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

This top trim comes with plenty of toys and the most powerful engine, as it should for the hefty asking price.

You get four-wheel drive as standard in the GSi only engine, but we haven’t tried it yet.
