Vauxhall cuts prices across new Insignia range
The new Vauxhall Insignia is available to order, with prices undercutting its predecessor by almost £4,000 on key fleet models.
Available as a five-door Grand Sport hatch and Sports Tourer estate, with a Country Tourer estate coming soon, the range is priced from £17,115 OTR for the hatch with the new 1.5-litre Turbo. For Sports Tourer customers, prices start from £18,615 OTR for the entry-level estate model.
The engine line-up also includes two versions of the 1.6-litre diesel engine; a 108bhp version which is priced from £18,485 and brings 70.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 105g/km, and the 134bhp version, which starts at £18,985, returns 65.7mpg and emits 114g/km.
These are offered across a familiar trim line-up including Design, Design Nav, SRi, SRi Nav, SRi VX-Line Nav, Tech Line Nav and Elite Nav versions. Prices for the fleet-tailored Design Nav and Tech Line Nav models are £3,205 and £3,980 lower than the outgoing car, when equipped with the 136hp diesel engine.
As a result, Vauxhall is claiming impressive BiK and whole-life cost savings compared to rivals. The Insignia Grand Sport Design Nav 1.6-litre Turbo D ecoTEC is said to save a company car driver up to £1,983 in BiK over a four-year/80,000-mile period against a Volkswagen Passat SE Business 118bhp 1.6-litre TDI and up to £1,358 over a Skoda Superb CR SE Technology 118bhp 1.6TDI.
The same Insignia Grand Sport Design Nav 1.6-litre Turbo D ecoTEC model also provides a whole-life cost saving of up to £5,691 versus a Volkswagen Passat SE Business 118bhp 1.6-litre TDI and up to £4,350 over a Ford Mondeo Zetec [Nav] 118bhp 1.5 TDCi ECOnetic.
