Signum Gets A Green Thumbs-Up
carpages.co.uk

Vauxhall's Signum fitted with the new 2.2 direct injection petrol engine is the most environmentally friendly petrol car, according to this year's European ADAC/FIA Foundation Eco Test.

With 79 points, the Signum 2.2 Direct topped the family car section of this year's results.

The EcoTest is designed to provide a fair and meaningful assessment of the environmental performance and impact of cars. The tests are based on those developed for emissions legislation in Europe and then extended to cover a wide range of real driving situations.

The EcoTest, which was carried out by the ADAC on behalf of the FIA Foundation, tested 113 vehicles in the mini, small, compact, mid-size cars, upper mid-size and luxury car segments. The highest possible rating was 90 points or five stars; both Signum and Vectra earned four stars each. The Corsa ECO was awarded five stars in 2003.
