The latest Vauxhall Antara cars in stock
The rugged Vauxhall Antara is just one of a new breed of versatile all-wheel drive compact crossover SUVs. Perfect for the growing family, it’s just as good off-road as it is for city miles. Offering a range of excellent diesel engines, it’s a good bet if you’re looking for a family transporter that can handle challenging terrain as well as longer motorway journeys. The entry-level 2.2 CDTI Exclusive front-wheel drive model is a good option, with CO2 emissions of 167g/km and an average 45mpg compared with its hungrier four-wheel drive brothers. Expect to pay £265 for your first year’s road tax and £190 per year after that. It comes with a manual transmission and reaches a top speed of 117mph. However, if it’s a four wheel drive you’re after, the 2.2 CDTi 163 AWD SE is top of the range, offering sporty alloy wheels, metallic paint, cruise control and leather seats. All models in this range come with front, side and curtain airbags, a stability control system, and an innovative hill descent system to help with traction when driving in particularly steep areas. The Exclusiv four-wheel drive models also have a trailer stability feature, which is great for towing caravans or trailers. Upgrade to the SE model for automatic headlights, climate control, tinted rear windows, and heated front seats. Inside, the Antara is spacious and comfortable, fitting 5 adults easily with plenty of head and legroom – taller passengers will thank you for it. You can fold the rear seats flat for extra storage too, although the boot space is more than adequate – you’ll get a whopping 1,420 litres of boot space with the seats folded flat. You’ll love the elevated driving position too, which provides a great view of the road and an excellent driving experience. Combine this with the integrated MP3/iPod connection, optional hands-free phone kit and satellite navigation, and you have everything you need for harmonious family travelling.
