The Grand Sport hatchback has been tweaked, and extra safety technology and new engines have been added, but aside from that, you would be forgiven for thinking that not much else has changed. However, when looking closely at the styling department, you will notice a new profiled front bumper and a different grille, both of which have new chrome inserts, and reshaped headlights.
Let's talk about the headlights, if you're familiar with the new Vauxhall Astra and Vauxhall Corsa, then take a look at the headlights as these are similar to the upgraded Insignia. If you opt for the high-spec car, you will benefit from Matrix LED units which are not only more energy-efficient than the standard headlights, but they provide full-beam power without dazzling other drivers. They are able to do this by working with the front-facing camera to work out how and when to adjust the beam. The LED daytime running lights have also been re-positioned, which make them more visible in poor weather.
At the back of the car you'll see another two chrome pieces which have been designed to look like exhaust tips. Aside from this, the outgoing model of the car remains unchanged.
Inside the car you'll see new graphics on the touchscreen, which comes in either seven or eight inches, depending on the version you choose. A new rear-view camera has also been fitted, and this features the option to have a rear cross-traffic alert for when you are reversing out of a car parking space.
The 2020 Insignia has a new engine range which consists of three petrol and one diesel engine. The 1.4-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with 143bhp officially returns 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions of144g/km.
Above that is the 2.0-litre engine, which is available with either 197bhp or 227bhp and both come exclusively with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.
The only diesel available in the range is the 1.5-litre three-cylinder BlueHDi engine with 120bhp which comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, 57.6mpg and 130g/km of CO2. The diesel model prioritises economy over performance and is expected to be the slowest in the range.
You can also look forward to the arrival of a hybrid model which is expected to use the 197bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors for a combined total of 296bhp and is said to have similar performance figures to one of its rivals, the Grandland X PHEV which manages 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds, a top speed of 136mph and a 30-mile electric-only range.
The stunning new Vauxhall Insignia takes on the pioneering and the luxury style of its predecessor and refines it even further. It delivers the perfect blend between elegance and aggression, with subtle yet sophisticated chrome detailing and with the Vauxhall Insignia, you can be sure to find the perfect balance between power and efficiency.
