RDE2 Insignia from 120g/km
Vauxhall has confirmed its facelifted Insignia will come in from 120g/km under new WLTP testing figures when it launches next month.
The revised model is up to 18% more efficient than the outgoing car, with the most efficient model being the 122hp 1.5 diesel.
The full engine line-up also takes in a 174hp diesel which will follow later this year, and three petrol engines available from launch in the form of the 145hp 1.4, 200hp 2.0-litre and the range-topping all-wheel drive 230hp 2.0 GSi model.
Trim levels run from SE Nav through SRi Nav, SR- VX-Line Nav and Ultimate Nav to the top GSi model, with pricing ranging from £23,790 to £38,850.
The company has also confirmed that its entire car line-up is now RDE2-compliant, which means a four-band drop in BiK bands for all diesel models. The brand claims it is the first mainstream volume manufacturer to achieve compliance across its entire range.
All vehicles registered from January 2021 must meet the more stringent emissions regulation.

Website lists key worker service centres
Industry data expert Cazana has launched a new website resource of the service centres still able to maintain vehicles for key workers. Called www.keyworkergarages.co.uk, the site offers a postcode search of the facilities still open at its partner dealers, as well as opening hours and contact details.
“This is a challenging time for both the automotive industry and all those who are on the front line fighting this pandemic and we wanted to do something as a team to help both the nation’s essential keyworkers and the dealer service departments remaining open,” said Cazana’s Tom Wood.
