The Antara's high-set driving position gives the king-of-the-road feel that many 4x4 fans love, although it's hard to judge where the steeply sloping bonnet ends. Likewise, there’s a decent range of seat and steering wheel adjustment, but the seats are short on thigh support. The dashboard has too many fiddly buttons.
Vauxhall Antara 4x4 space & practicality
There’s plenty of space for five in the Antara’s cabin, with lots of head- and legroom all-round. A reclining seat back and flat floor make life comfortable for those in the back, and access is easy. On the downside, the boot is smaller than many rivals’, and the high floor makes it comparatively shallow.
Vauxhall Antara 4x4 equipment
Entry-level Antaras come with air-conditioning and alloy wheels, but you have to go for a four-wheel-drive car to get parking sensors and cruise control. Only top-spec SE Nav models have automatic wipers and Bluetooth, features that really should be standard across the range.
