Drive down any given motorway for five minutes and we can almost guarantee that you’ll see at least one version of the original Vauxhall Insignia. It may not have wiped the floor with its rivals, but was cheap, frugal and well equipped – just what fleet managers wanted.

But, under constant pressure from talented rivals such as the Skoda Superb and Ford Mondeo, and the threat of premium competition from BMW and Audi, the time came to head back to the drawing board. The Insignia Grand Sport is the result, a car that takes the familiar Insignia formula, adds even more interior space and more equipment, and is somehow even cheaper to buy, with entry-level models costing only as much as a high-end small hatchback.

But the big question is: does it have more to offer than acres of space for a bargain basement price? After all, the old Insignia’s diesel engines were gruff, and it was never particularly great to drive.
