    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!

    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
