How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Insignia hatchback?
The majority of engines used in the Insignia Grand Sport range are quite economical, particularly if you go for the smallest petrol or diesel units.
On the petrol side, the 1.5T manages a combined fuel economy figure of 47.9mpg or 47.1mpg if you are looking at the more powerful option. Since the difference is so small, you may as well go for the 163bhp version. The 256bhp 2.0-litre petrol is only available in Elite and GSi trims with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. All this does hurt overall fuel economy, which is rather low at an average 32.8mpg.
The diesels are best if you cover lots of miles. The 109bhp 1.6-litre diesel is the most frugal at a claimed 70.6mpg, with the more powerful 134bhp version coming in at 65.7mpg.
The larger 2.0-litre diesel is a little disappointing when compared with its rivals in relation to fuel economy. The 168bhp manual has a claimed 54.3mpg, with the automatic version bringing it down to 51.4mpg. The top diesel is the twin-turbo 207bhp engine that comes equipped with four-wheel drive and an auto gearbox, knocking the figure down to 40.9mpg.
Due to the changes brought in from 1 April 2017, every Insignia Grand Sport will cost you £140 per year in road tax.
The Insignia Grand Sport is too young to qualify for fixed-price servicing, but Vauxhall maintenance costs aren’t known for being particularly costly, so you shouldn’t have any worries here. Insurance costs should be reasonable due to the safety kit fitted as standard.
