MEET the new Vauxhall Vectra, but just don’t call it that! The all-new model has an all new name – Insignia! With a dramatic design, the family car has Ford’s Mondeo firmly in its sights.
We have to say it looks superb – but can’t help thinking there’s a hint of the VW Passat in there. Still, that’s no bad thing and with five engines available at launch and all-wheel drive, the Insignia certainly seems to boast the right credentials. Vauxhall plans to unveil the new model officially at the British Motor Show in July.
‘We’ve redesigned our design vocabulary,’ said Mark Adams, vice president of design for GM Europe. Quite what that means is beyond us, but he went on to add the Insignia is supposed to be ‘muscular, lithe and curvaceous’. Quite.
