The Vauxhall Insignia Tech Line Offers 'Astonishing' Savings


The Insignia and its ‘Whisper’ diesel engine are “definitely worth serious consideration”, says BusinessCarManager. “However, although the economy and CO2 are brilliant at 65.7mpg and 114g/km respectively, it’s our previous SME Company Car Winner, the 2.0-litre CDTI 140 Ecoflex that’s still our ultimate favourite. “But for £22,984, this Tech Line undoubtedly offers a lot for the 20 per cent tax payer at just £69 a month – an astonishingly low amount for so much car.” The new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel has “more power” and “is noticeably smoother and refined, right from start up”. With 14 per cent more torque, “this engine feels more sprightly from right down the rev-range” and “meets stricter Euro-6 emissions regulations. This engine is well-matched to the light, slick-shifting five-speed manual transmission here too.” The ‘Whisper’ diesel “should prove cost-effective to run, too, with a 65.7mpg combined consumption figure and just 114g/km emissions, meaning this Vauxhall falls into tax band B, resulting in just £20 a year in VED”. The Insignia is “as good to drive as ever” with “sharp” steering and a “refined, comfortable ride”.
