    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0cdti 160bhp

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 92274

    Default comparing the vectra estate to the insignia sport tourer

    despite the new insignia sport tourer being 3.7 inches longer than the vectra estate the insignia is quite a lot smaller in side in all dimensions

    vectra load area
    length 2046mm
    min width 1060mm
    max width 1079mm
    height 850mm
    max floor length (seats up) 1175mm

    insignia sport estate
    length 1908mm
    max width 1060mm
    height 684mm
    max floor length (seats up) 1086mm

    now here is the puzzle,the vectra estate has a bigger load area than the insignia but how can vauxhall claim a larger capacity in litres with the seats up and under the load blind?
    vectra estate 530litres
    isignia estate 540 litres

    yet with the seats down the vectra as you would expect is a lot larger
    vectra 1850 litres
    insignia 1510 litres

    Maybe if you could just fill the load area with water, the total
    volume capacity in litres would be more in the Insignia ! It also
    depends on how useable the space is !

    Perhaps the seats are taller so the load cover is higher, thus giving more space

    looking at the brochure that is the only reason why the under cover cargo capacity is greater,i did not spot it at first and was only realy noticable when the 2 brochures were put together

    I hope they have returned to the old way with folding seats that when you put the seats down you lift the lower cushion. It is one fault with the vectra C as things end up in the rear footwell and there is nothing to stack against only the front seats.

    I suppose my dog could toss a coin and decide whether to have the seats down and fall in the footwell under braking or alternately sit in the boot area. I suppose as he suffered a fractured spine 12 months ago whilst travelling in the boot area. Falling in the footwell might be the better option. Someone hit the back of the car and he sits with his back against the tailgate.
