• Insignia praised for its good looks, value and equipment levels
  • Autocar Awards recognise real-world heroes picked by readers

Vauxhall’s Insignia is the toast of the used car market after being named a 'Used Car Hero' at the 2018 Autocar Awards.

The theme of the 2018 Autocar Awards was ‘real-world heroes’ - readers were invited to pick a used car that is often overlooked but does its job sublimely well, and keeps so many UK motorists moving. The Vauxhall Insignia was praised for fulfilling this brief perfectly.

“It’s such an under-rated used car,” said Mark Tisshaw, Autocar’s editor. “The Insignia is good-looking, good value, very well-equipped, and has proven capable of covering big miles.”

Vauxhall’s first generation Insignia (2008-2017) was recognised for its functional and spacious cabin, great fuel economy and CO2 figures, as well as its overall value for money. The judges also noted that the refreshed 2013-2017 model had smarter looks and was even more pleasing to drive, only adding to the benefits of the Insignia.
