Why Lease A Vauxhall Insignia?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Insignia doesn’t have the biggest interior or the largest boot in its class, falling far short of the Skoda Superb. However, its large dimensions mean it’s still very spacious and practical. There’s space for 4 adults inside, with plenty of room for front passengers and a vast amount of rear legroom to stretch out. Rear headroom is slightly compromised for taller passengers, though, thanks to that stylish tapered roofline.
The boot measures in at 490 litres – a figure below the 550 litres offered by the Ford Mondeo or the 586 litres you get in a Volkswagen Passat. Nonetheless, the Insignia’s boot is still very usable, with the wide hatchback opening and rectangular boot floor making it easy to load large items. If you fold the rear seats down, storage space increases to 1540 litres.
Interior storage is decent for this type of car, with a good sized glovebox and large door bins. Another 2 storage cubbies are hidden in the centre console, which also hides a pair of cupholders – meaning most drivers will have enough space for their belongings.
The Insigina’s diesel engine line-up caters well for high mileage drivers – with a choice of a 1.5-litre engine or a more powerful 2.0-litre unit. Irrespective of which one you pick, Vauxhall claims both engines can produce identical fuel economy numbers, officially returning up to 61.4mpg when fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Specifying the 8-speed automatic box has a very minor impact on fuel consumption, falling to 56.5mpg. Drive carefully and you can expect to get close to these official figures.
If you’d prefer something with a little more pace, the 2.0-litre petrol engine manages respectable fuel consumption. It’s fitted with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, with the 200hp version officially managing up to 38.2mpg. The 230hp version is reserved for the sporty GSi model, which has 4-wheel drive and returns up to 33.6mpg.
The Vauxhall Insignia Vs Competitors
Vauxhall’s reputation for reliability has taken a hit in recent years, with low results for customer satisfaction. However, the latest Insignia shares several parts with the current Astra, so its engines and technology should be robust. Vauxhall offers a 3-year/60,000-mile warranty for peace of mind.
The Vauxhall Insignia hatchback has a 490-litre boot, expanding to 1540 litres when the rear seats are folded down.
A total of 5 trim levels are available, with the SE model being the entry point to the Insignia range. SRi Nav and SRi VX-Line Nav add sporty styling, while the Ultimate Nav trim adds copious luxury features. The sporty GSi model is the performance flagship of the line-up.
Every version of the Vauxhall Insignia has front and rear parking sensors fitted as standard.
The Insignia’s large dimensions means it offers a large interior space, with plenty of legroom for front and rear passengers. Rear headroom is slightly reduced due to its sharp roofline and the boot is average-sized for the class. Interior storage is strong, with large door bins and cubbies hidden in the centre console.
Thanks to regular updates, the Insignia has remained a very accomplished family car. It’s hugely practical, and has an excellent choice of engines, making it an excellent alternative to an SUV.
