Vauxhall took a while to offer a replacement for its workman-like, but capable off-roader, the Frontera and the Antara is it. Vauxhall's rival to the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV-4 hasn't been a popular site on UK roads since its launch in 2007.

Four years on and to no doubt increase interest, a face-lifted Anatara is on sale. To see how it compares with rivals, I spent a week with the 2.2 CDTi front-wheel drive Exclusiv, costing £19,995.
