Updated Vauxhall Insignia faces £3000 price hike

Published 07 April 2020

The Vauxhall Insignia has moved upmarket to compete with the likes of the Skoda Superb and Mazda 6, with prices starting from £23,120. Orders are now open and deliveries are expected from this summer.

The most affordable Insignia is an SE Nav with the three-cylinder 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine and six-speed manual gearbox. This is well-equipped for the money, with standard equipment including a seven-inch navigation system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, front and rear parking sensors and alloy wheels.

Previously, the Insignia was available in a more basic Design trim with a 1.5-litre petrol engine from £20,045 - however the range has been streamlined to reflect a drop in sales caused by the shift towards SUVs. This has also led to the Sports Tourer estate model being taken off sale.

As well as the entry-level SE Nav model, trim levels include SRi Nav, SRi VX-Line Nav and Ultimate Nav. Engine choices include the aforementioned 1.4-litre three-cylinder petrol as well as a 2.0-litre petrol and 1.5- and 2.0-litre turbodiesels.

Topping the range is the sporty Insignia GSi model, priced from £38,850. This pairs a 230PS 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with four-wheel-drive and a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

Updates for the 2021 model year Insignia include new LED headlights, comprising 84 LED bulbs which automatically switch between dipped and main beam during night driving.

There's also a new rear-view camera while an optional rear cross traffic alert system will notify the driver of approaching traffic when reversing out of a parking space.

Dealers are now taking orders for the updated Vauxhall Insignia while deliveries are expected from summer - coronavirus delays permitting.

Another example of the greed of PSA

Sales are down due to customers preferring SUVs, so increasing the price by 3k will increase sales? Ford are ending the Mondeo, there's no big 4 door Citroens, and the Insigniaificant isn't selling. The reason? It doesn't wear a BMW, Audi or Merc badge. That's were company car money is going, the promise of solid build quality, badge snobbery and decent resale values.

People may be driving BMW etc but all it says is this car isn't mine its a company car.

I'm afraid after having five German (company) cars the build quality is a myth. (I do 40,000 miles a year)

Impressively large and consistent bills though.
