More pics of Vauxhall’s new Mondeo rival
4 June 2008

These are the first official pictures of the new Vauxhall Insignia’s interior. We brought you pics of Vauxhall’s new Mondeo rival earlier this year, when leaked images of the interior were also revealed. These new pictures show in detail what you can expect from the new, more premium executive Vauxhall.Some neat details include the ‘night-time appearance’ of the instrument lighting, which changes from white to red when the sort button is pressed. Vauxhall also describes a “wrap-around interior, dominated by the signature wing”.John Puskar, Executive Director of Interior Design at GM, describes the Insignia as “a paradigm shift for Vauxhall. We wanted to create interior environments for all our future vehicles that are warm, inviting and sporty. The Insignia is the first evidence of this philosophy.”Go to the gallery to see more interior and exterior details of the Insignia.

Very nice - looks warm and inviting. I much prefer it to the Mondeo. Mazda 6's interior is nice, but every so slightly plasticky in places. Citroen C5 interior also nice, but lots of useless cubbyholes darted around the dashboard. The Laguna's interior will be the one to beat, and it looks as if Vauxhall may have cracked it. Especially love the way it looks as if it will cocoon the driver and passenger. Very cosy indeed.

It's nice, the only problem I can see with it is the badge on the front... It's a Vauxhall?

Nice Dashboard, but looking at the instrument binnacle i would say AUDI and VW should take it as a compliment that GM has copied them so obviously

The steering wheel is horrible - what is it with that massive centre spoke.

Hope the seats are better than the Vectra.

Had a hire Vectra a couple of months ago through work (2.2 Elite with leather) for a journey from Staffs to London and back, I was constantly fidgeting and extremely uncomfortable.

The office Astra is the same, Vauxhall can't make seats to suit me for some reason.

I used to have a Corsa and I agree that unless the basic shape of GM seats have changed then I would never own a GM car. I had to sell the Corsa because it played havoc with my back.

I used to do a weekly commute in our old Corsa to London and back, I agree, it was murder.

Mind you, the old chain driven 1.2 16v engine was a gem.

I used to have the 1.6 16v - it was fast..........in a straight line.

5 June 2008

I picked up one of the first 1.7 diesel Corsa's for the RAF.........it broke down.

Well to be fair, MOD workshops skimped on the acceptance/initial check.....apparently, there was hell to pay. I made sure of that after they blamed me for driving it too hard.

I'd only driven half a mile in it. Twonks.

Quite attractive but way too many buttons on the centre console. This seems to be a real problem at Vauxhall!!

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
