What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Insignia estate?
The Ford Mondeo is an excellent estate car, with plenty of space up front and a large boot. The load lip is quite low, so it's helpful for those who have dogs. Rear leg space isn’t as good as it is in the Insignia Grand Sport, but the Mondeo has a strong range of petrol and diesel engines to choose from and remains a quiet and comfortable cruiser on the motorway.
If you want the most interior space for your money, then the Skoda Superb Estate would be, well, a superb choice. There are lots of efficient diesel engines and the 148bhp 1.4-litre petrol is remarkably capable, too. Besides its generous rear leg room, the boot is enormous.
The Mazda 6 estate has always been in the shadow of cars such as the Insignia. It doesn’t offer quite the same level of equipment as the Insignia but, thanks to sharp styling, a well-built interior and an excellent infotainment system, the 6 is well worth a look.
If you want something with a touch of class but don’t have the money to run to a Mercedes-Benz, BMW or Audi, then the Volkswagen Passat Estate could be the car for you. There’s a huge boot, efficient diesel engines and it’s very quiet and stable on the motorway.
