    Default Vectra Vs Mondeo

    Hi. I have owned a 1.8 petrol Vectra for about 5 years now and have always been happy'ish about it performance. Last week I used the company pool car which is a 05 Mondeo TDCi (6 speed) - It absolutely flew and would leave the Vectra standing plus I did about twice the distance on the same amount of fuel (only driving faster).

    As the mondeo is only a 1.9 (or maybe 2.0) can anyone compare the Verctra deisel with the mondeo. I would really like to know if the performance is equal or better.

    Top Mondeo unit is a 136hp Peugoet/****roen engine, with the same Getrag 'box as the Astra (M32 derivitive).

    The Vectra's 150hp engine is better, but runs the F40 which is a bit of a dog for all accounts.

    the 1.8 in the vectra is a bit under-powered you need to drive a cdti to see what you like

    A 1.8 petrol vec and 1.9 tdci mondeo is not a fair comparison imo. I drove the TDCI for a few weeks, and if you're not use to a turbo it'll will always seem like a big leap in power when you put your foot down.

    The Mondeo 115 TDCi is very peaky, but not that fast, my old 2.2DTi was a much nicer drive, much more refined and dare I say, a touch quicker in a straight line.

    The Mondeo 130 TDCi, is much the same, has a 6th gear, a tad quicker and drinks more.

    The Mondeo 2.2 TDCi is an animal. Very quick, Very easy to drive quickly. But, it drinks like a fish. I had a Ghia X Estate last year with that engine. Loved how it went, but wasn't overly impressed with 35mpg!

    I think the 1.9 CDTi Signum I have now would keep up with it, but would definately overtake it while it was refueling.

    What's better? Subjective choice. I had a Mk2 Mondeo V6 and it was lovely. I drove my Boss's Mk3 and thought I was in a Peugeot. Hated the way it drove and still do.

    I think the Vectra / Signum has aged better too.

    Thanks so many answers.. I had a 1.8 Petrol Mondeo for a few weeks while my vectra was in the body shop and I hated it - performance and fuel economy were about the same but equiptment and comfort the vectra won no problem (Mondeo was an 07 - my vectra is an 52) - I love my vectra although bits are starting to go as she is getting close to 100K (all mine). I would certainly look towards a deisel next time after your posting. Thanks

    My opinion is exactly what Andrew has said above. I mean exactly!

    Get a test drive in a CDTi 150 and see for yourself.
