It feels like the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer range makes a vigorous effort to undercut its counterparts with maximum value for money. Obviously, no model couldn’t do it better than a fresh 2017 Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer Design Nav 1.5 Turbo Ecotec 140.
The vehicle’s turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder powerplant offers quite respectable performance, claiming up to 184lb ft of torque and 138bhp. It ensures 47.1mpg combined as well as CO2 emissions of 136g/km. The 1.5-litre 2017 Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer Design Nav 1.5 Turbo Ecotec 140 is capable of carrying payloads of about 593kg. Towing an unbraked 730kg trailer is real too.
As the rest of the range, it features a moderately stiff four-link rear suspension setup. By the way, unlike the rest of the range, the models associated with the Design and Design Nav don’t come with standard-fit electric folding rear seats. It’s an optional feature.
