Ive read many tests and reviews about the Insignia all over Europe, and i gotta tell you it will be a massive hit. The price is very good, unbelievable for the value, the knowledge is impressive (both in terms of technology and overall performance), as a matter of fact superior in that segment. This is the new benchmark. I used to be a test driver myself, so i know what i am talking about.

Im very confident regarding its success.

The new Avensis is yet to be tested, but GM really nailed it this time.

The main competitors are:

Ford Mondeo
VW Passat
Mazda6
Toyota Avensis
Citroen C5


Well done!:clap:

I truly hope that the Insignia comes over as is. If it is built here that reduces the cost slightly from labor and the shipping charge for the Ocean voyage. Without sales tax in germany it starts around 25,000 Euros with 1.6 turbo and 17 inch aluminum wheels in Edition trim but if the turbo could go with the base model it would be cheaper. So built in america you are looking at about $25,000 for the base XE. Then add the 2.0 turbo and the Edition trim for an XE with premium package with navigation and the Cosmo level Moroccan at around $28,000. And finally the XR adding the rest of the Cosmo appointments but keeping the 2.0 and starting around $33,500 with leather and comes standard with all wheel drive, and a premium package includes the 2.8 turbo and some other features, such as the sign reading camera and 19 inch rims at $36000.

At first, I was unimpressed by what I considered a Camry-like exterior. But researching into the Insignia impressed me. It's really a step-up from the Malibu. The Mali is a great car in line with the Accord and Camry, but Insignia is something else. The only saloon I would lust for more would be the Mondeo.
