Vauxhall Insignia

The Vauxhall Insignia has become a favourite among company cars, thanks to its great fuel efficiency and good performance. There are hatchback, sport and saloon options to choose between, and a dizzying array of engine options. But what are the standout characteristics of this range? Here's a brief look at what you can expect from this vehicle on the road.

Driving experience

Having driven the 138 bhp Ecoflex diesel option of a Vauxhall Insignia hatchback, we found the car to offer a great mid-range performance. It's not necessary to over-rev the engine to feel like you're making progress, and it's also great for fuel economy, so that makes it a natural choice if you're engaged in regular long-distance journeys. With our 16 inch wheel Insignia, we found the steering to be responsive and the driving to be smooth and pleasant, so all in all a good feel.

Other features

The Insignia range offers great safety and security, with six airbags and stability control features, as well as a five star rating in resisting drive away theft. All of the interior features and instruments feel solid and built to last. You can also get digital instruments, although the analogue displays work perfectly fine, and show up well at night.
