How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

When you’re sitting up front, the Vauxhall Insignia feels like a big car. There’s plenty of width, so two adults can sit side by side without brushing shoulders and the seats go back far enough for those with long legs. Head room is unlikely to pose a problem for any but the tallest, either.

Storage options are plentiful, with generously sized pockets in the front doors that can each hold a small bottle of water and plenty of other bits and pieces, while there’s a spacious cubbyhole under the centre armrest. In front of the gearlever is a pair of cupholders and another lidded cubbyhole with enough space for a phone.

Seat folding and flexibility

There’s nothing particularly clever about the Vauxhall Insignia seats. While the driver gets height and lumbar adjustment, you’ll need to jump up to SRi Nav trim or higher to get it for the front passenger. 

The rear seats have a typical 60/40 split fold mechanism in SE Nav models. You get a handier 40/20/40 split and the added convenience of boot-mounted electric release switches to fold them with ease on SRi Nav and up.
