Based on new architecture, this new generation Sports Tourer is 200kg lighter than the model it replaces, and offers 100 litres more boot space. It gets an all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring, as well as a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
It comes with Vauxhall’s latest IntelliLink system with a touchscreen and three rows of buttons, as well as OnStar. The Insignia will offer a new ‘personal assistant’ service that enables the driver or passengers to book a hotel through OnStar. It also gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and wireless phone charging is also available.
It’s available with LED matrix lighting, lane keep assist, head-up display, as well as heated seats in the front and rear, along with a heated windscreen. Vauxhall also says it’s the first model to get an active aluminium bonnet which it says improves pedestrian protection.
