Vauxhall Insignia VXR Supersport first drive review

Vauxhall Insignia VXR Supersport first drive review Ballsy price gives the hot Vauxhall Insignia VXR Supersport a real selling point, but it remains a slightly tame, mannered fast saloon The ever-so-slightly updated Vauxhall Insignia VXR. It's new '170mph' top speed is the kind of number that draws the eye, and it may well make a few fast-lane regulars look at the car afresh – but it's not the number that matters most about this performance saloon.The more important number to concern yourself with is '£29,995'. Following last year's subtle revision of the Insignia range, Vauxhall has taken the opportunity to reposition the VXR halo model, and it's done so in a somewhat aggressive, route-one fashion. Vauxhall has added 'Supersport' to the car's name, disabled the electronic speed limiter and fitted a new speedometer to suit, plus it has also lopped a healthy four-figure sum from the asking price.So here is a sports saloon with more power than either a BMW 335i or an Audi S4, but costing very nearly £9000 less than that Audi. Less, even, than a three-door BMW M135i.
