Vauxhall's Antara won't be the first car that springs to mind if you're looking for a decent, stylish and practical 5-seat SUV from the 2011 to 2015 era, something more capable than a Ford Kuga but less extreme than a Land Rover Freelander. But if that is your buying brief, the heavily revised version of this model that appeared in 2011 could be worth considering.
All of which perhaps leaves only the question of what exactly the word 'Antara' actually means. Apparently, it's either the equivalent of a verse in Hindustani classical music or a prescription drug designed to lower cholesterol: take your pick. Although this Vauxhall can't guarantee to combat the effects of an artery-clogging fry-up, it at least encourages a rather more active lifestyle. No, it isn't the most capable nor the most innovative 4x4 on the market from this era but what it does offer is neat styling, tried and tested engines and a relatively affordable price tag.
In buying a used Antara though, you'll need to tread carefully, there being a number of rogue examples about. Find yourself a good one though and you might feel you've got yourself quite a complete package.
