    HI Duncan,have a look at the teaser video on the linky he's sent,wait till the end,and then just before it finishes you'll get your biggest clue as to what it'll be called in the UK.....Suffice to say it has a lot in common with a particular old make of antiperspirant!!

    INSIGNIA: A NEW NAME FOR A NEW ERA

    • Vauxhall’s new mid-size model to debut at 2008 British Motor Show
    • New name marks the latest stage in 50-year family saloon heritage
    • Excellent levels of dynamics and quality


    It’s a new name for a bold new model, as Vauxhall announces plans to launch its next mid-size contender at the British International Motor Show in London in July 2008. Insignia marks the dawn of a fresh era for the Griffin-badged marque.

    With its dynamic design and class leading technology, the new Insignia will shift the perception of the Vauxhall marque to a more aspirational level. It adds both dynamic zest and visual desire to Insignia’s core market, while also displaying the same kind of upmarket feel as some of its more expensive rivals.

    “Dynamic performance is one of the Vauxhall brand’s core values. In the new Insignia, this defining characteristic is realised by sophisticated powertrain technology, active safety and the interface between driver and car. The Insignia’s level of comfort and environmental friendliness is unrivalled even among considerably more expensive competitors,” says Alain Visser, Chief Marketing Officer, General Motors Europe. With the Insignia, Vauxhall continues pursuing its strategy of making advanced technology affordable for more customers.

    When it comes to the new car’s design, Visser says, “A closer look at our groundbreaking GTC concept car gives a good idea of how exciting Vauxhall’s new design language will be.”

    Insignia is the most innovative, ambitious model ever to come from Vauxhall, combining the best environmental technologies with those designed to deliver optimum driver pleasure and active safety. It is the latest evolution in GM's quest to lead the market, not just in volume but in quality, style and overall appeal.

    Vauxhall’s mid-size heritage dates back to 1957, with the launch of the Victor. In total, over a million Victors were sold over five generations. It was succeeded by the Cavalier in 1975, which recorded over 1.8 million sales in three generations until 1995. Two generations of Vectra were then produced, and over a million models have been sold in the UK to date.
