Explore your enthusiasm for creativity.
A smart new look, yet still complete with flowing curves and perfect
proportions – New Antara has an even more expressive yet rugged
style about it. Compact, sophisticated, yet tough, dynamic and now,
more than ever, ready for an active life. Imposing alloy wheels, roof
rails and protective skid plates. Be inspired by your New Antara –
wherever your drive takes you.
Explore your passion for the finer things in life.
The New Antara interior is full of light and space, with high quality trims, premium finishes
and top-of-the-range levels of equipment. Leather trim, electronic climate control, satellite
navigation, MP3 format and heated front seats are all available. The new electric parking
brake function also frees up space for even more storage. And a high driving position gives
you confidence, control and a great view of the road ahead.
Automatic transmission. Rare for this class, a six-speed
ActiveSelect® automatic transmission is available (at extra cost).
Electronically controlled features include an adaptive driving function
plus a new eco mode that maximises use of higher gears for improved
fuel economy – which in combination with the new 2.2CDTi unit means
almost a 10% improvement over previous automatic models.
Front-wheel drive. New to the Antara range is a conventional front-wheel drive
system. Available on Exclusiv models only and mated to the 163PS version of the new
2.2CDTi 16v it offers the perfect choice for those who are looking for more affordable
Antara motoring and the associated maximum fuel economy benefits.
Six-speed manual transmission. Antara’s new multi-valve petrol
and diesel engines come with a slick but sturdy new six-speed manual
gearbox as standard. The new manual front-wheel drive diesel
model achieves an impressive 46.3mpg on the combined cycle.
Start/Stop technology. New to the Antara range and available on both FWD and
4X4 2.2CDTi 16v manual diesel models, the innovative Start/Stop system switches the
engine off when you stop at the lights or in traffic, then restarts it automatically once
the clutch is depressed. A huge range of built-in checks ensures passenger and vehicle
safety at all times, of course. Engine stop is indicated by the rev counter needle in the
Intelligent four-wheel drive. The electronically controlled Antara system switches
automatically between two- and four-wheel drive as conditions demand. In normal
driving, power goes to the front wheels only, saving fuel at the same time. And when
conditions turn difficult or slippery, four-wheel drive is automatically engaged,
switching the drive as required to the front and rear wheels for optimum traction.
New 2.4i 16v petrol engine. New to the Antara range this efficient multi-valve fourcylinder petrol engine develops 167PS and is available on Exclusiv FWD models only.
New efficient 2.2CDTi 16v diesel. Available in two versions – a 163PS unit with
350Nm of torque on Exclusiv and SE Nav models and on SE Nav models only, a 184PS
variant with an equally impressive 400Nm of torque. Not only is this latest engine
more powerful than the previous unit, it is both quieter and smoother and offers up to
15% better fuel economy with manual transmission. In addition CO2 emissions are
vastly improved – the new front-wheel drive model achieves 160g/km.
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Diesel Particulate Filters provide an effective
means of reducing particulate emissions into the atmosphere. The maintenance-free
Antara unit can cut the output of harmful emissions by over 90%. That’s why it’s
Electronic Stability Programme (ESP). Antara benefits from a
unique interaction between switchable ESP, Traction Control (TC)
and Descent Control System (DCS), all working together with the
ABS system and on 4X4 models, intelligent four-wheel drive to
deliver high degrees of driving satisfaction, comfort and active
safety. If a wet roundabout or muddy corner catches you out, ESP
applies corrective braking to help you regain control. TC helps
maintain traction under acceleration. The ESP system fitted to the
Antara also includes a trailer stability program and Hill Start Assist
(HSA) that eases starting and eliminates roll-back on gradients.
Descent Control System. DCS enhances driver control on slippery
slopes by maintaining a constant incline descent speed. Fitted as
standard equipment, it allows drivers to make potentially tricky
descents far more comfortably and at safer, constant speed.
Visit the Vauxhall website: www.vauxhall.co.uk for more explanation of ESP, DCS and intelligent four-wheel drive.
Safety features. Antara protects you in
so many ways. Front, side and full-size
curtain airbags are standard, along
with pyrotechnic body-lock seatbelt
pretensioners for the front and outer
rear seats. Adaptive brake lights flash
when the ABS braking is activated.
Dual front seatbelt pretensioners.
Working in tandem with the built-in front
seat ramps they help to minimise the
forward movement of the body during
emergency braking. They also help enhance
the effectiveness of the front airbags.
Tyre pressure monitoring system.
Antara SE Nav models permanently
monitor individual tyre pressures using
sensors located on the tyre valves,
displaying the information on the screen.
If a significant pressure loss is detected,
the display identifies the offending tyre.
Front lights. For safer winter driving, front fog lights are standard on every model,
recessed into the lower valance. Xenon headlights, with dynamic beam levelling
and high-pressure washers, are standard on Antara SE Nav models. Our clever
door-to-door illumination feature keeps the dipped headlights and rear lights on for
30 seconds to light your way as you leave the car.
Passenger airbag deactivation.
The front passenger’s airbag can be
deactivated when a child seat is fitted.
Parking distance sensors. Standard
on all 4X4 models, this clever Vauxhall
system helps safeguard your car when
parking. Sensors in the bumpers provide
an audible warning when they sense an
object behind – or in front of – the vehicle,
making it altogether easier to park.
Security features. Remote control
central deadlocking, ultrasonic security
alarm system and an electronic engine
deadlock immobiliser are standard.
Safety and security
Electric parking brake. The electric
parking brake is easy to apply and also
has an automatic release function to
ease driving off on slopes.
Get connected. And stay connected on the move with the Touch and Connect touchscreen navigation system complete with USB connection and Bluetooth® technology.
Standard on SE Nav models, this sophisticated system packs all the latest technology.
• Five-inch touch-screen colour display and steering wheel control for easy,
• Dynamic navigation with bird’s eye view map
• Navigation data for 28 European countries on SD card
• CD/MP3 CD player
• Aux-in socket and USB connection with full control and browsing capability for
portable MP3 players

detailed track information on display

Sensing features. The Antara driver
environment is packed with clever ideas
helping you concentrate on the road
ahead. On SE Nav activate the rainsensitive wipers and they’ll switch on
automatically when it rains. Automatic
lighting control does the same for the
headlights when it starts to get dark.
Seating position. You don’t just sit high
up in Antara. You relax in total comfort,
thanks to driver’s seat height, tilt and
lumbar adjustment, plus a reach and
rake adjustable steering column. Both
models feature heated front seats – with
three separate heat settings as standard.
CD 30 MP3 CD player. Standard on
Exclusiv models, this unit plays MP3 tracks
from CD. Antara models have seven
speakers and steering wheel mounted
audio controls. There’s also an aux-in
socket so you can play favourite tracks
direct from your personal MP3 player.
Cruise control. Standard on all 4X4
models, the easy-to-use cruise control
system allows you to maintain a steady
speed without keeping your foot on the
throttle. So it’s more comfortable on
long journeys and easier to keep to
speed limits too.
Leather trim. Antara SE Nav models
feature stylish leather seat trim in
Charcoal, Saddle Brown or a new Light
Titanium finish to suit your exterior
colour. It’s complemented by contrasting
trim on the facia and doors, adding to
the upmarket feel.
Front centre armrest. The centre
console includes a comfortable armrest.
Open the lid and you’ll find more storage
space for loose items like sweets, coins,
CDs and other personal effects.
Heat-reflective windscreen. The SE
Nav features a multi-layered coating
inside the windscreen which reflects the
sun’s heat, helping the electronic climate
control maintain a pleasant – and
constant – temperature inside the car.
Air conditioning and ECC. Standard on
Antara Exclusiv, air conditioning makes
for a fresher interior atmosphere all
year round. SE Nav models move up to
Electronic Climate Control enabling you
to maintain the interior temperature to
within a single degree. All models
feature rear heater ducts.
Front floor console. The electric parking
brake has freed useful space for the centre
console. On Exclusiv and SE Nav models,
the new centre floor console contains
two drinks holders and a convenient
open storage compartment. The armrest
opens to reveal capacious storage for
journey needs and personal items.
Rear drinks holders. Mounted in the
rear seat centre armrest, the two drinks
holders are the perfect place for en-route
refreshments and typical of Antara’s
attention to rear passenger comfort.
The armrest also features a useful
Heated front seats. On both models,
heating elements in the seat backs and
cushions enable the front seats to reach
a comfortable temperature in a very
short time. There are three separate
Spacious load area. Open the tailgate.
Enjoy the space. An incredible 1420 litres
of loadspace to be exact – with the rear
seats folded forward. Even with all
five seats in use, and the luggage
compartment cover in place, a 928mm
long floor length translates to as much
as 420 litres of loadspace – easily enough
for several large suitcases. If you need
room for longer luggage, the rear seat
back is 60/40 split-folding, so you can
carry what you need and still have room
for rear seat passengers.
Fold-flat front passenger’s seat.
The fold-flat facility for the front
passenger’s seat on SE Nav models
allows the seat back to fold forward to
accommodate extra-long items.
Practical stowage. Antara has plenty of
clever storage space. In the front you’ll
find door pockets, drinks holders, a
sunglasses storage pocket (SE Nav only),
passenger seat undertray and storage
in the front centre armrest. There are
drinks holders and front seat back
storage pockets for rear passengers too.
Roof rails. Antara’s stylish silver-effect
integral roof rails don’t just look good.
They’re the perfect starting point for the
Vauxhall roof rack system. Attach the
accessory base carrier and it’s ready for
a wide range of lockable travel boxes and
other specialist fittings for skis and more.
60/40 split-folding rear seat. Antara
models feature a 60/40 split-folding rear
seat with adjustable backrest. Tilted
