PSA takeover means the range-topping Vauxhall Monza SUV faces an uncertain future
Vauxhall and Opel have started a 100-day process to come up with a business plan for new owner PSA (Peugeot and Citroen) â€“ but one proposed model already faces an uncertain future: the flagship large SUV.
The £1.9bn takeover of the two GM Europe brands was confirmed last week. There's said to be little immediate change in day-to-day activity, but Auto Express understands that plans for an â€˜Insignia SUV', often referred to as the Monza, have been shelved, at least for now.
The car, which would have been the range-topper in Vauxhall's line-up, was set to be built on the Insignia's platform and would have rivalled other big SUVs such as the Ford Edge with dramatic styling and a suitably plush interior.
