    Default From Astravan to Vectra.

    Hello everyone..After 5 years and 67000 trouble free miles in an astravan 1.7dti I have decided to have a change...Had a look at new vans but realised I could get a new Vectra for around the price of a new van..I do a lot of fishing and need a big boot so the vectra is ideal..
    After a bit of research I went into the local vauxhall dealer and was talked into Vectra Design cdti 120 ps which will be delivered after Christmas.

    Just a couple of questions.. What does the "ps" mean I know it's bhp but why "ps" ?..also is there a lot of difference driving between the 120 and 150. and can you tell which is which from the outside .
    Thanks and merry Christmas to you all

    Firstly to the site mate!

    Secondly, IMHO there is a huge difference between the 120 and 150bhp. The 150 is like a rocket compared to tge snail of a 120, but if you havent driven a 150, the 120 is OK as there is nothing to compare against.

    I also think that the 120 is a more reliable engine? Some may say otherwise!

    Dont really know what the PS means, im sure someone will be along shortly.

    And unfotunately, yes you can tell from the outside that your car is a 120ps...if it has the CDTI badges on the back, the 120 CDTI badges will be all silver and the 150 badges will have a RED TI!

    Hope this helps and merry xmas mate, enjoy the site....its great with loads of useful advice!


    Bye bye Vec B

    PS is the German name for horsepower, Pferdestärke. 1PS is roughly 0.98632 hp to SAE standards. It's also 0.7355kW.

    Glad you asked now, aren't you?

    Thanks for the replies ...Can't wait to get the new car and to ask the sales-lady what the "ps" means.
