The Vauxhall Insignia is impressive as either a hatchback or saloon to be an excellent mid-sized family car worth considering. The Insignia is a great value-for-money offering.
As a major bestseller, there's a wide range of engine choices for the Vauxhall Insignia though the 2.0 litre diesel offers the best levels of performance. It's a strong performer at speed on motorways and delivers good performance at low revs. The 2.0 litre CDTi EcoFlex model also delivers power with power outputs ranging from 118 bhp to 138 bhp and potential economy of 76 mpg with emissions of 99g/km. The 1.6 litre diesel engine is also worth a closer look and while the petrol engines deliver more power they are not as frugal.
In a competitive segment, it should come as no surprise that there's lots of equipment on the Vauxhall Insignia including Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and climate control. There's also cruise control and automatic lights and the Insignia is available as either a hatchback, saloon or the Tourer - which is the estate version.
Potential owners should not confuse the Insignia with its predecessor, the unloved Vectra, since this model is built on a new platform and is a big seller around the world; it's very much a different car. Indeed, the car is solid and stable when driven at speed and there's plenty of grip when on country roads; the driving position is comfortable and the suspension delivers a smooth ride.
In addition to its low running costs, the Vauxhall Insignia has a redesigned interior that's impressive and able to take lots of heavy use. It's also a pleasant place to be for long journeys and the dashboard is also well designed. The infotainment system delivers lots of connectivity and there is also the firm's OnStar system which enables the car to contact the emergency services automatically in an accident along with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Essentially, the Vauxhall Insignia ticks lots of boxes for those, particularly families, who are looking for a comfortable and spacious car that's great for cruising long distances and performs nicely around town; there's lots of equipment and the handling is excellent.
