Vauxhall Insignia rated best in class by owners via JD Power dependability study.
The Vauxhall Insignia has been rated as the best model in its class in the annual JD Power survey.
More than 13,500 owners of cars bought new were surveyed for the 2018 UK Vehicle Dependability Study to see how they had got on with their rides over the last 12 months.
In addition to emerging and new technologies, categories that they were quizzed about included driving experience, controls, navigation and transmission. After dividing the results into various segments, it was revealed by the JD Power organisers that the Vauxhall Insignia was the most dependable midsize car.
The Vauxhall Mokka X took second place in the small SUV segment, while the Viva was third among the most dependable city cars.
“The Vauxhall Insignia has proven itself to be an extremely robust and reliable car, and this ranking only further cements that. It is also great to see the Viva and Mokka X recognised by JD Power,” said Ian Mitchell, product marketing manager at Vauxhall.
“The Insignia’s class-leading technology, in particular, is key to its dependability. No other car in the segment offers such a wide range of driver assistance systems and technologies when compared to this latest edition of our flagship model.”
The survey mostly covers the final models of the first-generation Insignia, but the current second-generation version of the Insignia has been on sale since the middle of last year. The updated car is around 175 kg lighter than before and has a roomier interior.
The newest Insignia also features novelties such as all-wheel drive with eight-speed automatic transmission, LED matrix headlights and a head-up display.
