A compact SUV with striking muscular looks and an authoritative presence on the road, the Vauxhall Antara has real appeal. With its spacious cabin and up-to-date technology, it’s a great vehicle for both drivers and passengers alike.
Inside the Antara, there’s plenty of space and the high seating position means that there’s good visibility and a commanding presence. The dashboard looks smart, with graphic displays, a leather-covered steering wheel with stereo remotes and a slick black and silver colour scheme.
The Antara’s cabin can comfortably seat five adults thanks to its high position, with decent legroom space and reclining seat backs. This level of comfort is aided by the extra benefits of air conditioning, heated front seats and tinted windows. The space in the boot is a plus too – the rear seats fold down completely flat to expand it if you require and the large tailgate and low loading lip means that putting bulky items in the boot is never a problem.
The standard equipment list is impressive and it includes automatic self-levelling suspension, silver-effect roof rails, power-adjustable heated door mirrors and Bluetooth connectivity for your phone. Its standard safety kit is also extensive. It ensures safer handling thanks to electronic stability control and traction control, as well as six airbags, a tyre-pressure monitoring system, a hill-descent control system and hill-start assist. All of this makes it a safe and reliable choice, especially if you’re looking for a stylish and attractive small-SUV as your family car.
What’s more, depending on which engine you choose, there’s enough power to tow a speedboat or caravan with the Vauxhall Antara. It has self-levelling suspension, an electric parking brake and hill assist, all of which makes it a strong competitor for those who are looking for a family car that can easily accommodate their driving needs, whether driving day-to-day or for a trip away.
