What’s in a name? Rather than call this load-lugging version of the Insignia an estate car, Vauxhall has gone with the far more exciting sounding Sports Tourer name. No doubt it's designed to make you think of mountain bikes and surf boards rather than shifting a chest of drawers, but the latest Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer could actually be ideal for all of the above because it has a bigger boot than ever.
The Sports Tourer is obviously based on the Insignia Grand Sport hatchback, and that means it's available with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, with power outputs anywhere between 108bhp and 256bhp. Depending on the engine you can have an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive, too.
Over the next few pages we'll look at everything from how the Sports Tourer drives, to what it’s like inside and how much it’ll cost to run. And, of course, how it compares to key rivals such as the estate versions of the Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb and Volkswagen Passat.
