Vauxhall has updated the engine range on the popular Insignia with the addition of two diesel options and one new Turbo petrol unit.
Vauxhall’s new Insignia diesel is the most efficient in its range with a ten per cent improvement in CO2 emissions over the previous generation.
The new ecoFLEX diesel model now has CO2 emissions of 115g compared to the 129g/km of the last model which see’s it fall in to the 13 per cent Benefit-In-Kind tax band for the first time with no VED for one year on the Sports Tourer and none at all on the saloon or hatchback.
Both engines have received Start-Stop technology and a number of aerodynamic revisions, including tweaks to the car’s chassis and low rolling resistance tyres.
The 2.0-litre CDTi is euro five compliant and available in either 130bhp or 160bhp with the less powerful engine delivering the flagship emissions figures.
Vauxhall’s more powerful diesel has a top speed of 137mph and is capable of clearing 60mph from standstill in 8.9 seconds - making it markedly quicker than its stablemate.
A new 1.4-litre engine has also been added to the former European Car of the Year’s engine line-up and again CO2 emissions are impressive on the Insignia at 129g/km and a combined cycle fuel economy of 51.4mpg.
Pricing for the new Vauxhall Insignia diesels start at £20,345 for the less powerful engine, while the 1.4-litre Turbo petrol is available from £18,860 in its hatchback bodystyle.
