    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default Insignia 2.0T

    If I was going to get a new Insignia, the 2.0T would be tempting

    220PS (217bhp)
    350Nm (258 lb/ft) Torque
    0-60 7.3 secs
    Top Speed 149mph

    Well I can dream, although my remapped 2.0T is close to it.

    I assume it's still the Z20NETengine. I notice it is Euro5 compliant. Is Euro5 all about reduced emissions compared to Euro4? The emissions are about the same as the current facelift 2.0T with an extra 44bhp. And a big extra dollop of torque. Impressive.

    I noticed that the other day. Not bad at all for a stock 2.0T. Not many manufacturers delivering that sort of bhp and torque for a standard 2.0T car. Choice of 4WD too.

    And remapped, would see it in the realms of Vec VXR territory (well the 255PS anyway), without the stupid road tax.

    Would the 4WD system be slower than the 2WD because of transmission loss or does it not work that way? Also thats good power, Only problem would be it will be years till there is any tuning options for it.

    4wd would be quicker,you could get all the power down off the line as long as the gearbox and clutch are up to it.
    in the 2wd you couldnt use all the power from a standing start because you would just spin most away without going anywhere even more so in the wet obviously.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : CDTI158

    Year : 2012

    Default

    Yeah, nice engine (in specs). That's more like it for a 2.0T lump, up there with the Audis in power output. Quite thirsty though - just looking at the Vx website, and its combined mpg is worse than the current model. Combined 32 mpg is not great - compared to Audi 2.0T, 211 PS 38 mpg combined.
    The Insignia diesels don't offer anything over the Vectra models either (apart from reliability, possibly ). The performance isn't improved, and the fuel consumption and emissions are WORSE.
    Far behind the Audis and BMWs, so overall a bit disappointed with the figures there.

    BMW seems to be leading the way with emissions and mpg at the moment, wonder what they know nobody else does?

    I really like the Insignia but there is still something missing, think I need to view it in the flesh before I make my mind up.

    I agree, the petrol range seems ok, but the diesels are really lacking when compared to the german rivals.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Who buys a 2.0T petrol for consumption LOL?

    Also at least it being the Z20NET you know it's going to be reliable
