Car reviews - Opel - Insignia - Select Sports Tourer
The stylish Insignia Sports Tourer is a top alternative to family and premium wagons
2 Nov 2012
Midsized wagon buyers, be glad Opel has decided to bring in the arrestingly handsome Insignia Sports Tourer.
Tested here in top-line Select CDTi diesel guise, it not only provides a viable alternative to the Volkswagen Passat and Ford Mondeo, but also gives more expensive premium Euros like the Volvo V60/V70 and Audi A4 a run for their money.
There’s also something here for disenfranchised Saab owners too.
But we don’t think the most expensive model is the best Insignia available, due to a noisy engine and hard ride.

Family Tree: Insignia
Unlike the (for a time Australian-made) JR/JS Vectra, the fully imported ZC was only solf in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback guises, with the majority powered by a 108kW/203Nm 2.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.
