Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer: SUV-style estate

Vauxhall's range-topping Insignia Country Tourer got its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. 

This new model features a sophisticated all-wheel drive system plus an extra 20mm ground clearance and larger tyres. With additional body protection compared to the standard Insignia estate, the Country Tourer should be able to shrug off snowy British winters and cope with mild off-roading.

Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer: all-wheel drive

The intelligent all-wheel drive system can transfer power between front and rear axles, as well as from side to side, to ensure maximum traction on slippery surfaces. Under normal driving, however, power goes only to the front wheels which helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

The Insignia Country Tourer will be available with two 2.0-litre diesel engines – a 195bhp twin-turbo motor with a six-speed automatic gearbox and a 165bhp variant with the option of either a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.

Prices and equipment details will be released soon. Vauxhall says that the Country Tourer will be available to buy later in 2013, alongside an updated version of the Insignia VXR SuperSport.
