2023 Vauxhall Insignia
The 2023 Vauxhall Insignia or 2023 Opel Insignia is a large family car developed and produced by the German automaker Opel. The Vauxhall Insignia is a mid-size family car that can be ordered as a sedan or hatchback. Insignia’s closest competitors are Ford Mondeo, Volkswagen Passat, and Skoda Superb. The standard 7.0-inch touchscreen interface for phone and infotainment is also quite small, with the fancier models getting a little bigger and lagging behind the latest widescreens on some competitors.
However, the market for these cars is shrinking. As more people flock to SUVs and premium cars like the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4, it leaves Insignia with few direct competitors. One is the Skoda Superb, which is a tough competitor and one of our favorite family cars, but the Opel is a close match for a family interior for quality and practicality.
2023 Vauxhall Insignia : Interior
The Insignia’s interior is a big step forward compared to the old Vectra. The Insignia’s interior is best described as functional compared to the sleeker, sleeker-looking cabins of competitors like the Peugeot 508 or Audi A4. Material quality and overall layout have been greatly improved, but it still lags behind the Volkswagen Passat and passenger space is not as generous as you might expect. The Insignia is a very capable highway cruiser. The ride absorbs bumps and imperfections nicely, and almost no noise quickly enters the cabin.
The trim levels are good, and every Insignia comes with climate control, DAB digital radio with Bluetooth phone connectivity, automatic lights, and cruise control. See the paint colors available for the Opel Insignia and check if they will fit your life using our size guide.
2023 Vauxhall Insignia : Engine
The Insignia new diesel engines literally come out of the same block and are available with a choice of 122 horsepower 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 174 horsepower four-cylinder, with a CO2-friendly manual transmission or optional eight-speed automatic transmission. In particular, the 1.5 is much lighter than the engine it replaces, both in terms of efficiency and handling.
The 2.0-liter petrol engine comes in standard 200 horsepower form or 230 horsepower on the more powerful GSI model. Both use a new nine-speed automatic transmission as standard. The GSI takes all-wheel drive to reduce its extra power in all weather conditions, helping it get off the line a little faster. The standard 200 horsepower petrol and found it to be smooth and reasonably refined, with enough performance to mix it up in straight and bumpy highway driving.
2023 Vauxhall Insignia : Safety
The Insignia Driver Assistance is essential for relieving the stress of those long hours on the road, and forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warnings are standard on the Insignia. The LED headlights are also available as standard, on higher specification versions in more advanced versions, and this relieves the burden of dark highway driving. Buyers still have to pay extra for some kits, including warnings for traffic passing behind when reversing out of parking spaces, and forward vision at intersections is blocked by thick front pillars.
