The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is a large estate that is a rival to cars like the Ford Mondeo Estate and Skoda Superb Estate.
It’s a smart-looking car with a neatly trimmed cabin, and it’s available with a range of premium features, including adaptive damping, bi-xenon lights and a modern-looking part-digital instrument cluster.
Engine options include turbocharged petrol and diesels, some of which are offered with automatic gearboxes, while an extensive range of trim levels makes it easy to find a version that suits you.
All versions of the Insignia are well equipped, however, but we’d recommend going for a Tech Line model. It represents relatively good value for money and includes sat-nav.
Ultimately, though, the Insignia is more about motorway comfort and stability than country-lane precision. The Mondeo can do both and is more refined and spacious, while the more upmarket-feeling Superb offers more power and equipment for a similar price.
