Here at SLM Vauxhall we are excited to announce that the flagship Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport has been awarded Family Car of the Year 2018 at the Auto Express Awards.
The ceremony was held in London last week and coincided with the 30th anniversary of the launch of Auto Express back in 1988. The judging panel was made up of the magazine's expert reviewers, with only the very best models making it on to the winners' list.
Steve Folwer, Editor-in-Chief at Auto Express, explained why the Insignia beat off its competitors, saying "space is one of the biggest priorities for a car in this class, and the Insignia Grand Sport delivers it by the shedload.
“It looks great inside and out, and is packed with tech. It’s superbly refined on the move, and there are some efficient engines. Best of all is its price tag. You can park an Insignia Grand Sport on your driveway for a little over £19,000."
Vauxhall's Managing Director, Stephen Norman exclaimed "we are delighted that our flagship Insignia has been recognised by Auto Express at its annual awards. The Insignia Grand Sport is the ideal family car thanks to its elegant styling, equipment levels and affordable price."
The Insignia's stylish, large coupé design is inspired by the 2013 Monza Concept and is packed full of driver-focused technology from the inside out, including Lane Keep Assist, next-generation LED Matrix lighting and Automatic Emergency Braking. It also boasts Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus an optional Bose sound system to ensure every drive has an exceptional soundtrack. Engines range from 110PS to 210PS and is available with an all-new 1.5-litre turbo variant.
As well as this impressive new accolade, the Insignia has also been recognised at the Company Car Today CCT100 and 4X4 Magazine awards.
