In life it’s easy to find yourself whinging from time to time, but not when looking at the equipment tally of a Vauxhall Insignia.
Even Design trim that kicks off the range still gets a decent amount of kit for the money. This includes auto lights, keyless entry and start, electric front and rear windows, air-con, cruise control, a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a multifunction steering wheel. We’d still pick the Design Nav model though, because the standard sat-nav is the kind of thing that buyers expect on this class of car.
Move up to SRi and you get 17in alloy wheels, front fog lights, tinted rear windows, auto wipers, a spoiler, dual-zone climate control, and rear USB sockets. SRi VX-Line get bigger wheels unless you have the 1.6 diesel, sportier bodystyling, a heated flat-bottom steering wheel, sat-nav and a 4.2in colour display in front of the driver.
Tech Line Nav models are the same price as SRi models with optional sat-nav but are less sporty. Over Design models, they get alloy wheels, auto wipers, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, rear USB sockets, lumbar adjustment and sat-nav.
Elite Nav is the top of the range, adding LED headlights, front fog lights, tinted rear windows, leather seats that are heated up front and a Bose stereo to Tech Line Nav. It’s also the only trim that is available with the 2.0-litre turbo petrol.
