I've seen these, and I've seen a Vectra estate, they are virtually the same car, so whats the point??!!

I know its a Vauxhall so I shouldn't give a sh**, just curious!

Aye, it's a totally pointless car. It only has 4 seats too! There is no rear bench, it's just two seats! Old Volvo 480 stylee!

As with virtually everything Vauxhall - rubbish. (That oughta get the Astra boys going)

I mean how many so called mini-MPVs has Vauxhall got, I mean why have Zafira, Meriva, and Agila at the same time? Its like lets have the smallest MPV possible!

I am driving a SIGNUM today!! I picked up my hire car in Brussels this morning, and they said "we have UPGRADED you to a Signum!!" Having driven it, a 2.0 dti, I am left wondering what pile of crap I was upgraded from!! It is truly awful, terrible dash an dsterring wheel, both design and driving position is poor. And it is soo slow, a TDI passat anaihalated me on the E19, as the traffic cleared at about 90mph, the Signum, just had nothing, as I pulled in at about 150kmh, he tanked past me, sha,king his head!! ohh the shame of it!

It does rev to near 5 k though, but only in neutral at the lights. We had a bet to see how long I dare hold it foot to the floor in neutral in a traffic jam this morning!! I chickeded out at 48 seconds! LOL Will I break the minute by the weekend....!!!>>!

What a shed!

Mate, it is a joke. Has just no go, oh and the brakes are unreal. They bite after about an inch of travel, but gradually, if you keep them on, your foot goes a further 8 inches to the floor!! (seriously). As I came down a slip road at about 90mph this morning, I began to brake, then my foot went lower and lower to the floor. I reached down and managed to pull the seat lever up, and drag the seat closer to the wheel, so I could keep pressure on the pedal so I would not hit the truck stopped at the bottom!! Weird!! I think they have done the anti-ock system, by putting pinholes in the lines!!

I will try to get some "Signum abuse" pictures while I am here. Not sure it has enough oomph for a burnout, but the handbrake seems good!!!

The 3.0v6 Dti with an Isuzu sourced lump is decent performer, I actually like the look of them tbh. The newer ones are using Fiat sourced engines for the 1.9Dti with similar bhp and torque figures to the 150pd.

The black ones with tints remind me of the monoliths in that fillum "2001 A space Oddysey".

Thing is, i also kinda like the clean looks of the Signum, but after seeing the inside, I changed my opinion.

Did the designer have a job at Delorean perhaps? or even Lada??

Depreciation so high, I expect private buyers will love 'em.

Expect to see pikeys and the like in near-new ones with a blizzard of st.george flags dotted all over.

Well the Signum was deposited at Brussels and I told them what a piece of crap it was too! They just shrugged in agreement!

I have a Focus C max this week. I have to report its a hoot to drive, amazing limpit like grip, (seriously), virtually unstickable even with the DSP off and the tdi motor being ragged to death!

Hate to say it, but in a different league to the touran I had a few months back over here....! VW could pick up some suspension tips from the blue oval boys I am aftaid!
