Vauxhall announces mid-size Insignia for 2008

A new vehicle from Vauxhall has been designed to mark family saloon development at the company.

The Insignia – "a new name for a new era" – is a mid-size model which the automaker will debut at next year’s British International Motor Show in London in July.

Victor was the first mid-size range released by the company in 1957, with the Cavalier and Vectra automobiles following in its wake.

Chief marketing officer at General Motors Europe Alan Visser commented that the preview of the car will give the industry and consumers a glimpse of the "exciting" nature of Vauxhall’s design plans for the future.

He added: "In the new Insignia, this defining characteristic is realised by sophisticated powertrain technology, active safety and the interface between driver and car."

Vauxhall celebrated its centenary in 2003 and is "at the forefront of British motoring engineering", according to its website.
