Vauxhall Insignia VXR saloon (2009-2012)

Carbuyer Rating

2.5 out of 5

Used car deals

Looking to compete with more premium branded rivals the Insignia VXR is Vauxhall's entrant into the large, sports saloon segment currently dominated by Audi, BMW and Mercedes. Offering the same practical four-door, five-seater layout as the rest of the Insignia range, the performance orientated VXR houses a 2.8-litre V6 engine that packs 321bhp. Unlike previous VXR saloons, the latest Insignia has handling to match the straight line pace thanks to a sophisticated four-wheel drive system and very well judged suspension settings.
