Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer price revealed
The new Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is available now, priced from £25,349
The Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is available to order now, with prices starting from £25,349. The car made its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013, and rivals rugged estates like the Audi A4 Allroad and Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.
This price tag means the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is £5,000 cheaper than the A4 Allroad and £2,400 cheaper than the Passat Alltrack. There are two specifications to choose from, Country Tourer and Country Tourer Nav, with the higher-spec model costing from £26,499.
Standard equipment for the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer includes adaptive headlights that don’t blind oncoming drivers, a powered tailgate for easy luggage loading and parking sensors. Go for the Nav model and you get sat-nav, an 8-inch touchscreen display and a large display screen in front of the driver. The Country Tourer also gets four-wheel drive, higher ground clearance and a tougher look as standard.
The most recent facelift for the Vauxhall Insignia range is included on this new model, so it gets a fresh front grille, updated headlights and a set of new LED tail-lights. Protective cladding on the front and rear bumpers, around the wheelarches and below the doors (to prevent loose rocks from damaging the bodywork) is also included on this more rugged model.
A four-wheel-drive system is also included on both specifications, which features a clever system that sends power to the wheels that need it most at any given time when off-roading. To improve economy, the car is front-wheel drive when on normal roads.
Two engines are available with this new model: the 163bhp 2.0-litre CDTi and a more powerful 193bhp 2.0-litre BiTurbo. The faster engine comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox, while the lower-powered diesel gets a choice of manual or automatic.
The new Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is available to order now, with deliveries starting in January 2014.
