We’ve had this Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer on the Practical Caravan long-term fleet. It’s a handy 4×4 estate that promises go-anywhere toughness and practicality. In this guise, it’s heavy and powerful enough to tow a wide range of tourers, while its four-wheel drive should make it capable in all weathers.

We’ve spent a lot of time towing with other versions of the Insignia. The top-spec Country Tourer is clearly the most expensive of the lot, with a price tag in excess of £30,000. Is that too much to pay for Vauxhall’s family estate? Or do the added capability of four-wheel drive and the high kerbweight and powerful engine justify the price? Let’s find out what tow car credentials this Country Tourer has.
