    Default Vectra C versus Insignia Tourer

    At the moment I have a Vectra C on an 06 plate, fabulous for carting the two kids, the dog and all the gear you have for every military operation we go on!

    But I am hankering after a Sports Tourer and wondering if anyone was noticed a really dramatic loss of space? Thanks in advance

    if you have a look on http://www.insignia-enthusiast.org there is a chap with a fully loade3d sports tourer and he has comented on a slight reduction in load capacity.

    Enjoy

    Load capacity on the Insignia Tourer is a bit less than on the Vectra estate, certainly the most noticeable area is access the the rear, with the tailgate open the access to the boot is certainly narrower than on the Vectra.

    In Sports Tourer (ST) guise, the Insignia offers 540 litres of luggage space with the rear seats in place and up to the tonneau cover (including a shallow under-floor storage area which is standard on all models) – an increase of 10 litres over the voluminous Vectra estate.

    It is only when the rear seats are folded down that the Insignia falls short of the Vectra (1,510 litres compared to 1,850).

    one of the reasons we stuck with the C. The insignia didn't seem anywhere near as big as the C in the boot or in the rear seats

    Hi, thanks everyone for the feedback, maybe I can sell it that with the roofbox we could do it! Always manage to fill the car and the roofbox on holidays though...

    I think I might be the guy Blues and Twos refers to
    Having lived for 6 years with the Vec C Elite estate with hardly a problem we changed a couple of months ago, like you I have a need for a bit of space for all our boat stuff. At first I did notice it and thought it was going to be an issue but don’t even think about the slightly smaller space now as we have compensated and pay a bit more attention to loading stuff. It’s a small price to pay for the galactic style improvement and equipment level, I love the thing and so do most people who see it, mind you it’s a bit different from most STs.
