Abstract

A flexible service interval display, a V6 engine with a multi-ram intake system, a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a completely new 5-speed automatic gearbox are the highlights of the new Vectra’s powertrain. And to ensure that all the power is transferred reliably and safely to the road, the new Vectra comes with an electronic stability program called ESPPlus, a sophisticated braking system with ABS, EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution) and CBC (Cornering Brake Control) as well as electronic map-controlled power steering.
