With the Vauxhall Vectra now consigned only to used car buyers, it is left in the hands of the Vauxhall Insignia to carry the baton in the family car segment for the manufacturer.
And a review of the vehicle by Jonathan Smith in the Daily Record highlights that Vauxhall has "pulled off a massive challenge" with its latest offering, despite being under financial restraints.
After completing a road test in the Insignia 2.0T SRi hatchback, Mr Smith argues that although many motorists may be tempted to buy the more frugal diesel model, the petrol offering should also be considered.
One of the reasons for this is that although the engine has the capability of reaching a top speed of 150 miles per hour, it remains "refined and quiet", according to Mr Smith.
Furthermore, he highlights that the vehicle also "oozes style" on the inside, while offering a large amount of space for front seat passengers in particular.
Mr Smith concludes that the boot is "huge" and is capable of growing to accommodate 1,465 litres of luggage when the seats are dropped.
According to Vauxhall, the Insignia "meets the highest standards in ergonomics and comfort" thanks to its choice of high-quality surfaces, chrome accents and colours.
