2017 Insignia - a taxi breakthrough moment
In terms of style, space and performance, the new Insignia goes head to head with the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4s. Yet it's priced like a VW Passat or Ford Mondeo. Yours on pre-order for just £372 pm, inc. VAT and home delivery* with a £1,000 deposit.
Call 01525 717 695 for more info.

I'd sooner poke rusty forks in my eyes than drive an Insignia.

Never liked the insignia, either to look at or drive. Can't believe a company that produced cars like the Carlton and cavalier (great cars in their day for PH work) now produce cr%p.

I had a Cavalier and Carlton plated, a black Carlton pulled onto the A5 one day, i was just about to call the driver a tVVat for baulking me when it got very small very quick

it was a Lotus Carlton

not great for PH but untouchable for street racing

It may have looked black but they only came in one colour, imperial green, but it did look black under certain light.
