About Tail Light

Part of the car's lighting setup, the Insignia Vauxhall rear tail light, is an important safety feature of the car enabling other road users to clearly see the vehicle from the rear.

The rear tail light is an external light that fixes to the outside of the car at the rear and is contained in either a metal or plastic housing. The tail lights can be in the same housing as other lighting such as the indicator lights, brake lights, parking lights, reverse lights and hazard lights, forming one single tail light with several functions. When indicating to go left, the indicator or signal light bulbs flash to indicate to other road users that the driver intends to turn left. The indicator light is also used by drivers in emergency situations to alert other road users that there is a potential hazard. Brake lights illuminate when the driver applies pressure to the brakes to let other road users know that the car is slowing down or stopping.  Reverse lights illuminate when the driver puts the car into reverse, indicating to other road users that the car is reversing. Parking lights and hazard lights are used when the car is pulled up on the roadside, to alert other road users to the fact that there is a parked car. On some cars the tail light is a separate unit, however, often clustered together with the other rear vehicle lights. The tail light is wired up to come on when the front side lights are on and emits a red light which is designed to be duller than the brake light, so that the brake light is distinguishable from the tail light.

Unfortunately, because of their positioning on the vehicle and fragile bulbs, the Insignia Vauxhall rear tail light is prone to being smashed and cracked, particularly in a crash but also as a result of stones and debris flying up from the road or badly maneuvered reversing.

When replacing the rear tail light, it is important that you purchase a tail light intended for the car. Rear tail lights come in many different sizes and styles. Purchasing a new Insignia Vauxhall tail light will ensure you get a quality part that fits the make and model of your car.

Vauxhall Insignia trivia

  • According to the website YouGov, the Vauxhall Insignia is the UK’s 85th most popular car, as well as being the 65th most famous. Fans of the car consistently describe it as comfortable, stylish, impressive, and fuel-efficient.
  • Although first used in the Astra, an updated version of Vauxhall’s IntelliLux system appeared in the Vauxhall Insignia. The system includes 32 LEDs in each headlight (which is more than double what it used to be). Those lights can even turn off automatically to avoid high-beaming other drivers!
  • The original design for the latest generation Vauxhall Insignia was based on a Monza concept from 2013.
  • Although the latest generation Vauxhall Insignia is larger than its predecessor, it has a little less storage space. The boot is now just 490-litres with the back seats in the upright position (but 1,450-litres when folded down).
  • The latest generation Vauxhall Insignia had a complete platform overhaul, and that resulted in them being 175kg lighter while also adding to the length.
