Lookers is delighted to share with you the first images of the all-new Insignia, Vauxhall’s multi award-winning flagship large saloon, which showcase the car’s refreshed design and wide range of improved technology features.
With its dynamic exterior styling, high levels of efficiency and innovative new functionality, the Insignia has picked up the Auto Express Family Car of the Year 2019, Carbuyer Best Large Family Car 2019, and J.D. Power Most Dependable Midsize Car 2019 awards - helping Vauxhall add to the success of the 1.2 million Insignia models that have been delivered to customers – with over 300,000 bought in the UK – since it was first introduced 10 years ago.
Bold new design
With a new front and rear design, the flagship large saloon is reimaged with bold, yet attractive styling. The front of the Insignia Grand Sport follows the example set by the shape of the innovative new headlights, with the new chrome-edged radiator grille wider and featuring more prominent slats, making the Vauxhall logo in the middle appear larger.
Overall, the new Insignia looks lower and wider than before, thanks to the position of the air inlets with integrated fog lamps. It looks sharper and more coupe-like in its styling than ever before, with the Insignia’s design defined by clear lines.
Precisely placed chrome accents add to the stylish ambience in the top-of-the range model.
Next-generation IntelliLux LED headlights
Class-leading IntelliLux LED technology is equipped in the Insignia’s headlights for the first time. The Vauxhall-exclusive feature is deployed in the Insignia for high energy efficiency and to project more light for safer conditions driving at night.
An industry-leading total of 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 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 Insignia more efficient overall. The headlights can be used as LED daytime running lights (DRLs), dipped or main beam to suit the conditions.
The light functions range from adapting to a curve in the road, to bad weather, to town, country or motorway driving.
Innovative new technology
The newest version of the popular Insignia model features class-leading technology and equipment. As a first for this flagship model, the Insignia 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 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 several 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.
Speaking about the flagship large saloon, Lookers Vauxhall Franchise Director, Steve Eley, said: “The Insignia is an ideal family car, and with a new bolder design and innovative technology I’m very confident that its popularity will continue grow in what is an ultra-competitive market.”
