Fab little car - looks good and great to drive!

AdvantagesEasy to park, nippy and looks fabulous

DisadvantagesDifficult for non-agile people to get in the back

"...3 years ago from the Vauxhall garage. I have never had any problems with it! It handles really well. It's only a 1.4 but I do have fun overtaking other cars with larger engines. Responds really well when you need the power. I have an automatic gearbox, so cannot comment on the manual one. It's only when you get in other people's cars that you realise quite how compact the car is. This is my first car! And three years' later I still smile when I ..." Read review

The Tigra Exclusiv is a car for those who don't like to drive!

AdvantagesLooks good

DisadvantagesExpensive, uncomfortable and not a great ride

"The Vauxhall Tigra Exclusiv (this is the new shape convertible top specification). 18 months ago i was looking for a new car, as a young (mid twenties) woman with no children or prospects of having any in the near future i test drove the Vauxhall Tigra. To be honest i didn't need to test drive it, the minute i realised i could afford it i wanted it! However buying a car on a decision made by how great i'd look with a 2-seater convertible was ..."

An automatic Sports Car ??................please !!

AdvantagesFun car

Disadvantagesbasically, its a corsa

"...it. Pretty much the same as vauxhall did with the calibra, that uses a cavalier chasis and engine. Dont get me wrong the car is really nice, its responsive, quite fast and has the sport box option on the auto gearbox, and this really does make a different, it allows you to get and extra 2000 revs from each gear, and belive me, in a vauxhall, this makes a hell of a difference. The car comes in all different colours and with optional sunroof ..." Read review

Nice car

AdvantagesGood looks, hanles well, economical, dead locks fitted

DisadvantagesExpensive new for the 1.6

"I got an ex demo tigra that was nearly new with about 3000 miles on the clock, i've had the car now for nearly 2 years with no problems with it at all. The best aspect of the tigra i find is how it handles, it takes corners like a dream. The dash is much the same as a corsa which i think could have been different, but apart from that the inside is pretty plush and comfotable. Not so good for tall people getting in the back, but the seats back there ..." Read review

Tigra - Chunky fun

AdvantagesFun to drive, economical

DisadvantagesInside is of basic standard

"The 17" alloy wheels, low suspension and compact length make the Tigra look chunky and sturdy. From the front it's hard to distinguish the Tigra from an Astra or a Corsa. There's no mistaking it from the back though as (apart from the Tigra badge) there's a chunky boot with plenty of space that houses the folded-down roof (and still leaves you with enough space to go shopping). It sticks to the road very well and feels solid... with the roof up. ..." Read review

roarrrrrrrr Tigger

Advantageslooks good

Disadvantagescramped for space

"Looks nice doesn't it? Smooth lines, curvy body, 'Suit you sir?' Indeed, it drives well, though can be a little sore on the petrol. Like many of these types of vehicle, it is designed for those of us who are the stature of racing jockeys. Unfortunately that does not include my good self. It is immeasurably worse if you are a back seat passenger. Believe me, I have tried it. Myself and my friend's brother were back seat passengers in one. ..." Read review

Its very acessable and compact. before I had afew problems with driving an automatic car, but i had no problems what so ever with this car.. it was very comftable. With other automatics I always found that I needed to be doing something else, but with this car you are gratful not to be doing anby gears because it is ust so damn comftable!!!

My Baby Tigra! Mmmmm

AdvantagesDraws loads of attention

DisadvantagesToo much like corsa inside

"I bought my Tigra 2 weeks ago, Its 2002 1.4 and Black, mmm! After driving my dads £28,000 Mitsubishi Shogun for 6 months and then going to my tigra, i can honestly say it wasnt as much of a down fall as i thought. The model i bought has got, electric windows, electric mirrors, aircon and heated mirrors! Which is as much as the shogun had, apart from the cruise controll of course but thats just being greedy! This car is fab, it looks amazing ..." Read review

Sporty car, without the high price tag

AdvantagesLooks Great, Economical

DisadvantagesNot much room in the back for passengers

"I bought my Tigra 2 years ago and have never had any problems with it. I love it. I find the Petrol consumption on it pretty good. It warms up quickly in the cold weather, the engine fan works quickly and well in the hot spells. The Insurance on it is low, in about Group 9. Its small enough to get into small parking spaces while everyone else is still looking for one! Boot space is pretty deep and I can get a wheelchair in there when I need ..." Read review

BEST THING IVE BOUGHT!!!

Advantageslooks great and made well

Disadvantageslittle room for passengers

"...best car I purchased 10/10 vauxhall i just hope i dont have problems now for prasing it!!! Its a very fast car which I was quite scared about when i first drove it as i am used to driving a 1.1 and the man at the garage described tigras as corsa's on steroids. But i was fine as its road handling is very good. Someone wrote in the comments for this if the rear vision was limited in fairness i would say slighty but not alot. ..." Read review

Vauxhall tigra (FEEL A MILLION POUNDS)

AdvantagesVery fast and classy. superb on petrol

DisadvantagesShame not more seats

"This was always my idea of my girl dream car and it is. Its superb! I do quite alot of travelling & this car is excellent for petrol consumption. Not only is the car good on petrol consumption it is so comfortable. The car has heated leather seats which is amazing when driving as they heat up so quick. Also the interior is just as classy as the exterior. the car gains speed really quickly and is so nippy. I feel like a james bond girl in the car. ..." Read review

chuck it about

Advantageslooks great, sticks to the road like glue, very comfortable, deep boot space for shopping

Disadvantagesnot much room for rear passengers unless they are small children

"...the pleasure of driving a vauxhall tigra three years ago, vauxhall racing green the colour, alloy wheels and rear spoiler, looked great, handled even better. very quick and responsive for a 1.4i . myself being 6ft 1inch tall found it very comfortable in the front all tho my friends who sat in the back did not think so. my three year old daughter fitted in ok all tho the child seat was difficult to fit because of the restricted space. The boot space ..." Read review

Sleek and Sporty

AdvantagesVery comfortable, great acceleration, smooth gear changing, sporty looks.

DisadvantagesBack seats - Need to be under 5ft to sit in them, but thats a small price to pay for having such an amazing little number.

"Bought a vauxhall tigra in july 2002 and is a damn decent car. Very comfortable to sit in (i believe it has the same seats as the corsa sport), very very nice to drive and a smooth ride (unless you're a tall person sat in the back). Would fully recommend the car to anyone who wants a sporty looking car and dont want to break the bank. I paid 4000 for a 1996N with 46000 miles, back in July, and from what i have seen they are still going for around ..." Read review

WHO SAYS PERFORMANCE NEEDS TO COST THE EARTH

AdvantagesPerformance,Style,Economical

DisadvantagesNot family friendly,need to be small

"Having bought this car 2 years ago i have just invested in a full respay to bring the looks back .I have had 40000 miles from this car and have taken it to France and Spain so not just for the town .Resale prices speak for thereselves and they hold there value.I cant fault the car apart from the fact there is minimum room in the 2 rear seats but you know this before you buy the car and it is a reliable sporty type without the running costs of other ..."

Vauxhall Tigra 1.4

Advantageslow maintainance

Disadvantagesvery hard suspension

"The Tigra has many charms. It's great for starters - a perfectly compact hatchback with just two seats, providing ample space for you and that one special person you choose to share your Tigra with. Although its low roof seems over-whelming it still leaves the car with more than enough luggage space to indulge into some real retail therapy. I highly recommend this car for those who enjoy driving and don't see a car as something only to get you from ..." Read review
