    Default 1.9 Vectra CDTi 150 VS 2.0 CDTi 160 insignia Sri

    As the title, I had a short drive home today (Bishop Auckland to Ayrshire) and was trying to get there on time to pick up my daughter from school after not seeing her for three days ( aww,,,,,,,)

    Anyway on a certain section of fast dual carriageway, I had some muppet attempt to to use his Insignia to clean my headlights from the rear as I sat in a stream of traffic behind a large wagon, so I waited until the traffic began to clear and as the last car pulled in, I had a nice open stretch of a very well known dual carriageway ahead so decided (as he was still close enough to use his rear wiper to clean my spec's) to do a 4th 5th 6th drag race with him.

    RESULT!!!!! I out pulled him to XXXX mph,,,, and he was trying! I left him boys! I cannot imagine my car is chipped, but the extra weight in the Insignia takes a heavy toll.

    All in about 600 miles done and the BC reset on departure is saying 50.1mpg despite this and another little fracas from Derby to Castleford where I drove a wee bitty too quick

    Opinions pretty please on the performance? as I had always felt this one slower than the last one.

    I think it remaps to around 210....and a **** load torque...I always thought that he 150 veccy was quicker than the 160 insignia..having owned a veccy diesel before the insignia. And this post just proves my theory..

    I wouldn't mind the insigna 4x4 in my veccy though mind torque steers like a ***** in 1st 2nd and 3rd but it must weigh a bit

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Personally, I think the best driver won. I doubt if there's that much between the two. Insignia has more torque and it comes on stream earlier.

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    Yip the Insignia's problem is it's weight - too much of it. All I know is mpg isn't as good as the equivalent Vectra - in this case a CDTI 150.

    other possibilities -
    • one was manual, one was automatic (i.e. the insignia had automatic transmission)
    • the 2.0(160) is available with 4x4 since sept 2010 i've just read. 4x4 model would surely be a bit slower.
