Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport Wins Best Large Family Car for Second Year Running

The Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport has been awarded Best Large Family Car for the second year in a row at the Carbuyer Best Car Awards.

The Insignia is an extremely popular model thanks to its raft of high-tech equipment, including the IntelliLink infotainment system, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone connectivity. The Bose sound system adds to the premium feel within the cabin, by delivering exceptional audio for greater listening pleasure. What’s more, next-generation IntelliLux LED Matrix lighting is available, delivering performance without dazzling oncoming drivers.

The large coupé design is inspired by the 2013 Monza Concept and is almost 175kg lighter than its predecessor. With a lower driving position than the previous model, Carbuyer noted that the Insignia creates ‘a pleasing sense of connection with the road, which is matched by the overall driving experience’. The ‘excellent’ interior was praised for its impressive amount of legroom, while ‘exceedingly comfortable’ seats and superb ergonomics make Vauxhall’s focus on quality ‘clear to see’.

“Sleek looks and an enjoyable driving experience give the Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport a powerful appeal, then those great value prices put rivals even further into the shade,” said Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Carbuyer. “All of these factors together made for an easy pick for our 2019 Best Large Family Car prize.”

The Insignia is packed with the latest safety technology including Lane Keep Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking, complementing a full five-star Euro NCAP crash safety score, all of which are reassuring for families on the move.

With engines ranging from 110PS to 210PS, the Insignia is also available with an all-new 1.5-litre turbo variant. Carbuyer particularly praised the ‘strong fuel economy’ of all engines, making the Insignia cheap to run and efficient for families.

Steve Eley, Lookers Vauxhall Franchise Director said: “We’re thrilled to see the Insignia Grand Sport win Best Large Family Car for the second year in a row at the Carbuyer awards. It demonstrates the enduring appeal of the Insignia as well as the strength and success of the Vauxhall brand.”

“The class leading equipment, advanced safety features and spacious interior, it’s the ideal car for a family.”

The Insignia Grand Sport has proved popular among both fleet and family buyers, and is sold alongside the Insignia Sports Tourer, Country Tourer and the all-new performance-tuned GSi. In addition to this latest award, the new Insignia has been recognised at the Company Car Today CCT100, 4x4 Magazine Awards and Auto Express Awards.
