The title of the post may be confusing, well it’s in reference to the new Vauxhall Signum, an executive car costing around £28,000. The reason the title says ‘vauxhall part man, part machine’ is because essentially it is a machine (a car) but it is stuffed full of boys toys that it feels like it was designed for a man and the car itself is a man wanting to show off his toys (in my opinion anyway)
The Signum was launched in 2003 and was marketed as a premium car for work, family and play wrapped up into one with lots of space and style due to its unique vauxhall parts. The car looks as if its based on the Vauxhall Vectra but longer and combines the best vauxhall parts and features from other cars such the storage ability of an estate, flexibility of a larger multiple personnel vehicle and comfort of a hatchback.
To reveal why the Vauxhall Signum is becoming the most popular Vauxhall estate car you have to examine its car parts. Firstly the very impressive 3 litre V6 engine is a powerful engine which can outperform a Ferrari 360 (according to Total Vauxhall magazine). Normally for this type of car engine in this type of car you would expect to pay no less than 35,000 GBP, but the Signum under cuts this budget and still crams in more Vauxhall parts to make the car unique. Of course you can have different version with the most models using the 2.2 Direct ECOTEC car engine (uses petrol direct injection), still excellent value for the money.
With sport models you can get all the trimming from sporty suspension to 19 inch allow wheels and electric door mirror wipers. It would not be a Signum if it did not have the extras such as chrome door handles and carbon-fibre door trims. Read the rest of this entry »
