DPF, where its possible on the 05 onwards.

    Would that explain the 0-60 difference?

    07 CDTI 150 does 0-60 in 8.9 secs, according to VX figures.

    You don't get a diesel for its 0-60 time, try 30-70 instead. LOL

    Where are you getting those figures from? I was just going by what I've seen on AutoTrader and Parkers website (s), and they only list 0-60 times.

    I'm just curious really, I don't see any obvious difference that would make a 1 second difference. Just trying to learn a thing or two

    Using manufacturer's own figures. Admittedly not known to be 100% accurate.

    If you search the net there are several different 0-60 times listed. I think the figure given in Parkers is just plain wrong! 9.8 seconds is too slow for a 150bhp car of this size.

    Yep. But the 9.8 figure is close to VX quoted figures for 1.9 CDTI 150 Estates Signums and Autos. Maybe someone got their wires crossed.

    The 1.9 150 is 8.8s and 8.9s for both pre facelift and facelift hatchbacks respectively.
