Vauxhall's replacement for the Vectra. Excellent specification levels, engines, comfort and build quality make this is a compelling a choice. Added to that there is sophisticated styling and handling.
The lack of a premium badge and plentiful supply has kept prices low and the car is very well built and equipped for the money. Not as much fun to drive as the Mondeo but better built and more comfortable.
There is a very large disparity between the petrol and diesel models. On a 1 year old SE model a diesel variant will cost £1500 more and will have around 5000 fewer miles on the clock.
The best Insignia to buy depends on whether you intend to keep the car for a long period or sell within the first three years. If it is the former then a petrol makes the most sense. If the latter then a well specified diesel is the way to go.
The cheapest Insignia is going to be a 1.8 SE petrol hatchback with a manual box. Expect to pay around £14,500 for a year old car. A comparative mid range diesel should cost about £1500.00 more. A top spec 2.2 diesel auto will cost as much as £18,500.
The best time to buy is nearly new or at three years when the first MOT will be issued. A 2.8 Turbo petrol will have lost £10,000 in the first year.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Vauxhall Insignia you would aim to buy a 3 year old and sell it before it is 4 years old.
Diesel Vauxhall Insignia cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Vauxhall Insignia cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Vauxhall Insignia cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
