Wales football manager Chris Coleman

Wales manager Chris Coleman is the latest footballing addition to the Vauxhall driving family.


Coleman was presented with a brand new Vauxhall Insignia at Evans Halshaw in Cardiff last week where he announced his squad for Wales’ UEFA European Championship campaign opener against Andorra.


The former Wales international will be hoping to lead his team, including Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey, to their first major finals since 1958.


Coleman, who took part in a Google+ Hangout with the four Home Nations Managers and Vauxhall recently, said: "I am delighted to be driving the Vauxhall Insignia.”


"I am very grateful for the support that Vauxhall has given me and the national team since I became Wales manager in 2012 and look forward to working with them in the future."

Peter Hope, Vauxhall’s Marketing Director added: “We are thrilled that Chris has decided to drive a Vauxhall Insignia.”


"We're three years into our partnership with the Wales team and the relationship continues to grow. We’re looking forward to Euro 2016 and giving our support as Wales begin their journey on the road to France.”


"We would also like to thank Chris for his excellent support, as well as his players, coaching staff and everyone connected with the Wales team."


Coleman’s new Vauxhall wheels are an Insignia Sports Tourer 2.0 CDTi (163PS) in Tech Line trim. This extremely well-equipped model gets lots of handy kit as standard, including a Navi 900 IntelliLink sat-nav system with touch-screen and touch-pad control, 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, automatic lighting control with tunnel detection and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers.
