ENGINES AND PERFORMANCE FOR THE VAUXHALL INSIGNIA
There's a good choice of powertrains available for the impressive new Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport including a new 1.5 litre turbocharged petrol engine. The diesels include a 1.6 litre turbocharged unit and a 2.0 litre diesel unit producing 170 HP which features in the range topping guise which is packed with equipment so will probably be the most popular choice. The engine should return around 54 mpg with emissions of 139g/km. Of the petrol engines, the new 1.5 litre turbo petrol unit impresses with a 140 HP output with the range topper being a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit producing 260 HP. All of the engines deliver power and performance.
EQUIPMENT AND HANDLING
The popular Vauxhall Insignia has now been replaced by the Grand Sport and the Sports Tourer; both are excellent vehicles with lots of equipment and impressive levels of handling.
While the Sports Tourer is the estate version, the five door Grand Sport hatchback offers plenty of space on board for occupants and Vauxhall is promising a more rugged Country Tourer estate in the near future.
Indeed, the new model makes a sound choice for a driver of a company car with a promise that the Insignia Grand Sport Design Nav 1.6 litre Turbo D will save the driver nearly £2,000 in benefit-in-kind tax over the four-year or 80,000 miles of ownership period compared with competitors.
There's no doubt the new model is very attractive with head turning styling and features equipment including automatic lighting control, keyless entry and start along with air conditioning, cruise control as well as steering wheel controls. There's also the firm's IntelliLink audio system which features a 7-inch colour touchscreen as well as Bluetooth connectivity and connection for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport is a great creation and will offer a sound alternative for what is a competitive sector and with its stylish good looks and equipment levels, it is going to be a popular choice.
