The Vauxhall Insignia flies the flag for excellent value – as long as you get a generous dealer discount, that is. We’ve found three money-saving deals to tempt you.
Vauxhall’s large car offerings have traditionally been seen as low-status sales-rep cars. The Insignia bucks this trend somewhat, with more sophisticated styling and road manners than the Vectras and Cavaliers of the past.
Taking on the likes of the Ford Mondeo, Honda Accord and Skoda Superb is a big task, but the Insignia has been successful and is currently sitting in 10th spot for new car registrations this year.
Save £7,000 on petrol and diesel Insignia
The Insignia is available in both four-door saloon and five-door hatchback guises. The hatchback offers more practicality and better access to the boot.
Arnold Clark is offering the petrol-powered Insignia 1.8i SRi hatchback with a brand new ’62’ plate for just £14,495 – that’s £7,870 off list price. Although more entry-level than top-spec, this model still comes with alloy wheels, cruise control and the range-wide five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
For those driving more than 10,000 miles a year, the diesel engine is likely to provide cost savings thanks to better fuel economy. The 2.0-litre diesel returned 50.4mpg in our tests, compared to 45.6mpg for the 1.4-litre petrol variant.
You can pick up the 2.0 CDTi SRi hatchback with a 30% discount from Discounted-new-cars.com, meaning you save more than £7,370.

High-spec Insignia saloon for £21,377
The 2.0 CDTi engine is also available in the saloon body style. Nationwide-cars.co.uk is discounting the well-specified 4×4 SE Nav model by a huge £8,948. The 2.0-litre engine, coupled with a six-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive, produces 160bhp with claimed fuel economy of 44.1mpg.
Standout features include a built-in DAB radio and sat nav with a 7in screen and all music functionality.

Hot Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
