With the new 09 plate out today, this caught my eye and I think this is a caracking deal for a brand new modern saloon. BTW I do not work for a dealership or in the motor industry. Only snag is, Peter Vardy dealerships are in Scotland. But I guess if you are looking to buy this car and save over £4500 on the rrp a trip on a train or coach is worth the effort. I guess Peter Vardy is a Brother of Reg Vardy? (more dealerships in England).

Hate how they always use an image of a top of the range car to sell a bottom of the range one.

They do it to intice you in. Shiny Alloy wheels, metallic paint, a subtle body kit, privacy glass. All makes the car look macho and sexy. But then they do put the small print at the bottom saying "model shown is bla bla bla" lol!

is a good price, so Hot from me, but I'll wait 3 three years and get a TOTR sport tourer version for peanuts S/H. Best looking car Opel have made in a long time.

I've seen this car on the road (still rare) and it ticks all the boxes for me, especaily on looks, image, space and safety.

It's a personal choice between Ford and GM. IMO the mondeo is too bulky and square. the insignia has smooth lines and is along the lines of a concept car shape. You need to see one in front of you to appreciate the design and features.

Plus the Mondeo brand is 12 years plus old? the Insignia came out just last month. All new car in every sense.

HOT - Significantly cheaper than the price that GM employees can buy one for

i got an omega, wanting to upgrade and this car looks amazing.



go for it, whats stopping you. instead of the usual things you might do on a sunday morning like go to the supermarket and do your grocery shopping, go and buy this amazing NEW £12k car.

No disrespect to the Omega (was a good car in the mid 90's) but when you get behind the wheel of the Insignia it will feel like all your dreams have come true.

so how much more for the tasty paintjob, dark windows and alloys, or is that only on the top engine models?

look on the spec and options list. I'm sure a 1.8 model comes with Alloys. would look naff with wheels caps. About £380 for the met. paint I guess.

A modeo is horrible and cheap looking on the inside though - got a fairly high spec one as a hire car and was disgusted. I thought they looked nice from the outside, but the interior was poor, the visibility was rubbish and the drive felt underpowered. A very blah driving experience all round!

you should now test drive the Insignia and then you can all give us a test drive review comparing the 2. I'm sure the Insignia will appeal to all.

Mondeo is soooo bland.....lives up to its mundaneo nickname

It is still a Vauxhall, so no thanks.

Just an upgraded Vectra really.

Vauxhall reckons the Mondeo rival is a huge step forward from the … Vauxhall reckons the Mondeo rival is a huge step forward from the unloved Vectra, and the styling is a world apart, with swinging styling lines punctuating the curvy body. However, picking the wrong combination of colour and wheels can make the new car appear a little bland and old.Inside, the Insignia at least matches its Ford nemesis for quality and probably beats it for ergonomics and usefulness. The only places the Ford is significantly better are the steering wheel, the gearshift – the Insignia offers too long a movement between gears – and the seats. After a couple of hours, the Insignia’s hard standard seats, that populate the bottom half of the range, were beginning to become uncomfortable. ...Drivers stepping into an Insignia from a Vectra will think it’s Christmas, but those already used to the refinement and quality of the Honda or even the Mondeo, will find less to get excited about. The new Vauxhall Insignia is a very good car, but not a great one.

A particular high point is the solidly constructed, attractively styled interior.But as a versatile family car, the Insignia has to move over for the Mondeo, which serves up a bigger cabin and larger luggage area. Better still, the Ford remains the benchmark in this class for driving dynamics.So, although the Vauxhall is stylish and good value, it just misses out on top honours.

It's not quite top of its class, but it pushes the best very hard......In fact, in most respects, the new Vauxhall pushes its Ford rival hard, although the truth is that, in most cases, the Ford just wins out. The Insignia's coupe-like profile limits the rear headroom, for example, while its boot is a little smaller than the Mondeo's and the Ford's steering has better feel......The real disappointment here is the entry-level 1.8-litre petrol engine, which really struggles to shift this car. It has the lowest torque level of any of the initial batch of engines, arriving past 4000rpm. The result is very little flexibility, and you need to work the engine hard to keep with traffic...We like:1. The styling - from certain angles2. Good value for money3. Good to driveWe don't like:1. Limited rear headroom for adults2. Weedy performance from 1.8-litre engine3. The styling - from certain angles

This is a completely different car from the Vectra.

The Vectra got terrible reviews, the Insignia got excellent reviews.

My overall verdict: a good 2nd hand buy in 3-4 years time. Possibly £5-6K in 2012 (in time for the olympics).

yes, but in any other business this would be known as blatant misselling

GM looks to be on shaky ground, what would happen to the warranty and residual prices if they pull the plug on Vauxhall?

Or maybe not if GM's financial situation gets any worse and they go bankrupt.

They are losing money hand over fist at the moment.

go and buy this amazing NEW £12k car.



Same old story. Just called to make tentative enquiry about the diesel at £12999.
+Metallic paint £500
+Extra for '09 plate £500
+included 'Plus' pack £400
+1st Reg fee and Tax £250

So thats a min of nearly £2k on top of advertised price.

You can get the new Skoda Superb diesel for less than that and there's no comparison in my eyes.

Not looking quite so good now.

Isn't every car manufacture ?

As with all cars no point buying new, if they are £12k new give it a few months and a nearly new one will be around £9k

Nice if you like changing dual mass fly wheels and clutchs Mondeos are great for people with spare cash who love throwing it away!

Why on earth would somebody buy a brand new car?

That made me laugh, very true indeed. And responding to why anybody on HUKD would buy one, why not? This is money saving and if somebody is looking to buy a brand new Insignia they have just spotted it for hopefully a cheaper price than elsewhere potentially saving them money that they were going to spend anyway. Nothing wrong with buying a brand new car for some people, each to his own.

I bought a car from peter vardy a few months ago, ive still got some vouchers lying around for £200 off if anyone needs one, they gave me a bundle.

good deal for a new car, just a real shame its a bloody vauxhall and a new vauxhall at that, cant wait to see how many problems this model has.

Apparently .. some motoring correspondent said that Vauxhall was about to reduce all prices by 40% on Sky News earlier today, not sure how accurate that is/was.

Sure, I guess so. But there are precious few people whose first 'money saving' tip when it comes to cars would be anything other than 'Don't buy a new car'.

Ahhhh the legend goes on. Not bad for a bloke who sold the buisness for £509 million and still walked away with just under £50 million in his back pocket. Sir peter your the man.:thumbsup:
