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.

Equipment

  • Basic, sporty and luxury trims available
  • Decent standard spec and generous top tier
  • Helpful driving assistance optional extras too

The Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport’s trim levels will be familiar to owners of the previous generation or other cars from this manufacturer – there are seven in total, including a couple of optional sat-nav grades.

Standard Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport equipment

Kicking things off is the Design trim, which comes with 17-inch alloy-look wheels, automatic lights, electric windows front and rear, keyless entry and start plus electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors.

Gadgets-wise you get air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, and the IntelliLink 7.0-inch touchscreen audio system (DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto).

Next up is Design Nav, which as you may have guessed, simply adds the 8.0-inch Navi 900 IntelliLink sat-nav system with European mapping.

There are three sporty trims next: the first is called SRi and adds the following to the basic spec - 17-inch alloy wheels, front foglights, dark-tinted rear windows, rear spoiler and rain-sensitive windscreen wipers.

If you want a more performance-focused look pick SRi NAV, which adds the sat-nav system mentioned earlier, front sports seats and pedals, dual-zone electronic climate control, ambient LED lighting, twin rear USB sockets and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

Finally there’s SRi VX-Line Nav, which adds larger alloy wheels (17s on the 1.6-litre diesel and 18s for everything else) and the full-fat VXR Styling Pack (front and rear bumpers, side sills, visible exhaust tailpipe).

Inside there’s a heated flat-bottom steering wheel, dark fabric headlining and a larger 4.2-inch colour information display between the dials.

Next there are two more luxury focused trims based on Design cars, and the first is called Tech Line Nav, which has historically proved popular with company car drivers.

It adds 17-inch alloy wheels and chrome-effect door handles to the outside, plus twin rear USB sockets, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and 4.2-inch colour information display to the inside.

You also get driver’s seat tilt and lumbar adjustment and front passenger seat height adjustment, and handy tech including the eight-inch sat-nav, dual-zone electronic climate control, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers and front and rear parking sensors.

Top of the tree is Elite Nav, which builds on Tech Line by adding larger alloy wheels (17s on the 1.6-litre diesel, 20s on the 2.0-litre petrol and 18s for everything else) LED matrix headlights, front foglights and dark-tinted rear windows to the outside.

Inside the car you get leather seat facings, heated front and outer rear seats plus an 8.0-inch colour information display – 2.0-litre petrol models also get a Bose premium sound system. Pick a 4x4 car and you’ll also get torque vectoring, which we’ve explained in the Handling section.

OnStar

Standard on all Insignias is Vauxhall’s OnStar concierge service. Connected to the internet via the car’s antenna, this system can be used to contact the emergency services in the result of a crash, or to ask an OnStar representative to send directions to a destination to your sat-nav. It also provides a WiFi hotspot for up to seven devices.

Debuting in the Insignia are two new functions called OnStar Personal Assistant – the system can now recommend and book a hotel for you, and also send directions to a parking space to the sat-nav.

Optional Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport accessories

There are individually and bundled packs of optional extras for the Insignia, kicking off with the FlexRide adaptive suspension system, which offers a more comfortable or sporty ride, and a Driving Assistance Pack with adaptive cruise control.

Helping you keep your eyes on the road is a head-up display system and a Bose premium stereo can also be specified. Intellilux LED matrix headlights are impressive but pricey at the time of launch.
