swaps My car of the day, new 2020 Vauxall Insignia.

Vauxhall have updated it's popular family car for 2020. The front has been restyled that now has expanded chrome - edged radiator grille and adaptive beam LED headlights. The new Insignia "looks lower and wider" than before without any real dimension changes to give it a more coupe like looking car. No engine changes confirmed as of yet but considering the new PSA ownership, it's likely new engines will be carried over from within the group. Inside, the graphics on the navigation system have been improved to give it a fresher, more modern look. Vauxall are hoping sales of the Insignia will revive on the outgoing model as European sales of the Insignia have more than halved in the last decade.


Like it?

Insignia? One of the most awful cars I've driven.

Looks ok, but cant get past the history!

When this Insignia is totally revamped onto a PSA platform, I'm sure it'll probably be a nice car.

This Vauxhall developed one....no thank you.

Good looking car although not much different to the current model. Seen a lot of good about how they drive as well.

They're lovely cars and lovely to drive too. I've had one as a company car and the 1.5 165 petrol engine is great.

Can't wait for this new model.
