Eco-friendly model joins the Insignia ST range
15 September 2009

Vauxhall has unveiled an Ecoflex model to its Insignia Sports Tourer range at the Frankfurt motor show.

The Vauxhall Insignia Ecoflex Sports Tourer has CO2 emissions of 139g/km and combined fuel economy of 53.7mpg. Vauxhall claims the Ecoflex Sports Tourer can travel up to 826 miles on a single tank of fuel.

The car uses the same 158bhp/280lb ft 2.0-litre CDTi unit found in the Ecoflex saloon and hatchback models. It can get from 0-60mph in 9.3sec and go on to reach a top speed of 134mph.

A raft of changes over the regular Sports Tourer model are featured, including modified front air intakes, a closed upper front grille, a lower ride height and low-resistance tyres.

Two underbody spoilers have also been added to help direct air over the rear axle, reducing drag and lift.

Prices start at £21,515 and it is on sale now.
