LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – Dec 5, 2012: England Manager Roy Hodgson is the latest footballing addition to the Vauxhall driving family.

Hodgson was presented with his brand new Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer at St George’s Park, the recently-opened National Football Centre in Burton, as part of the partnership between The Football Association and lead sponsor of the England Team, Vauxhall.

Roy Hodgson commented: “I am delighted to be driving a Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer.

“Vauxhall is the outstanding lead partner of the England Team and I am personally grateful for the support they have given to me since becoming England manager.”

Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director Duncan Aldred said: “We are very pleased that Roy has chosen to drive a Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer.

“Two years into our partnership with The FA and the relationship continues to go from strength to strength, we are looking forward to 2013 and playing our part in the Road to Brazil campaign.

“We are very grateful for the excellent support we have received from Roy, the players, coaching staff and everyone connected with the organisation.”

With prices starting from 18,040, the Insignia is one of the UK's top-selling cars and is number one in its segment with over 46,000 sales alone this year.

Hodgson’s Insignia Sports Tourer Elite is powered by a 2.0 CDTI (195PS) BiTurbo engine, the most powerful diesel unit in the range.

Elite trim features dual-zone electronic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and leather trim with heated front seats, all as standard.

Vauxhall is proud sponsor of the England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales national football associations.
