2020 Vauxhall Insignia facelift: prices, specs and release date

2020 Vauxhall Insignia facelift: prices, specs and release date

Due in showrooms this summer, Vauxhall’s new Insignia is on sale now priced from £23,120 on-the-road.

With best in class CO2s and fuel economy, the Insignia is refreshed for model year 2021 with an all-new range of fuel-efficient powertrains, revised technology and a bold and attractive exterior design.

Vauxhall’s new Insignia consumes up to 18 per cent less fuel than the outgoing model thanks to powerful new high-efficiency engines. A new top-of-the-range GSi model also joins the range.

The new Insignia engine range features three- and four-cylinder units, including a 1.5-litre (122PS) diesel unit that achieves CO2 emissions of 120g/km WLTP. The three-cylinder engines are up to 50kg lighter than their four-cylinder predecessors in the outgoing model. Above these are two 2.0-litre petrol engines with 200PS and 230PS, as well as a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel, which will be introduced later this year. All Insignia diesel units are fully RDE2 compliant, meaning no four percent BiK surcharge

The 2.0-litre petrol engines are also the first Vauxhall engines with cylinder deactivation. Unless the driver needs a lot of power, the variable camshaft control deactivates two cylinders, significantly reducing fuel consumption.

The new Insignia is available to order now in SE Nav, SRi Nav, SRi VX-Line Nav, Ultimate Nav and GSi trim levels. Highlights include the 1.5-litre (122PS) Turbo D model (prices start from £23,790 on-the-road) and the range-topping GSi 2.0-litre (230PS) AWD Turbo, with nine-speed automatic transmission (prices start from £38,850 on-the-road).

Next-generation IntelliLux LED headlights

Revised IntelliLux LED lighting technology is available in the new Insignia range. These class-leading headlights feature high-energy efficiency and project more light for safer conditions driving at night. An industry-leading 84 LED bulbs are fitted in each headlight, instead of the previous 16, allowing the camera-connected control unit to react faster and with more precision to every traffic situation.

The light beam is automatically switched between a dipped and main beam during night driving, with the IntelliLux LED technology adjusting seamlessly in milliseconds. The precision of these new headlights reduces the possibility of glare for oncoming or preceding traffic, as the light unit scans the road to be constantly reactive.

The power of the new IntelliLux LED headlights has been significantly increased, while the reduced energy consumption of the units makes the new Insignia more efficient overall. The 84 LED elements are arranged in three rows within the new ultra-slim headlight unit. The headlights can be used as LED daytime running lights (DRLs), dipped or main beam to suit the conditions.

Range and direction of the headlights vary according to the driving situation and surroundings. The light functions range from adapting to a curve in the road, to bad weather, to town, country or motorway driving. On the motorway, light beams are extended beyond the line of sight ahead so drivers can clearly see roadside signs, also reducing glare for oncoming drivers. The lights are also optimised to make parking easier.

Innovative new technology

The newest version of the popular Insignia model features class-leading technology and equipment. The Insignia also features a new rear-view camera that improves rearward vision. Safety in reversing can be increased with the optional rear cross traffic alert, which uses radar sensors to detect objects 90 degrees to the left or right behind the car, up to a distance of 20m away. The driver is warned by acoustic signals, and on the display screen.

Further driver assistive technology includes:

  • Forward collision with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection
  • Lane keep assist
  • Side blind spot alert
  • Adaptive cruise control with emergency braking
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Advanced park assist
  • Head-up display

For driver convenience, infotainment options are compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, from the basic seven-inch colour touchscreen Multimedia Radio to the Multimedia Navi Pro unit. The top-of-the-line version features an eight-inch touchscreen and a number of Connected Navigation services. Journeys can be made easier with real-time traffic information, online map updates and predictive navigation for route planning, while new symbols give the navigation display a fresher, more modern appearance.

The optional E-Call system, exclusive to Vauxhall, can be specified for new Insignia orders, automatically sending an emergency call if the seatbelt tensioners or airbags are deployed. Alternatively, help can be summoned in seconds by pressing the red E-Call button.

Innovative tech features are not limited to the running features or infotainment unit as ergonomically certified AGR seats are available as an option for the driver and passenger, while compatible smartphones can be charged wirelessly.
