The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is an excellent motorway cruiser and offers practicality in a quality offering. The styling is attractive and the interior impresses.
Of the petrol and diesel engines to choose from there's a useful 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 140 bhp and will return around 51 mpg. A more powerful 2.0 litre engine produces 250 bhp and there’s also a 2.8 litre V6 available for the VXR model. Perhaps the best choice will be the new 1.6 litre diesel engine which is part of the firm's 'Whisper' line-up which is a quiet unit, even at speed it can barely be heard and will return around 72 mpg. Fuel economy for the engine range stretches from 34 mpg to 72 mpg.
The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is up against some stiff competition but there's a lot to recommend what is a stylish and practical family estate. It easy to live with and great to drive around town and on winding country roads though it really feels at home on long motorway journeys where the comfort levels will impress. There's also plenty space for five adults to be carried in comfort. The interior has been well-designed and made with premium materials and there's also a lot of kit fitted as standard including cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic lights and DAB radio. The Insignia Sports Tourer has plenty of safety equipment and there are options for adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automated parking and traffic sign recognition.
For those who need the extra boot size, they will enjoy 540 litres which expands to a more useful 1,530 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.
Essentially, the Insignia Sports Tourer delivers an impressive package for those wanting a practical estate car with a lot of equipment and a comfortable interior.
