Updated Vauxhall Insignia starts at £23k

► 2020’s Vauxhall Insignia
► New engines and LED tech
► Arriving in summer from £23,120

Vauxhall has given its Insignia exec hatch a nip and tuck, with fresh new engines and more tech, too.

The new exec hatch will go on sale in the summer.

Insignia’s engines and specs

It wouldn’t be a Vauxhall without a baffling number of trim variants and engine configurations. There are five trims: SE Nav, SRi Nav, SRi VX-Line Nav, Ultimate Nav and GSi.

Engines vary from a base-spec 1.4-litre turbo making 143bhp and a 2.0-litre turbo making 198 and 227bhp (with the lattermost reserved for the GSI), to two diesels – a 1.5 making 121bhp and a 2.0-litre making 172bhp. Gearbox choices come in the shape of a six-speed manual, CVT or an automatic with either eight or nine speeds. If we explained how these configurations partnered up with the trims, we’d be here all week.

Every model has a seven-inch touschreen navigation system, cruise, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, traffic sign recognition and lane departure – to name but a few details. The higher up the trim range you go, you’ll be treated to kit like the brand’s rather good IntelliLux LED headlights, larger infotainment screens, adaptive dampers and digital instruments.

When can I buy one?

Vauxhall says it’ll hit dealers in summer, starting from £23,120 for a basic one and topping out at a lofty £38,850 for the GSi.
