    Default VX Antara

    Hi all,

    When visiting the local VX dealers yesterday to see how my poorly Siggy was (long story!) one of the sales guys pulled up in a Black 2.0 Cdti Antara SE Auto, the first time I had seen one in the flesh so to speak.

    I had a good look around, and in, it and have to say that it looks a fabulous motor - although I don't think I would be wanting to pay the £28000 list price on it.

    Has anyone else seen one yet - and, if so, what do you think about it?

    P.S. One of the other sales guys said that he had been on a test driving day a week or 2 back and he was surprised as to how slow the Antara seemed with the diesel engine in it. I presume this is either because its a much bigger motor (and probably heavier too) OR the new 2.0 Cdti engine (which is still 150Bhp) doesn't feel as quick as the 1.9 Cdti does, maybe a mixture of both.

    Spotted one outside the local dealer, did not stop to look at it but looked good but £28k is a bit steep especially as just down the road was the Chevrolet dealer and outside was the Captiva. Looked just as good and comes in at £25k with 7 seat option.

    I've been pondering this issue lately, I saw a Nissan CashKey the other day, and this type of vehicle is set to replace the family saloon according to the media, what worries me is the fact there are so many ppl driving now who just can't drive, imagine as many of these plastic 4X4's as Vectra's on the road and it adds up to a serious case of lots of dead pedestrians imo.
