The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is well equipped and can be cheap to buy, but it’s not quite as spacious, refined or efficient as its rivalsget the best price
Trim: Tech Line Nav
This would be our choice. Tech Line Nav models are around the same price as SRi Nav models, just without some of the sporty details. But you still get 17in alloy wheels, auto wipers, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, rear USB sockets, driver's seat height adjustment and in-built sat-nav. Well worth considering if you want a few more luxuries.

The Peugeot 308 SW has some efficient engines and a large boot...
The Clubman’s a spacious and entertaining car...
