Vauxhall is currently testing a mid-life facelift for the second-generation Insignia models. Once complete the development team will turn their attention to the all-new model which will be launched around 3 years from now.
The Insignia successfully replaced the Vectra, However, the second model arrived just when the saloon market was shrinking and didn’t leave a lasting mark.
But now group PSA plans to introduce a new Insignia in 2022, using the EMP20 Platform according to this video report from Auto Bild.
The report seems to state that the GSi mildly-hot model will be joined by a shooting brake rather than a traditional estate. This makes sense, considering the practical version of the Insignia is almost too practical and could do with some glam.
The engines will all come from Peugeot and would include 1.5 and 2-litre turbocharged units in both petrol and diesel formats. A plug-in hybrid using tech from the recent 508 is also planned.
By 2022, the engine range should be geared towards EVs, as the technology has already made its way to the Corsa.
