What's the used Vauxhall Insignia estate like?

There was a time when the estate car was all the rage, but demand for higher-riding SUVs has eroded its popularity. To combat this, Vauxhall gave the Insignia Sports Tourer a name that bore no association with the word estate and gave the car some bolder styling to make it stand out.

To a certain degree, it worked. The Insignia Sports Tourer was withdrawn from sale in 2020, but it is now a popular car on the used forecourts, thanks to its practicality, high equipment levels and its great value for money.

The primary objective of a big load-lugger is to carry lots of stuff and, fortunately, the Insignia ST has a square-shaped boot opening and there’s only a shallow bumper to lift items over. Luggage capacity is impressive and it will swallow five people's holiday gear with ease, although rivals such as the Skoda Superb Estate and Volkswagen Passat Estate have bigger cargo areas with the seats up or down.

That said, the Insignia ST hits back with generous levels of standard equipment. Every version comes with lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition – a thoughtful touch since some rivals only offered these as options – along with cruise control, automatic lights and a 7.0in infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SRi adds 17in alloy wheels, auto wipers and dual-zone climate control; SRi VX-Line gets bigger alloy wheels and a discreet bodykit, heated steering wheel and a 4.2in colour driver's information display. Tech Line has similar toys to SRi cars, just without the sporty trimmings, but adds front and rear parking sensors. Elite has brighter LED headlights and an upgraded stereo. GSI is the sportiest Insignia ST and gets bigger Brembo brakes and adaptive drive modes.

Any version with 'Nav' added to the end of it will come with sat-nav.
