Vauxhall Insignia and Sports Tourer sizes and dimensions guide

April 12, 2016 by

The Vauxhall Insignia combines excellent value for money with low running costs making it a good choice for families and business buyers alike. It’s also available as a spacious Sports Tourer estate if you need a little more room. To help you decide if it’s right for you, we’ve pulled together data for the Insignia hatchback and Sports Tourer in our handy dimensions guide. If either the hatchback or the estate sounds like the perfect car for you, our Vauxhall Insignia configurator and Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer configurator can help you get your new car for a great price.

Vauxhall Insignia and Sports Tourer exterior dimensions

The Insignia is by no means a small car – at 4.84 metres long, it’s slightly shorter than its main rival, the Ford Mondeo, but noticeably longer than the 4.62-metre BMW 3 Series. Surprisingly, the Insignia is wider than a Range Rover Sport, so you might find small garages are a slightly tight squeeze.

Length (Sports Tourer) 4,842mm (4,913mm)
Width including mirrors 2,084mm
Height (Sports Tourer) 1,498mm (1,513mm)

Vauxhall Insignia and Sports Tourer interior dimensions and boot space

The Insignia has plenty of space inside for passengers but there is a sizeable transmission tunnel in the middle of the rear floor, so seating three abreast might be tricky – the central perch is only really suitable for kids.

In terms of boot space, the Insignia hatchback is respectable – its 530-litre capacity is 20 shy if the Ford Mondeo but 30 litres larger than the Mazda 6 Saloon’s. The hatchback opening means that loading luggage is nice and easy, too. The Sports Tourer doesn’t offer much additional space but, if you’re happy to load luggage above the level of the windows, you should be able to fit in considerably more.

Vauxhall Insignia and Sports Tourer fuel tank and turning circle

The Insignia has a 70-litre fuel tank allowing the most frugal ecoFlex versions to potentially cover 1118 miles between fill-ups. Its 11.4-metre turning circle is similar to other vehicles of this size.

Vauxhall Insignia and Sports Tourer weight and towing limits

Despite its compact front-wheel drive layout, the Insignia’s size means it isn’t the lightest of cars. If you choose the V6-powered VXR model with four-wheel drive, it’ll tip the scales at 1,825kg.

Towing limits are respectable so it probably won’t be an uncommon sight to see an Insignia towing a caravan along the motorway during the summer months. Diesel models excel in this respect, especially when fitted with an automatic gearbox.
