Review

The Vauxhall Insignia doesn’t excel in any particular area, but stick to the lower trim levels and it’s not a lot of money compared to other executive cars. Avoid the petrol models and it should prove cheap to run, although there’s no tax-busting plug-in hybrid model. Just remember that rivals are better to drive and even more practical.

get the best price

SRi Nav is worth considering for passenger lumbar support, 40/20/40 split folding rear seats, a rear armrest and the option of the 2.0 Turbo D engine.

The cheapest engine in the range is this 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel. It’s pretty frugal and has competitive CO2 emissions, but its performance and refinement disappoint.
