The Vauxhall Insignia has always been popular with company car drivers and fleet managers, and the 2013 version looks set to improve its business proposition.

Vauxhall has lowered CO2 emissions to 99g/km on two engines, improved equipment levels on all models and slashed prices by up to 4825.

The Insignia's refresh also brings a change in trims, with ES and Exclusiv replaced by a single Design trim. All models now come with LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloys, Bluetooth and DAB radio as standard.

Vauxhall's reduction of the Insignia's list price means a drop in the P11D value, which will result in company car drivers paying less benefit in kind (BIK) tax.

The cut in CO2 emissions will also add to savings in BIK payments. The 2.0-litre CDTi Ecoflex is available in 118bhp and 138bhp variants. These core fleet models both emit just 99g/km of CO2, which is down from the outgoing 128bhp engine's 112g/km.

This brings a drop of three BIK tax bands, cutting the driver's contribution from 17% to 14%.

For example, a 2.0 CDTi 120 Ecoflex Design with a P11D value of 18,690 will cost a 40% taxpayer 87.22 a month in BIK tax, whereas the outgoing 22,195 2.0 CDTi 130 Ecoflex Exclusiv would incur a 125.77 monthly bill.
