How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s loads of space for two adults to sit side by side without fear of knocking elbows, and the seats go back enough for long-legged drivers. Head room won’t be a problem, either, since the seats can go nice and low.

Storage is good, too. The front doors have generously sized pockets that can take a small bottle of water and plenty of other bits and pieces, and there’s a spacious cubby under the centre armrest. In front of that is a pair of cupholders and another lidded cubby with enough space for a smartphone.

There’s no flat-folding front passenger seat to enable you to carry really long loads – a function that is available on the Superb.

Boot space

Compared with the rival Ford Mondeo Estate, the Insignia Sports Tourer’s boot looks pretty spacious – its square shape means you can squeeze in a few more bags of shopping with the seats up or down. It also has a flush floor with a low load height which leaves no internal load lip at the edge of the tailgate opening: a boon when loading heavy items.
