For The Vauxhall Insignia looks stylish and has a smart cabin, and some of the diesel engines are very efficient.

Against Refinement is awful, and the best rivals are more practical and more enjoyable to drive.

Vauxhall Insignia Hatchback
33 5stars

The Vauxhall Insignia is excellent value as a company car, but it falls short of the class leaders in other areas.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Speccing your Insignia could take some time because there are dozens of versions to choose from.

The trims include Energy, SRi, SRi VX-Line and Elite, but we’d recommend the entry-level Design model or the better equipped and still affordable Tech Line.

There are also nine engines, including some low-CO2 Ecoflex units that make a lot of sense if you’re a company car driver. Vauxhall even offers four-wheel-drive models, although these are hideously expensive.

Like all Vauxhalls, the Insignia comes with a 100,000-mile, unlimited-period warranty. However, owners do have to visit a Vauxhall dealer for a free inspection once a year to maintain the cover, and it isn’t transferable when you sell the car.
