    Default The saloon looks better than the hatchback IMO.

    Just my opinion based on looks. The hatch may be more practical and it will prove to be more popular, but I prefer the "impractical" and less popular saloon.



    I think it looks better proportioned and more symmetrical than the hatchback model.

    And sorry for posting yet another picture of an Insignia SRI sitting on the optional 20-inch alloy wheels. I was going to post the picture of an S saloon sitting on standard 16-inch planstic hubcap 'n' steelies, but Vauxhall's website doesn't allow link stealing...

    Gotta say im with you on this mate, but IMO it needs to be lowered a tad at the front end and also a front splitter to make it look complete

    As much as i like the saloon, i would have to buy the hatch,just so i could put the dog in the hatch bit for holidays, trips to the vet, etc, not sure it would like being put in the boot.

    Insignia saloon and hatch look practically the same if you ask me. now the Vectra on the other hand, I just can't stand as a saloon - pointless and ugly...

    Agree also.

    This is the first saloon that Vauxhall has made for some time that is actually in proportion and looks very nice. The last good looking Vauxhall with a boot was the Vec B.

    Vectra saloon. Not saying nothing!

    Spoke to a VX salesman a couple of weeks ago: he was saying it was about 50/50 between saloons and hatches at the moment, which is interesting, as the vectra hatch sold loads more than the saloon.
