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 or has been sold in other countries as the Opel Insignia, Buick Regal and Holden Commodore.

A facelifted arrived in UK showrooms in early 2020. As part of this upgrade, the slow-selling estate (Sports Tourer) and Country Tourer models were dropped from the range, leaving only the liftback models on sale.

As of February 2021, the Insignia has an Expert Rating of 71% based on 47 UK reviews, which is a reasonable score compared to lower-priced vehicles 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.
