European buyers in the market for a good value non-premium midsize family car have a lot of good options to choose from.
Back in 2017, the Insignia was the third best-selling car in its class, trailing only the Skoda Superb and the VW Passat, and ahead of the Ford Mondeo, Renault Talisman, Toyota Avensis, Mazda6 and the previous-gen Peugeot 508.
While the Peugeot is sure to make a run for the segment crown in its latest incarnation, the Insignia’s popularity is unlikely to plummet, at least not to the point where it would lose too much ground to its current rivals.
Some of the reasons why so many European buyers like this car include the fact that it offers very solid value for money, it’s good to drive and it’s very comfortable, something Carwow points out in their review of the 2019 Grand Sport model.
Positives include the car’s rear leg room, trunk dimensions and light steering feel around town. As for the negatives, the visibility and rear headroom for taller passengers could be better and 2.0-liter diesel engine has a loud rattle.
Overall though, the Insignia Grand Sport deserves to be on your shortlist if you’re out for a family car. You might, however, try to get the best deal possible, seen as how there are newer alternatives in the market.
