About the Vauxhall Insignia

The Vauxhall Insignia first launched in 2008 and has seen many successful facelifts since then.

This is a spacious family car that can easily seat up to five people with enough space for luggage in the boot.

It's also good to drive and economical to run – which is more important than ever.  

However, this vehicle isn’t just aimed at families, and is also well suited to working professionals looking for a solid executive vehicle to commute in.

Another of the Insignia's attractive features is its spacious boot, which extends into extra cabin storage space in the cockpit.  

Is the Vauxhall Insignia reliable?

Much like other Vauxhall models, the Insignia features tried and tested components that are easy to replace should they fail.

The Insignia boasts many features to ensure the safety of its passengers. Some of these latest technologies include forward collision with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection to ensure the safety of those inside and outside the vehicle.  

Other features include lane keep assist, blind spot alert, adaptive cruise control, and advanced park assist.

On top of that, the Insignia scored five stars for crash safety following its Euro NCAP testing, with strong scores in every category.  

It scored 93% for adult protection, which is very impressive and a mighty 78% for pedestrian safety. 

What are the Vauxhall Insignia features?

What’s good about the Vauxhall Insignia is that you don’t need to spend the big bucks to get a solid set of features.

The entry-level Insignia SE is well equipped and comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, climate control and mobile phone connectivity, along with a 7-inch infotainment system complete with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.  

Some of the higher specification model variants come with heated steering wheels, heated seats and a sunroof.

Vauxhall is always working on improving the Insignia, and one of the main elements it has excelled in is ride quality.  

The Insignia is smooth at lower speeds and remains composed when at higher speeds. Even on the motorway, the Insignia is smooth, quiet and most importantly, very economical.

What is the Vauxhall Insignia like to drive?

For an everyday family vehicle or executive saloon, the Vauxhall Insignia produces some decent poke. It comes with both petrol and diesel engine options, coming in at 197hp and 120hp respectively.  

As expected, the petrol-powered version offers more power and greater acceleration, whereas the diesel option returns better fuel economy on longer drives.

The average fuel range readings for both models are between 40mpg and 56.5mpg depending on engine type and transmission option (the six-speed manual cars offer greater quoted fuel efficiency figure).  

This is very impressive considering the size and weight of the Insignia, making it the perfect mile-muncher or school drop-off vehicle.
