Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport - best family cars

With plenty of space in saloon and estate forms, the upmarket Insignia Grand Sport makes a great family car

Once the darling of repmobile fleets across the land, the Vauxhall Insignia always lacked the style and premium feel of some of its saloon car rivals. Happily, the car’s replacement, the Insignia Grand Sport, has transformed the dowdy Insignia into a sporty, stylish family car.

Vauxhall has given the new Insignia GS a bold look that's sure to turn heads - whether you choose the hatchback or Sports Tourer estate - while interior quality is on a par with rivals such as the VW Passat and Skoda Superb. Cabin space is just as good, too, with plenty of legroom in the back and comfortable seats all round.

The engine range is refined, punchy and economical, which will be attractive to family and business users alike, while the most powerful petrol and diesel engines will be perfect for towing, too. The Insignia GS is a firm favourite with us as it won the 2019 Auto Express Family Car of the Year.
