2.0 Bi-Turbo D 4X4 Nav Auto
This 207bhp diesel engine may have four-wheel drive and 354lb ft of torque - so has little trouble getting this big car moving and is great for towing - but it doesn’t feel that much quicker than the 168bhp version. Meanwhile, fuel economy and emissions are noticeably down on the lower-powered diesels and disappointing next to equivalently powerful rivals. As a result, we’d avoid it.
2.0 Turbo D
Performance is brisk but emissions are disappointing when compared with similarly potent rivals. Unless you’re towing or want the soft-roader Country Tourer version (in which case it is your best option), we’d avoid it.
Our pick
1.6 Turbo D ecoTec [136]
This higher-powered version of the 1.6 diesel unit is noticeably punchier than the 108bhp option, but it has a narrower power band. Even so, the extra shove will be useful if you have a boot full of stuff.
1.6 Turbo D ecoTec
We had worried that this little diesel might struggle in the Insignia Sports Tourer, but it’s actually a flexible thing that is just about quick enough. It’s the cheapest to run but may struggle if you regularly have a full car.
2.0T 4X4 [260] Nav Auto
Only available in top Elite Nav and GSI Nav trims, this 256bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol comes exclusively with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. It’s brisk (0-60mph takes 7.1sec) if you work it hard, but the 168bhp diesel feels more effortless to drive.
1.5T [165]
In effect, this is the same as the entry-level engine but with a little more power. It’s flexible despite its small size and there’s only a small emissions, fuel economy and price penalty. Just remember that a diesel will be much more economical if you’re doing lots of miles.
1.5T ecoTec
This little 1.5-litre turbo petrol is the cheapest engine but still promises reasonable pace. Even so, we’d be more tempted to pay a little extra for its more powerful brother if you want a cheap motor.
