Vauxhall Insignia

(2017 - present)

The Vauxhall Insignia is a large family/executive car sold in both liftback (Insignia Grand Sport) and estate (Insignia Sports Tourer) body styles.

The current generation model was introduced in 2017, with a higher-riding Country Tourer estate version added a few months later and the GSi performance model a few months after that. The Insignia is sold in other countries as the Opel Insignia, Buick Regal and Holden Commodore.

As of November 2019, the Insignia has the same score as its arch rival, the Ford Mondeo, according to our Expert Rating aggregatror, based on more than 40 different UK reviews. That’s a reasonable score but well behind the class-leading Volkswagen Passat.

The Vauxhall Insignia has received particular praise for its comfort, interior space and value for money. However, it has been criticised for not matching the levels of quality or fuel economy on offer from several rivals.
