Let me first start by saying that I think this is probably the most gorgeous sedan ever. OK, I might be exaggerating, I know. But seriously now, just look at those lines, at that color, at those wheels. I found everything to be simply stunning, seriously.
Of course, after carefully taking into consideration all the facts upon actually driving the car, some downsides also began to appear. First of all, I have to remind you guys that I'm switching boyfriends on a weekly basis, which means that I have plenty of time to also cruise around with my girlfriends.
Now, having a car like the one we tested wouldn't be very appropriate especially since two of my shopping friends were in our high-school volley team and another one is a little bit claustrophobic. Translation: they're either way too tall or hate enclosed spaces to ride with me in the Insignia. And I can't leave them at home when I'm hitting the mall since we're like four peas in a pod – we've known each other since kindergarten.
So, interior head room is not exactly great, what else? Well, I also broke a nail trying to find my way between those tens of buttons on the center console. I was living under the impression that car manufacturers were simplifying car controls to the point that a drastically reduction in buttons and knobs was actually becoming a trend. Hmm, apparently it's not a trend at Opel, since the Insignia I drove was practically filled with buttons.
On the good side, like I said, I really liked its looks. It seems very classy. The fuel consumption doesn't bother me that much since there are lots of gas stations on my way to the mall, so the only quarrels I have with the Insignia 2.0 Turbo 4x4 are the cramped interior and the fact that there are way too many buttons to distract your attention.
