Vauxhall IntelliLink in-car infotainment review

Vauxhall's infotainment system is far better than anything the manufacturer has offered before

Latest Vauxhall infotainment set-up offers features you’d previously have expected solely on more premium cars. Not only is there plenty of standard kit, you can also add OnStar with a concierge button and its own 4G web. This is free for 12 months, but £79 from then on, excluding internal Wi-Fi. 

Even standard models are packed with gear – a seven-inch touchscreen, DAB, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can pay £700 to get an eight-inch touchscreen, sat-nav and more, but this is included on higher-spec cars.

The system is all touchscreen apart from four buttons, and generally it’s intuitive to use despite some quirks. Sat-nav routing is very good and postcode input is simple, but adding an address is long-winded.
