    Vehicle : 2.0l CDTi Bi-Turbo Insginia Sports Tourer

    Trim : Vx Line Nav Sri

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2014

    Default Insignia Sports Tourer



    Well, after waiting for it to arrive in the showroom, i finally had a ride in the V6 CDTi Sports Tourer today. And after driving the saloon, as you can expect it was similar in handling and gizmo's etc.

    BUT, and the BIG BUT is, the dealers say the boot is bigger......
    But i have to disagree and say that they are talking cobblers!

    The boot space is not very good and the body length to get stuff in the boot is shorter. I parked my Vec-C Estate next to it and the Vec-C is indeed bigger.

    Also, the look of the car is not to my taste.

    I was soooo looking forward to going for one of these, but alas... It's not for me anymore. I have had the 2.0 DTI, 1.9CDTi (150), V6 CDTi and the one i have now, the 1.9 CDTi (150) - All Estates by the way, but i won't be getting the Insignia Sports Tourer.

    I must say, it's not the car it's been touted as - I'm sadly disapointed.

    Hmm, that's interesting - particularly the space bit. I'd been hoping it was at least larger than the Signum in terms of boot space with the seats up whilst not necessarily as big as the Vec estate.

    I'll be keeping an eye on my dealers for one so that I can go and compare. If it doesn't meet my expectations then I'll be disappointed too as I really saw the ST as being the replacement for my Signum. It may end up being a Vec VXR estate then!

    Seeing this car in the flesh i would say it is around signum size, defiinately does'nt look as big as the vec estate, but it does look really nice, much nicer than the hathback.

    How was the space for the people in the back...? Have they gone along the same route as the Signum and sacrificed some boot space to give them more room? Or is it simply smaller...?

    And as for looks, you'd have to Irmscher it up to the max if you ask me...
