What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Insignia hatchback?
The Ford Mondeo is another big car, with plenty of space up front and a large boot. Rear leg space isn’t as good as it is in the Insignia Grand Sport, but head room is better. There is a strong range of petrol and diesel engines to choose from and it remains a quiet and comfortable cruiser on the motorway.
If you want to start your own limo firm, the Skoda Superb would be, well, a superb choice. There are lots of efficient diesel engines and the 148bhp 1.4-litre petrol is remarkably capable. Besides its generous rear leg room, the boot is enormous.
The Mazda 6 has always been in the shadow of cars such as the Insignia but, thanks to sharp styling, a well-built interior and an excellent infotainment system, it is well worth a look.
