Maybe if they can do you a deal on another Antara but not an insignia.

I think vx should step in and help the dealer out because of all the hassle I would call them and see what they say.

If you don't ask you don't get.

The Insignia is a really nice car, my neighbour has two of them but remember the new face lifted insignia comes out in october I think it is, so please check that cause you don't want one of the old models when the new one is right around the corner.

There is also a new "raised" Insignia similar to the Subaru Legacy Outback. It looks the part even if it is sh*t compared to a Legacy! My motto is, if it does not come from Germany or the far East do not buy it!

I think the towing capacity of the insignia is about 1600kg.If that suits - it may be worth considering.


Make sure it is a 2013 model and not a 2012 spec left hanging around.


You can do this from the VIN number.
Post this into a website that gives you year and country of manufacture.

I would seriously look at the figures and see what's going on. Bear in mind the trade in for a 1 year old Antara is around £12,000

I would either want my antara back, as new or a new antara. Surely, if wanted an insignia you would have chosen one to begin with?

I owned an insignia sports tourer for 18 months before px ing it for the antara . The insignia was a good towcar plenty of power but let down by poor grip on grass . As I do a lot of caravan rallies I soon got fed up of being rescued by 4x4 's . The grass only had to be damp and the car would get stuck! On Tarmac though it was hard to fault and the economy was better 35 mpg towing 1500kg , 40-43 mpg solo . My insignia was the SE model which had better suspension than the SRI . I would suggest the SRI would be a very firm ride when towing .
