    As above the insignia is a cracking motor, but too heavy for the 1.8 petrol

    The equivalent engine in the Vectra wasn't exciting, the Insignia being heavier I'd expect it to struggle - found the same with the old 200/700 series Volvo's, the 2.0 engines just lacked something the 2.3's didn't.
    I'd expect the next size engine up to transform the handling - and probably be more economical.

    If you think the 1.8 is bad, try the 105bhp 1.6 16v that Opel offer, it's horrendous!

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    Vectralicker got better MPG out of his Vectra VXR than he did out of his 1.8 Insignia. Sorry but I have to say it, why did Vauxhall put this engine (which by it's own right is a good engine) in the Insignia?

    Crazy if you ask me. If I was to get an Insignia, beyond question or shadow of doubt I would have the CDTI 160.

    Actually it's 1.6 85kW/115PS, but it's too weak anyway.

    Just to heavy a car for most of the 4cyl engines and also looses mpg too. A 2.0 turbo 4x4 gets 5mpg less round town then my vxr
