Vauxhall Senator Overview

The Vauxhall Senator is classed as a full size luxury car which was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company Vauxhall Motors. Vauxhall Motors is the UK subsidiary of the German automobile manufacturing company Opel. This car was in production from 1978 to 1993 over two generations. This vehicle is marketed under several different names across the world, including: Daewoo Imperial and Chevrolet Senator. These cars are very spacious and comfortable. They are also good performers which were commonly used in the police force in the UK. They handle really well and are well equipped. They were known for their electrical problems. Does this sound anything like your experience of this car?


The first generation (1978-86) was sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Royale for the saloon version and the Vauxhall Royale Coupe for the fastback coupe version. This vehicle was originally a stretched version of the Vauxhall Rekord. In 1982 this vehicle had a facelift and was marketed as the Opel senator in the UK. In 1984 the Opel brand was phased out in the UK, and the Vauxhall Senator name was used for the first time. The second generation (1987-93) Senator was a stretched out Vauxhall Omega, and these cars were known for being extremely well equipped. In 1989 a 24V version was released, which became very popular in the UK Police force. In 1983 it was decided to discontinue the Senator as the new Omega planned for release in 1984 would cover the luxury class for Vauxhall.
