And no one announced that the Vauxhall Insignia won, but the Opel Insignia. So why all this confusion, it is unlike any other brand in Europe. Just call them Opels amd perhaps that will imporove the brand's image.
Sorry for this quick fit!
Other than that , even though i don't think the insignia was THE best of the bunch, its a great car and definitely a major improvement over the one it replaces. With the same logic though the Mondeo deserved the award even more when it was nominated as it was an excellent car. (yeah yeah fan boy). As AE says though this could not have happened at a better time for Opel, they truly needed some awards and the Insignia and new Corsa are 2 exceptionally good cars
Not from my part. I think exactly the same thing. GM should either give vauxhall its individuality like it once had and sell it round the world like it once did. Or, completely scrap Vauxhall, Buick and Saturn and Opel should become a world wide brand. Otherwise, ill just keep calling the new models the GM i.e the GM Insignia.
