The Vauxhall Insignia is available with a range of engines, making it easy for customers to select a specification that matches their specific requirements, whether they live in an urban environment and drive mainly around town or mainly use their car for longer journeys. The 2-litre petrol engine is a good choice for the open road, while there is also a larger engine available, in the form of a 2.8 litre V6, for drivers who want a little extra performance for extended motorway use.
The Vauxhall Insignia has a range of safety and security devices fitted as standard. For owners with families, the rear seatbelt indicator may be a useful option. All models in the range are fitted with the standard airbags and stability control found in most vehicles today. The anti-theft features have received high praise in the motoring press, while there is a greater than average flexibility in the options for headlight settings, which can cope with a range of different motoring conditions.
The 2-litre engines offer a great amount of power for all day to day driving conditions, whether in the city or on the open roads. There is sufficient acceleration and overtaking is easy, while stability, even at higher speeds is excellent. The V6 engine option adds a lot more power to the mix, ideal for people who are looking for a family car that still offers a sporty feel.
Although the V6 engine has a lot more kick, in terms of acceleration, it also makes the car more expensive to run, as fuel consumption is greater and emissions go up. This is a trade-off that some people may choose to make, but for others, the smaller engines are reliable performers with solid fuel economy and competitive emissions ratings. For example, the 2-litre diesel engine achieves 48 mpg, overall.
The Vauxhall Insignia has become the medium-size saloon car of choice in the Vauxhall range and the bodywork styling reflects all that we have come to expect from this manufacturer. The design features a sloping roofline that while looking sporty does not restrict the interior passenger space.
With its generous luggage space and easy to use controls, the Vauxhall Insignia is a solid choice for a family car, especially when children and long distance driving are involved. It is comfortable on both motorways and secondary roads, providing a smooth ride on a wide range of surfaces.
