Insignia lower BiK taxation

INSIGNIA: MORE ECONOMY, LESS TAXATION

With CO2 emissions starting at just 114g/km (together with yet further improved fuel economy) for ecoFLEX Start/Stop models, Insignia’s enhanced 2.0CDTi 16v 130PS and 160PS engines offer significant tax advantages over rival vehicles. Competitive PIID values allied to excellent performance and economy further increase their appeal.

 

But it’s not just the ecoFLEX engines that have lower emissions/improved economy: as revealed in the consumption and CO2 table below, various other models with 2.0 litre diesel and the 1.4 litre Turbo petrol engines enjoy reduced emissions, each dropping a band in BiK taxation. Further, emissions for the 1.8 litre petrol engine have been cut from 179g/km to 169g/km – representing a 2% BiK saving*.

 

As a practical example of the tax savings that can be enjoyed by an Insignia Company Car Driver, compare the BiK costs of two leading vehicles aimed directly at the Fleet market:
