Like the previous model it is based on the General Motors Epsilon platform, also shared by the Vauxhall Vectra, and is available as a 4-door Saloon, 5-door Estate, or 2-door Convertible. The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components, so that their layout can be understood. Then the tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence.
