Showcasing sharper, edgier styling is the Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport, a swanky new name for the replacement of the company's large hatchback range. This time around there’ll be no traditional four-door saloon, but this chiselled new look will also appear later in 2017 on the replacement for the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer estate, as well as the new Insignia Country Tourer, complete with a raised ride height and SUV-inspired styling.

Buying new

  • Haggle hard – discounts should be available
  • Car supermarkets could offer a cheaper solution
  • Check out the Parkers Cars for Sale section for more

Vauxhall is famous for offering good discounts on its new cars, so you should go to the dealer with a haggling mindset and aim to get some money off. It's aggressively-priced, so concentrate on chipping away at monthly payments or grab additional options.

Another option is to go via a broker, where you’ll have less choice about specification and colour but a bigger slice off the list price.

Check out the Parkers Cars for Sale section to find a broker near you.

Buying used

  • Should be lots of former fleet cars on the market
  • Bargains available with high spec and decent engines
  • Find a decent model in Vauxhall’s Network Q Approved Used Scheme

This Insignia Grand Sport, like the car before it, will be sold in big numbers to company car drivers, usually with a big discount included.

That means you should be able to pick up a good used car bargain with plenty of equipment and an engine boasting low running costs.

Best of all, you can find one via Vauxhall’s Network Q Approved Used Scheme, meaning it’ll have had a multi-point inspection, full history check and money-back guarantee.

Selling

  • Fewer large hatchback and saloon buyers than before
  • Tempting alternative to a crossover or MPV
  • Fuel-efficient versions will be easier to shift

There’s less interest in this type of car than there used to be, particularly if it doesn’t have an eye-catching German manufacturer’s badge on it.

While family buyers are more likely to want a crossover or MPV, many others have downsized to smaller hatchbacks, with many large hatchback or saloon sales going to company car buyers.

That said, with a decent spec and economical engine you shouldn’t have too hard a job shifting your Insignia Grand Sport on, although owners of the high-power petrol might not find it so easy.
