The Vauxhall Insignia won the European Car Of The Year shortly after its launch in 2009, prompting Vauxhall to boldly claim that it was good enough to take on existing executive favourites like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. In reality, the Insignia is more of a rival for the Ford Mondeo, Honda Accord and Citroën C5 than executive saloons. Despite its hatchback body, the Vauxhall is a handsome family car and offers a massive range of engines and specifications to choose from, including the VXR Supersport model that delivers an impressive 321bhp and has four-wheel drive for extra grip.
