Is a used Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport a good car?
The Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport is an executive car for those who don’t want (or don’t have the budget) for something from the likes of BMW, Audi and Mercedes. It’s very similar to the Insignia that came before it, but is meant to be a bit posher than the old car.
As such it gets a swoopy roofline that’s almost coupe-like, and it’s wider and lower than the old car to make it look a bit more sporty and imposing. There is a downside to this, which is the fact that the roofline eats into rear seat headroom quite a bit.
A Skoda Superb will be more spacious inside, and have a bigger boot, too. At 490 litres, the Vauxhall is fairly spacious, but you get more room in the Skoda and a Ford Mondeo. If you’re set on the Vauxhall but boot space is a sticking point, there is an Insignia Sports Tourer estate version.
Whichever body shape you go for, the Insignia is comfortable for long distances, though this is at the expense of fun on a twisty road. This is reflected in the fact that the used market is full of diesels, which appeal to people who do a lot of motorway miles.
What to look for when buying a second hand Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport
Vauxhall doesn’t have a fantastic reputation for reliability, and the older Insignia regularly scored poorly in owner satisfaction surveys. However, with newer models sharing parts with other Vauxhall models, repairs and maintenance aren’t too expensive.
Many of these models will have spent a life on the motorway, so could have racked up a lot of miles. If this is the case, the engine shouldn’t have been too highly stressed, so it’s nothing to worry about so long as you see evidence of regular maintenance.
As with any high mileage car, particularly those that have been used as company cars, be sure to look around the interior for any obvious signs of wear and tear. The driver’s seat is a common place for damage to appear.
Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport FAQs

Fuel economy depends on the engine and your driving style, but the Insignia does come with some economical engines. The 1.5-litre petrol gets 46mpg in official tests, and we saw about 40mpg, which is decent. Opt for a diesel and you should see more than 50mpg on a long run.
