A large executive car for the equivalent company car tax of a family hatchback.
That, frankly, is the package that you get with the Vauxhall Insignia I’m running if you want to drive it as your next company car.
If you can forget about the money you’re saving on the fuel for a minute – see the last report – then think a minute about the company car tax you’re saving.
Or, put another way, boosting your monthly salary.
There is no other car in its class that can beat the Vauxhall Insignia for CO2 emissions. With its 2.0-litre CDTi 140PS turbodiesel engine, the Vauxhall Insignia ecoFLEX model is a paragon of carbon emissions virtue with just 98g/km of CO2 from its tailpipe.
In concrete terms, if you’re a company car driver, that’s a company car tax band of 15% in this financial year.
On the model selected by the judges as Best SME Company Car of the Year as well as Best for Tax – the Vauxhall Insignia Hatch 2.0 CDTi Design Nav 140PS ecoFLEX Start/Stop – that means you’ll pay as little as £50 a month. (On the model I’m driving, the Elite Nav with a few more bells and whistles, it’s from as little as £60.)
