Vauxhall Omega Overview
The Vauxhall Omega is classed as an executive car and is produced by the British car manufacturing company Vauxhall Motors. Vauxhall is more commonly known as Opel across continental Europe, and this car as the Opel Omega. The first generation Opel Omega was known as the Vauxhall Carlton in the UK and it wasn’t until 1994, the second generation Omega, that it was branded as the Vauxhall Omega in the UK. These cars are not much to look at and are known for their quick depreciation, but they are cheap to buy, drive well and are very comfortable. This is a cheap alternative to the BMW 5-series. Does this sound like your Vauxhall Omega?
Vauxhall Omega History
As mentioned above, the first generation Omega A (1986-93) was branded as the Vauxhall Bedford in the UK and it was when the Omega B (1994-1999) was introduced that it was called the Vauxhall Omega in the UK.
The Omega B was a totally new design compared with its predecessor, and they had a whole new engine range available. These cars were known for their ‘no-frills’ looks but good performance and comfort. The Omega B FL (1999-2003) was to be the final version of this car produced and was more like an updated version of the Omega B. The changes made mainly affected the bonnet and lights for the exterior and the centre console for the interior. There was a new engine range added for this version as well.
These cars were very popular in the UK despite their bad reputation and criticism received. The Vauxhall Omega was discontinued in 2003 without a replacement.
The Vauxhall omega had some good engines available. The petrol engines on offer were: 2.0, 2.2, 2.5, 2.6, 3.0 and 3.2, and the diesel engines were 2.0, 2.2 and 2.5L. The most economical of the available engines was the 2.0 diesel which offered up to 40mpg. Which engine did you have for your Omega and how did it perform economically? Remember to consider fuel type, engine size and age of vehicle when determining fuel economy.
The different gearboxes available for this vehicle were the 5-speed manual and the 4 and 5 speed automatics. Which gearbox did your Vauxhall Omega have and how did it perform? Check out our Vauxhall gearbox section to find your omega gearbox parts.
