2020 Vauxhall Insignia revealed

Published 03 December 2019

Vauxhall is injecting new life into the Insignia with LED headlights and improved driver tech. The Ford Mondeo rival will go on sale in early-2020 and be priced in the region of £21,000.

The 2020 updates for the Vauxhall Insignia are designed to improve its appeal with company car drivers and fleet buyers, with the headline change being the introduction of the all-new IntelliLux LED headlight system.

The headlights use 84 LED elements - 68 more than before - and a camera to detect oncoming vehicles and automatically switch between dipped and main beam during night-time driving. The Insignia's daytime running lights - also LED - have been redesigned and are now positioned at the bottom, instead of the top, of the headlight unit. 

Driver tech has been improved, with buyers getting the option of a new rear-view camera that now includes rear cross traffic alerts, which uses radar to warn the driver of approaching vehicles up to 20 metres away, when reversing out of a driveway or parking space. The 2020 Insignia also gets the option lane keep assist, side blind spot alerts and adaptive cruise control. 

Vauxhall says it has given the Insignia a 'bold new design', although the official images imply theses are limited to a new headlight design, updated grille and new housings for the front fog lights.

There are no details about engines or running costs, but the facelifted Insignia is expected to be offered with the familiar 1.6 and 2.0 CDTi diesels and 1.5 turbo petrol with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Power outputs will most-likely range from 110 - 210PS for the diesels and 140 - 160PS for the petrols.
