I bought this car in September in Antigua blue and have had a constant smile on my face since. Its nippy for a 1.4i, gorgeous and can be thrown around corners as handles superbly well. Altough having a feminine image my boyfriend drives this car at every oportunity and loves it. Its amazing how much stuff you can fit in this car. Had no trouble fitting camping gear, a holdall, two sleeping bags, pillows and some shopping. A very enjoyable car to drive, especially if you like to grab peoples attention. A lovely car that you can never grow tired of and will not be disappointed with.
I bought the 1.8 16v Exclusiv model about a month ago and have been very impressed.
Having purchased it in Saffire black with Irmscher body kit, it is hard work keeping it sparkling, but the hard work really pays off as the car is a beauty!
Fuel kind of drains away anything after 80mph, but keep it within the 3000-4000 rev range and you're laughing. For a two-seater, boot space is a real bonus, especially with roof up.
My better half says it turns loads of heads, but I'm to busy watching the road to notice... yeah right! I love it!
I recently purchased a Vauxhall Tigra Exclusiv 1.8 with extra Irmscher styling, which is not listed here. I loved the roof going down within seconds and the car really does look stunning.
After owning a BMW Mini Cooper, I did not expect the ride and handling to be anywhere near as good - how wrong was I? I found it so much better, especially with the 1.8 engine - it really does shift.
The only very minor downfall is maybe the interior. I don't think there is anything wrong with it, but it could definately have been a little better style-wise. However, the functionalty and practicality is spot on.
With the Exclusiv, we got heated leather seats which are perfect for those cooler days, especially when you want the roof down.
I owned a Tigra for over three years and when I changed my car I decided to go for the Tigra again. I went for the sports model with leather and have enjoyed driving. However I bought it last September, and in October tried using the roof and experienced problems.
As it was winter I waited and in January I took the car back to have this resolved. It is now going back in for the sixth time. The garage has now admitted they are having similar problems with the roofs on other Tigras. Hopefully they can sort this flaw, because I love my car.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Amazing car, once driven, never forgotton, forget all the pretenders like BMW Z4 and Mercedes SLK, they will never have the passion of a Porsche
I love this car! Handling is great, its fun to drive and even reasonably practical!
