Vauxhall have revealed the all-new Insignia, which is known as the Insignia Grand Sport, ahead of it’s world premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Vauxhall say the Monza Concept was the inspiration with the interior and exterior design.
At the front, there is a prominent grille that sits lower than the outgoing model to create more of a stance. The LED matrix headlights are slimline which enhance the wide horizontal design of the front end.
The rear of the car has simple lines which highlight the double-wing LED lights that also help towards giving the car a wider look. The sleek body also help towards it being one of the most aerodynamic cars in its class drag factor of 0.26.
The interior also gets the simple yet high attention to detail treatment. The instruments on the centre console all face the driver and are easily reached. The frameless touchscreen of the IntelliLink infotainment system gives a more premium look and is also more intuitive to use. The extended wheelbase gives rear passengers more space.
The ergonomic seats offer side bolster, massage, memory and ventilation functions. The two outside seats in the back can come with the optional seat heating. The keyless “Open & Start” comes as standard on all trim levels.
Tech includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and wireless smartphone charging.
The Insignia Grand Sport will come with Vauxhall’s OnStar which offers services such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, WIFI hotspot and even able to make hotel room reservations.
The Insignia Grand Sport will come with a range of turbocharged engines and transmissions. The highly efficient eight-speed automatic ‘box is new addition to the transmission line-up.
They’ll be a range of driver assistance systems such as Head-up-Display, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Insignia Grand Sport will come with all-wheel drive which sees electrically controlled multi-plate clutches replacing the rear axle differential. When cornering, additional torque is transmitted to the outside rear wheel helping the Insignia Grand Sport to corner better.
