2018 Opel Insignia Country Tourer
The new top-of-the-range Opel models, the Insignia Grand Sport and the Insignia Sports Tourer have only just celebrated their world premieres in Geneva – but the dream duo is already set to become a triumphant trio. Just as for the previous generation, the Insignia will be available as an adventurer with all-wheel drive and offroad appeal. Its name: The new Opel Insignia Country Tourer. Available to order from June, it will celebrate its premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA, September 14 to 24) and will be at dealers shortly afterwards. The all-rounder is the ideal choice for fans of winter sports and the countryside but also for everybody who appreciates a very individual impression.
The new Opel Insignia Country Tourer impresses with the same virtues as its Grand Sport and Sports Tourer siblings – it is spacious and considerably lighter than the outgoing version thanks an all-new architecture. It also comes with a wide range of innovative technologies, just as a true flagship should. Furthermore, it captivates with its very own country-style charm: all-round black protective cladding and silver front and rear skid plates give the newcomer a rugged offroad appearance. Customers who prefer an even more individual vehicle can also tailor it thanks to the Opel Exclusive concept, which provides an unlimited choice of colors.
Engine options have not been detailed yet, but expect a mix of the 1.6 and 2.0-liter diesel units. Opel speaks of the all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring that’s already been introduced on the regular models. However, the new Country Tourer might eventually have a FWD version, just like its predecessor and some of its rivals.
