    Default thinking of changeing a vectra c to signum, but unsure on boot space

    Hi folks

    New to this, but after some advise please. i have a vectra c at the moment but are getting shut, i`am considering a signum but are unsure on the boot space.

    Auto trader has the boot dimensions on the vectra as larger, but actually is it? is the signum similar in length? and also higher (boot door allowance).

    If not may go down vectra estate route.

    any views on this.

    cheers

    Signum seats slide forwards to give more space and the fold down system is great

    having had both I would say with the seats upright the hatch has more boot space front to back due to the signum having more rear cabin space for the rear passengers.. however you can stack higher in the signum and its foldiing seats do got flatter which then gives it more boot space than the hatch..

    The rear seats fold totally flat in the Siggy so when they are down you have a huge space to carry stuff, its like having a van. The rear seats are adjustable so can be moved forwads to allow for more boot space when the seats are up if needed. Because of the flatter angle of the glass rear window taller box shaped items can be transported in the siggy. You should take a look at one with the seats flat and see how big they are.

    I think the Signum is best, good width and height that gets even bigger with the seats fully down.

    It really depends on the needs. For boot space, go for the estate, but the Signum is versatile in the way, that it is the most comfortable for passengers and it can be converted to "estate" by folding the seats. If you often carry 3 passengers and need estate boot space, the Signum can't do it. I personally rarely need that much boot space anyway, so I have a hatch. Signum is the best of both worlds, but not at the same time. It also depends on the passengers, kids fit fine in the rear seats of a hatch, but adults taller than 175 cm tend to bang the head on the roof in the back seats.

    Signum is great for rear passenger space... I have two kids and now they cant kick the back of the front seats and they have more rear head room so bonus.
    Granted the boot is small but its sufficient 90% of the time. Ive had quite a large bath tub in the back of the signum (seat down of course) with no probs what so ever.

    Just think about what you are gonna use it for, number of passengers you are likey to carry, etc and then deciide.

    Aye, it's nice that the kids can't kick the back of my seats like they could in the Bora.
