Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport revised for 2014

Vauxhall has revised its 325PS Insignia VXR SuperSport for 2014, with a modest restyle front and rear, a new instrument panel, and changes to its all-wheel drive and suspension systems.

The VXR SuperSport is still available in either Hatch or Sports Tourer form, and both models has received subtle styling tweaks such as ‘sabre-tooth’ detailing at the front and a tailpipe integrated into the rear valence.

The Haldex-based all-wheel-drive system has been improved, and Vauxhall say roughly 60% of the suspension components have also been revised.

The ESP software has been recalibrated to help control understeer, and the FlexRide adaptive damping system has also received a software update.

Inside, there’s a new instrument panel and centre console design, with optional Bluetooth internet connectivity, an 8-inch touch-screen, 3D navigation and voice control.  DAB digital radio is now standard.  NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) levels have also been fine-tuned.

Vauxhall claim the Insignia VXR SuperSport is the fastest car you can buy for under £30,000.  It can accelerate from standstill to 60mph in 5.9 seconds (6.1 for the Sports Tourer), and on to a 170mph top speed.

The Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport is available now priced from £29,749 for the Hatch, and £31,049 for the Sports Tourer.
