"The Vauxhall Insignia has been given a major makeover that centres on greater in-car refinement, much-reduced running costs for company drivers and list price cuts of £3,500 to £5,000"
“Once you’re under way the engine noise seems to melt away and the engine [2.0CDTi 170PS] becomes as refined as any on the market. Better still, its torque spread is impressive.”
"Vauxhall has pulled the wraps off its new upper medium Insignia, which is tipped to give it the edge over class rivals within the core Company Car market"
"We ran cost comparisons against key upper medium rivals, none of which could touch the Insignia on price or running costs. Insignia trounces rivals on costs and sustainability for business users."
“Class-leading running costs combine with the fleet-friendly Tech Line trim, which offers the latest technology so drivers don’t have to fork out for options”
“2014’s facelift reduced CO2 from 112g/km to 98g/km, putting it at the top of the class”
“On the road, the new engine’s (2.0CDTi 170PS) refinement claims are vindicated. It’s certainly eliminated that more commercial vehicle –like clatter, an improvement that continues under acceleration in particular, where the refinement has taken the Insignia from one end of the class up towards the other. ”
Business Car Manager
"If you want to slash your Company Car Tax bill, check out Vauxhall's new Insignia."
"You’ll certainly notice the new prices. And when you open the door there’s a big difference inside, too."
"...cabin quality and driving comfort...emulating those of executive cars that are far more expensive."
"...tax costs are low, and if you go for Design specification, you'll get useful equipment such as cruise control, DAB radio and electric lumbar adjustment to help soothe you during those long motorway trips."
"The Passat is still a strong contender, despite its age, but the surprise here is how the Insignia comes top in so many categories. The Volkswagen might have more luggage space, but the Insignia's case is compelling.
Winner: Vauxhall Insignia."
"The all-new interior is a major step forward for quality in how it looks and feels."
"It's modern, uncluttered design is up there with the best, while it remains as roomy and comfortable as its predecessor."
“The new engine [2.0CDTi 170PS] shows its credentials with a generally subdued demeanour. Particularly hushed on idle, it is a full five decibels quieter and can easily be mistaken for a petrol unit.”
International Fleet World
International Fleet World (IFW) Magazine decided to try and drive an Insignia 2.0CDTi (120PS) from Vauxhall HQ in Luton to the European HQ in Russelsheim (Germany), and back again on one tank of fuel! A round trip of nearly 1000 miles. Despite 90 minutes of grid locked traffic in Belgium and strong head winds in France; this is how they got on….
“Nobody can drive 990 miles from the UK to Germany and back on one tank of fuel, can they? IFW sent Alex Grant across Europe in the refreshed Insignia.”
“It had breezed it. With two adults, 30kg of photography gear, a headwind and Brussels traffic against us, the Insignia had not only got us back to Luton with range to spare, but it had made it look easy. We’d averaged 68 mpg over 986 miles, enough to cover an incredible 1045 miles on one tank of diesel…,”
Sunday Mirror, Quentin Willson
"Vauxhall has made its already excellent Insignia more refined and cheaper too"
"We'd like to point out that it's actually not a new Vauxhall Insignia, more a facelift... Doesn't it look smart? We've long maintained that Vauxhall is now churning out some good looking cars, and this new 'Sig is no exception"
"There are big changes afoot under the bonnet and in the cabin. It's also cheaper than the outgoing model"
