The 2011 Vauxhall Antara is different from the previous model.
Many sectors of the crossover SUV have been increased in their importance by Vauxhall engineers.
The new Antara range’s engine consists of two diesel units, both fulfilling the emissions standard required by Euro 5.
Both are also mated to new 6-speed automatic and manual transmissions.
The 2.2 CDTI diesel engine can produce 163PS. It has an average diesel consumption of 44.8 mpg and 167g/km of CO2.
While the other engine can produce 184PS, managing 42.8 mpg and 175 g/km of CO2.
The new Antara is all-wheel drive. However, in normal condition the engine only generates the front wheels. It will also generate the rear wheels when slip is detected.
The revised chassis has more supple and comfortable ride. And the power steering offers better accuracy.
The interior has also been refreshed. Its instruments features new graphics and the center console has additional storage and new graceful leather trim.
Pricing for the 2011 Vauxhall Antara range is begun at £19,995 on-the-road.
