    Default Wider Car?

    Heres one for the techno heads!!

    My new face lifted motor "seems" a lot wider than my old B veccie.
    Question is does any one know what the differences are inside and outside across the mirrors?

    Default size

    i posted about this on the vectra sport web site- it's a bit of an illusion-

    according to the brochure specs, C is 4 inches longer, and 3 inches wider, although much of the bigger width is because the C mirrors are bigger

    biggest difference is the front end- the C has a shorter bonnet, and the windscreen is at a shallower gradient, which means the junction of the windscreen and dashboard is about 4 inches further forward- but I agree, my vectra B seemed much smaller in comparison....

    Thanks for this info once again. I just knew it was wider inside, but did not know by how much. It makes a big difference, and every one who knew my other veccie makes remarks about how big it is [the car that is]

    Default

    It's much wider than the current Mondeo, Primera, A4 and BM3 inside. Much more elbow room. I have to be carefull on a 6ft width restriction near where I work. Clipped the passenger mirror once!
