The first official photos of the redesigned Vauxhall Insignia were released by the company today.  It’ll make its world debut at the Frankfurt show with first deliveries expected to customers in October.

Available as a five-door Hatch, four-door Saloon and Sports Tourer estate, the new Insignia range now starts from £16,279, nearly £2,000 less than the out-going model.

There are four new engines, including a 140 PS 2.0-litre CDTi unit that emits just 99 g/km of CO2.

Two new turbocharged petrol engines join the line-up – a 1.6-litre SIDI (Spark Ignition Direct Injection) 170 PS Turbo and 250 PS 2.0 SIDI Turbo – while the remaining diesel engines have been revised to improve refinement.

A new infotainment system incorporates Bluetooth internet connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen, 3D satellite navigation, DAB digital radio and voice control.

The range itself has been simplified to just eight trim levels – Design, Energy, Limited Edition, SRi, SRi VX-Line, SE, Tech Line and Elite.

Standard equipment on all models includes electric windows, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, automatic headlights, electronic parking brake, partial electric seat adjustment, Bluetooth connectivity and LED running lights.

Prices start from £16,279 for the entry-level Design model and rise to £21,379 for the range-topping Elite.
