The Agila may have appealed to few people of working age, but in many ways it's a car that makes a lot of sense - especially as a used buy. In reality this is little more than a rebadged Suzuki Wagon-R, with Vauxhall's own engines - but not necessarily any the worse for that. With a spacious cabin, strong reliability, easy entry and exit plus a Vauxhall dealer in every town, the Agila is an easy car to own.
With its futuristic styling and cutting-edge running gear the Vauxhall Ampera should have been a smash hit, but as the first vehicle of its kind it was maybe too advanced for a very conservative market. The first ever range extender to be sold in the UK, the Ampera featured plug-in technology with a 1.4-litre petrol engine. The Ampera's wheels are only ever driven by electric motors, the engine serving only as a generator to top up the batteries once they've dropped to 20 per cent charged. As a result there's no need to worry about flat batteries and you can enjoy regenerative braking plus lots of instant torque. The Ampera was good enough to be voted 2012 Car of the Year but this didn't translate into sales success; it's still worth a closer look as a used buy though.
The Vauxhall Astra Mk6 was a massive improvement over its predecessor, but it was still only average in most departments - at best. As a used buy the Astra is much easier to recommend though, largely because of the value factor - you get plenty for your money. And with lots of examples to choose from, you won't struggle to find the best engine, trim and body style for your needs. The three-door GTC looks especially sharp while the capacious estate is ideal for anyone on a budget who needs to cart stuff about.
Tardis-like design has become very popular in recent years, and one of the first truly small cars to offer serious interior space was the original Vauxhall Meriva. Based on the Corsa, this high-roofed mini-MPV is brilliantly versatile thanks to its FlexSpace seating, which allows the three rear seats to be adjusted individually. Throw in dependability and surprisingly good dynamics with low purchase costs, and the Meriva makes a lot of sense.
Vauxhall's replacement for the Omega was based on the Vectra, so it didn't win many fans as it was seen as an overpriced family hatch rather than a distinct model worth a premium. That's good news for used buyers; the Signum's lack of visibility has ensured that residuals are less than rock solid. However, with a high specification, practicality galore and a decent choice of engines, the Signum has a lot to offer.
If you're after cheap practical transport the Vectra is well worth a look, although it won't float the boat of an enthusiast driver. Reliability is okay, as are the dynamics, but bland interior and exterior design do the Vectra no favours. However the estate is truly capacious and the CDTi engines are excellent - but the earlier Di units are gruff.
While Vauxhall's small family car was always outclassed, it has plenty to offer for those who care more about value than image or pin-sharp dynamics. So while there may not be much of a feel-good factor on offer from the Astra, a massive range of engines, trim levels and body styles ensure there's plenty of choice, prices are low, and so are running costs.
When it comes to affordable family transport, few cars provide better value than the Vauxhall Insignia. The large family car sector is dominated by prestigious German brands, which ensures the Insignia has an especially tough time. As a used buyer that plays straight into your hands, as hefty depreciation means you get plenty of car for your money. In isolation the Insignia is very competent as it’s usually well-equipped, comfortable and practical, while running costs are manageable and purchase prices are low. A wide model range means there's a model for everyone and the Vauxhall makes a great long-distance cruiser. But many rivals offer greater reliability, more cabin or boot space, better refinement or higher safety levels. But the most talented rivals invariably cost a lot more, which is why the Insignia is such an attractive used buy.
If you're a firm believer in the old adage that there's no substitute for cubic inches, you'll love the Monaro. With its V8 up front that displaces 5.7 or 6.0 litres, this is a full-on muscle car for the 21st century. Discreet, fast, reliable and cheap to buy, the Monaro can also be tuned very easily, if the entry-level 329bhp isn't enough for you. Just make sure your OPEC subs are up to date before you buy one.
Baby coupé-cabriolets often end up as something of a joke - you've only got to look at the Mitsubishi Colt CZC and Nissan Micra CC for the proof. Some work better than others though, like Vauxhall's Tigra for example. Quick enough, reasonably well packaged and decent to drive with the roof up, things only go awry dynamically when the roof is dropped - which kind of defeats the object really.
Although Vauxhall didn't introduce the compact MPV, it did revolutionise the breed with its pop-up third row of seats. While rivals have now caught up, the second take on this compact MPV still offers brilliant family transport thanks to low purchase and running costs, and in most cases decent reliability too, especially in petrol-engine form. Throw in surprisingly good dynamics plus lots of choice, and you've got ideal family transport.
