If you're interested in a secondhand version of the first generation Vauxhall Insignia, the post-2013 facelifted version is a much better bet. It was given smarter looks, a classier cabin, hi-tech features and a more efficient engine range, enhancing its already impressive CV for success in the medium range Mondeo sector. Find a good one and you'll get a great all-round volume D-segment family car.
By almost any measure you care to name, the first generation Insignia turned out to be a successful car for Vauxhall. Sales were crushingly superior to those of its Ford Mondeo arch-rival and continued to increase at a time when those of most other medium range sector models were struggling. The reasons why had to do with sharp pricing, smart styling and low running costs, the attributes that business buyers value most and the things that remain most attractive about this much improved facelifted first generation model.
At its launch, this car wasn't completely new - but it felt that way behind the wheel thanks to all the fresh cabin infotainment and the higher quality feel. Running costs were much better too, with the most frugal 2.0 CDTi units able to average over 75mpg and put out less than 100g/km of CO2.
This car doesn't have to be economy-focused of course. You could tackle a mountain trail in the Country Tourer version or take on the Nurburgring in the tarmac-burning VXR variant. But it's really built to satisfy typical families and temperate middle management folk. People who'll appreciate the comfortable ride and the thoughtful functionality. It's the kind of thing you'd expect from a brand that's been making four-seater family cars since 1903. Experience that really shows.
