Vauxhall Insigina and while you might struggle to spot the differences from the outside, but you’ll certainly notice the new prices. And when you open the door there’s a big difference inside, too.
When the new car arrives in October, most models will cost thousands
less than their equivalent predecessors, with the £16,279 entry-level
car priced £1,771 lower than before.
Running costs have been slashed, too. The arrival of two diesels
emitting only 99g/km of CO2 is big news for company car users. As our
table shows, they’ll bring lower tax bills and claimed average economy
of 76.3mpg will also reduce fuel bills.
There are two new petrol engines – a 1.6 and a 2.0-litre, the latter
being available with four-wheel drive. In addition to low-CO2 118bhp and
138bhp 2.0-litre diesels, there’s a 161bhp version of the same engine
that emits 114g/km.
The confusing plethora of buttons and knobs inside the car has been
replaced with a cleaner look and optional (£350) eight-inch touchscreen
system that can use apps downloaded to your phone.
Vauxhall’s chairman and managing director Duncan Aldred told Auto
Express: “We’ve reacted to criticism of the number of dash buttons with a
cleaner, more upmarket look, and added our IntelliLink touchscreen with
full iPhone Siri voice integration.”
A new customisable eight-inch display in the instrument binnacle can
also be added, although every model gets revised dials. Better-quality
materials, new colour schemes and a new steering wheel complete the
The Insignia has never been the finest-riding car in its class, so
chassis tweaks are aimed at boosting comfort and fun. The electric
power-steering has been reprogrammed for greater feel, while levels of
refinement are said to have been improved, too. For more details click here.
