OVERVIEW & MARKET
– Third body style to be added to Insignia range
– Powerful design and innovative engineering coupled with increased practicality
– New turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine now available with all body styles
Luton – Despite the current economic malaise, Vauxhall’s 2009 European Car of the Year has been a resounding success, bucking a downward sales trend with more than 15,000 orders taken in the first month of the car reaching dealer showrooms in the UK.
Enhancing the range still further on April 10 is the Sports Tourer model, the third significant body style in the Insignia’s line-up and the first new model to be added since the car’s launch.
Retaining the hatch and saloon’s rakish, but graceful silhouette, the Sports Tourer is available with all the class-leading innovation found in the current range, such as FlexRide, Intelligent AFL and Adaptive 4X4, but with enhanced practicality, thanks to a 540-litre load area with the rear seats up. Dropping the 60:40 split rear seats converts the Sports Tourer into an even more capacious load-lugger, with a volume of up to 1530- litres.
Wrapping this practicality in a sporty, premium body was a challenge set down to the Sports Tourer’s designers. One of their many solutions was to create a distinctive tailgate with large, fully integrated tail lights that curve around the sides of the car giving a cohesive and unique appearance in this class, while keeping the same wheelbase as hatch and saloon models.
Coinciding with the Sports Tourer’s launch is the introduction of the sixth engine to the Insignia range, the 180PS 1.6 Turbo. Available on all front- wheel-drive models, (apart from ‘S’ trim) the new turbocharged petrol engine emphasises Vauxhall’s increasing commitment to smaller capacity, forced-induction units, which provide exceptional performance combined with reduced fuel consumption and C02 emissions.
The 1.6 Turbo joins the 1.8, 2.0T and 2.8T V6 in the Insignia’s petrol engine range, with the 2.0 CDTi 130PS and 160PS diesels also carrying across to the Sports Tourer. All engines meet the latest Euro 5 emissions standards.
The Sports Tourer’s newly developed chassis, designed to offer a high level of safety and comfort, can be enhanced with the innovative FlexRide system which provides drivers with a choice of three dynamic settings – Standard, Tour and Sport - depending upon their driving style and the prevailing conditions. In addition, the Sports Tourer is available with a choice of two base chassis: Sport, which is standard on all SRi models; and Comfort, which is standard on S, Exclusiv, SE and Elite models.
“Buyers in the mid-size estate market are craving more practicality than ever before to cater for families and lifestyle activities,” said Andy Gilson, Vauxhall’s Marketing Director. “But they’re not content to compromise on style and running costs, which is why the Insignia Sports Tourer is such an ideal choice in this growing sector.”
The UK has traditionally been a strong market for estate cars, which is why Vauxhall is predicting that more than 15 per cent of all Insignia sales will be attributed to this model. Like the hatch and saloon, most buyers will opt for the SRi model, with SE and Elite also accounting for a major proportion of Sports Tourer sales.
Inevitably, with its highly competitive C02 rating of 159g/km and low fuel consumption, the 2.0 CDTi 130PS and 160PS engines will continue to prove popular with private buyers and fleets alike, accounting for around 69 per cent of all sales. However, the new 1.6 Turbo engine will be a significant addition, appealing to those buyers who still prefer the outright performance of a petrol-fuelled car, but who are conscious of the emissions and fuel penalties this often brings.
BODY DESIGN & INTERIOR FEATURES
– Most aerodynamic Vauxhall estate ever produced
– Insignia’s design cues retained without compromise
– High volume luggage compartment, seats up or down
While designers wanted to retain the Insignia hatch and saloon’s trademark styling cues, they were equally keen to give the Sports Tourer its own identity. “This vehicle has its own individual personality – it’s not simply an estate version of the saloon or hatch,” said Mark Adams, the Brit- born Vice President of GM Europe Design. “In fact, all the bodywork aft of the B-pillar is unique to the Sports Tourer. We’ve also ensured that its design combines the sculptural artistry and technical precision of the other Insignias.”
The result is a dynamic-looking, sporty estate which elegantly conceals its high degree of functionality. To achieve this, designers re-interpreted a number of elements. They pulled the ‘wraparound’ tailgate deep in to the car’s flanks and punctuated it with large, distinctive and fully integrated tail lights. A chrome strip holding the refreshed Vauxhall Griffin runs across the tailgate, accentuating its deep curve, and the whole unit integrates with the rear bumper giving the car an up-market, classy appearance.
In profile, the Sports Tourer’s roofline and rear cabin taper down dramatically towards the rear of the car, accentuated by its roof rails. The roof spoiler effectively elongates the roofline, optimising airflow and reducing both drag and rear-end lift, while the two vertical fins which bridge the spoiler and tail lights ensure that the saloon’s sporty proportions are maintained.
These clever design elements mean that airflow is sharply cut off at the rear of the Sports Tourer, again reducing lift, adding stability and also contributing to the overall Cd value of just below 0.30, making this the most aerodynamic Vauxhall estate ever built.
Safety features were also paramount in the design brief. The tail lights have been intentionally mounted quite high up on the tailgate, protecting them in the event of a minor collision. The plastic cover between the lights and the bumper can absorb small knocks without a problem and is not expensive to replace in the event of a more serious accident.
Unique in this class are the Sports Tourer’s secondary tail lights, which are exposed when the tailgate is lifted. Incorporating brake, tail and indicator lights, these units allow other road users to see the rear of the car if, for example, items are being unloaded from the luggage compartment at night, or in poor visibility conditions.
The Sports Tourer’s dynamic look encapsulates an interior that offers ample room for five occupants. It also gives rear seat passengers plenty of headroom, combined with a seats-up luggage volume of 540-litres. While the wheelbase is identical to that of the Insignia hatch and saloon’s (2740mm), the Sports Tourer’s cargo length has grown by 80mm to 1910mm with the rear seats folded flat, allowing a maximum capacity of 1530-litres. The overall length of the Sports Tourer is 4908mm, 78mm longer than the hatch and saloon.
Standard on all SE and Elite models is a power tailgate that can be electrically opened and closed via a button on the key fob, or by controls mounted on the inside of the driver’s door and at the base of the tailgate itself. The system features a programmable opening height that prevents damage to the tailgate in garages with low ceilings.
Standard on all Sports Tourer models is a retractable luggage compartment cover and DualFloor luggage compartment, which incorporates an under-floor storage area. All models, apart from S-spec cars, also get a 12-volt auxiliary power socket in the luggage compartment and silver-effect roof rails (S models get black items). Dark-tinted Solar Protect glass is standard in all but S and Exclusiv models, while a vertical load- restraining net is optional across the range.
Also optional on all Sports Tourers is Vauxhall’s FlexOrganiser that separates and secures cargo loads. This complements the Insignia’s already vast array of trays and storage areas, including compartments in the front doors that can accommodate a 1.5-litre bottle, a large glove compartment and a closed cubby for occupants’ valuables. Storage compartments on the back of the front seats offer additional space for maps and books.
The seats, shared with the Insignia hatch and saloon, feature a wide range of adjustment – not just for seat travel and recline – but height and 4-way lumbar adjustment too, in addition to the reach- and rake-adjustable steering column. An active ventilation system is available as an option with the Ergonomic Sports Seats (SRi models only), which also provides four- way pneumatic lumbar support, additional tilt adjustment and ergonomic seat contours. The Sports seats have received a much coveted seal of approval from ARG, an independent European panel of experts and physicians.
– New 1.6 Turbo petrol brings total to six engines for Sports Tourer
– All engines meet latest Euro 5 emissions standards
– Broad power range from 140PS to 260PS
With the latest addition of the 1.6 Turbo petrol unit, the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer is now available with a choice of six engines – four petrol and two diesel - all of which meet stringent Euro 5 emission s standards. Each engine is highly competitive in terms of CO2 and fuel consumption, and buyers have a broad choice of power outputs and configurations, ranging from a 1.8-litre 140PS in-line four to a 2.8-litre turbocharged V6 producing 260PS.
In addition to the above engines, this Autumn a 190PS BiTurbo engine will be available in the range and will be the first diesel to power a four- wheel-drive Insignia. The existing 2.0 CDTi 160 unit will also be used in the eagerly awaited Insignia ecoFLEX, which promises low C02 emissions without any significant loss of performance. Both new engines will be available in the Sports Tourer range, as well as in the existing hatch and saloon models.
Apart from the auto-only 260PS V6 model, each engine in the Sports Tourer range is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, with all but the 1.8-litre and 1.6 Turbo petrol models being available with the optional six-speed automatic transmission. Adaptive 4X4 is standard on all V6 models, and certain 2.0T models.
1.8i 16v VVT ECOTEC-4
The entry level petrol engine is the four-cylinder 1.8 ECOTEC recently introduced on other models in the Vauxhall range. It produces 140PS at 6300rpm and maximum torque of 175Nm at 3800rpm. Technical highlights of the four-valve per cylinder unit include variable camshaft phasing, a two-phase intake control pipe, and a new magnetic crankshaft sensor – one of many ways in which Vauxhall has worked to reduce the weight of its engines.
While the 1.8 ECOTEC weighs in at just 118kgs – 20 per cent less than its predecessor – extensive bracing of the head and block has resulted in greater rigidity and structural strength.
Double cam phasing enables variable valve control times, which in turn allows the engine to adapt to various speeds and cylinder charges. The benefits are higher performance, better torque over a wide rev-range, lower emissions (186g/km for the Sports Tourer 1.8), lower fuel consumption and reduced engine noise.
1.6i 16v Turbo ECOTEC-4
The new 1.6 Turbo is launched as part of Vauxhall’s downsizing strategy, which aims to achieve higher performance by increasing the efficiency of smaller engines with the help of state-of-the-art technology. Like the Insignia’s 2.0 Turbo engine, the 1.6 Turbo rivals the performance, power and torque of engines with a larger capacity, but consumes considerably less fuel.
With a maximum power output of 180PS at 5500rpm, the 1.6 Turbo propels the Sports Tourer from 0-60mph in 8.7 seconds, yet achieves a Combined fuel consumption of 35.8mpg and C02 emissions of 186g/km – slightly less than the 1.8 engine, despite its smaller capacity and additional performance.
The 1.6 Turbo Sports Tourer is also immensely driveable, thanks to the engine’s 230Nm of torque being available from just 2200rpm right through to 5500rpm. Beyond this, the standard overboost system delivers a further 15 per cent of torque (up to 266Nm) as required.
The integration of the turbocharger in the cast exhaust manifold – a typical Vauxhall feature – optimises weight-saving and ensures rapid throttle response.
2.0i 16v Turbo ECOTEC-4
The 2.0 Turbo is new in the Vauxhall mid-size class segment. The 220PS direct-injection engine is of all-aluminium construction and generates 350Nm of torque from 2000 to 4000rpm, with twin balancer shifts to ensure smooth running. Like the 1.6 Turbo, this engine illustrates Vauxhall’s downsizing policy, and is comparable in performance with five- and six- cylinder cars, yet has lower fuel consumption and emissions.
Fitted with this engine, the Sports Tourer can accelerate from 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds (7.6 secs for auto) and achieve a top speed of 147mph, yet still return 31.4mpg on the Combined cycle.
The 2.0 Turbo’s direct petrol injection system contributes to the engine’s efficiency, ensuring a more thorough combustion of the fuel/air mixture. In addition, a twin-scroll turbocharger is employed, with its pulsing gas streams optimising gas flow and allowing a build up of pressure from as early as 1400rpm, providing more immediate acceleration.
Fitted with cast aluminium pistons mated via forged rods to a forged crankshaft, the 2.0 Turbo is available with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
2.8i V6 24v Turbo ECOTEC
The most powerful engine in the Sports Tourer range is the 2.8 V6 Turbo, which develops 260PS and 350Nm of torque between 1900 and 4500rpm. It has a wide array of high-tech features: a classic cylinder angle of 60 degrees and overhead camshafts driven by double chains; a variable valve control and a four-bearing crankshaft made from micro-alloy forged steel – a material commonly used in racing engines.
The advanced construction of the V6 includes details such as friction- reducing, coated pistons. These are provided with hard-anodised ring- grooves for longer life, run in cast iron sleeves that are cooled by oil spray. Sinter-forged steel conrods, outlet valves filled with sodium for improved cooling and an oil sump die-cast in aluminium for extra rigidity also illustrate the advanced overall design of the engine.
The V6 Turbo’s performance is as impressive as its specification suggests. Some 90 per cent of the maximum 350Nm of torque is generated at only 1500rpm and the peak value is available between 1900 and 4500rpm. All V6 Turbos come as standard with six-speed automatic transmission and Adaptive 4X4.
2.0 CDTi 16v ECOTEC-4 turbo diesel (130 & 160PS)
The new-generation Vauxhall 2.0-litre diesel engines in the Sports Tourer feature more power and torque, as well as excellent fuel economy. Available with either 130 or 160PS outputs, both units meet Euro 5 emission levels and come with maintenance-free diesel particulate filters. The 160PS will also be used to power the upcoming Insignia ecoFLEX model, available in the UK very soon.
Both engines are exceptionally economical, and when fitted with the standard six-speed manual transmission (a six-speed auto is available at extra cost) achieve 47.9mpg on the Combined cycle. Despite this, the Sports Tourer 2.0 CDTi 160 will accelerate from 0-60mph in 9.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 132mph.
Both 2.0 CDTi engines have two overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, and common-rail, multiple fuel direct injection, together with a variable geometry turbocharger for a rapid throttle response from low rpm. Thanks to the large 70-litre fuel tank, both diesel models have a range of approximately 750 miles, based on the Combined fuel cycle.
– Sports Tourer set to achieve same excellent dynamics as Insignia hatch and saloon
– Innovative FlexRide system allows personalised settings
– Class-leading Adaptive 4X4 provides optimal traction
For the Sports Tourer, Vauxhall has retained the same, all-new sophisticated chassis that underpins the Insignia hatch and saloon. However, since the Sports Tourer has a slightly higher roll-centre and a higher payload capability – features typical of an estate car - the challenge for Vauxhall’s engineers was to maintain the ride, handling and body control characteristics which have won the hatch and saloon so much praise.
While the suspension design has remained the same for both base chassis (Sport and Comfort) used in the Sports Tourer range, spring and anti-roll bar settings have been modified to match the saloon/hatch’s dynamic performance. For example, in the case of the anti-roll bars, larger items are used providing a further 50Nm/degree of roll resistance.
Apart from these minor modifications, the Insignia’s set up remains unchanged. Its MacPherson strut front suspension has dual path top mountings in the body structure turrets, separating the transfer of spring and damper loadings. To reduce unsprung weight, the combined steering knuckle and strut carrier is made from aluminum, and the anti-roll bar from hollow section steel.
Steering and lower suspension arms are attached through two mountings to a substantial front sub-frame, which is bolted via four bushings to the front structure’s longitudinal members. This isolated mounting technique helps reduce the transfer of road shocks and noise to the cabin. The hydraulic damping of the rear arm mounting also adds to ride comfort.
The rear suspension comprises an independent, four-link layout, with the second lower link in aluminum. For all-wheel-drive applications, a lower H- arm is used. The bushes in the rear-most arms are hydraulically damped to help prevent road shocks and vibrations from being transmitted through the steering wheel.
The new FlexRide system enables drivers to choose a chassis setup that matches their own particular driving style. In addition to the Standard ride setting, FlexRide enables the driver to select a relaxed (Tour) setting or a firmer suspension set-up (Sport) by pressing one of two buttons on the instrument panel. Deactivating the Sport or Tour mode returns the ride to the Standard setting. In all modes, the chassis management system automatically adapts damping in real time to the driving and road conditions.
In Sport mode, FlexRide not only provides stiffer damping, but also swifter throttle response. It also changes the valving in the Variable Effort Steering (VES), raises the shift-points of the automatic transmission to a higher rpm and adjusts the Adaptive 4X4 system for more rear-wheel drive. In Sport mode, the Intelligent AFL system reacts more quickly, and the lighting on the instrument panel changes from white to red to add to the driving experience.
In the customisation menu, accessible via the infotainment display (available with satellite navigation), the driver can personalise the Sport mode by specifying which functions are activated when the Sport button is pushed. For instance, the electronically controlled dampers, VES, and all- wheel drive can be added or switched off.
At the heart of FlexRide is the Driving Mode Control (DMC) which oversees and executes the system’s settings, allowing the car to react to sudden changes in driving style or emergency situations. For example, if an obstacle must be avoided when the car is in ‘Tour’ mode, various chassis sensors convey this to the DMC and the dampers are adjusted within a split second, optimising acceleration, braking and cornering.
FlexRide is standard on all petrol models, other than the 1.8 ECOTEC, where it is available as an option on SRi models. All 130PS 2.0CDTi SRi models can be specified with FlexRide as an option, while SE, Elite and SRi models powered by the 160PS 2.0CDTi also receive FlexRide as an option.
Both the Insignia’s turbocharged petrol engines are available with the latest-generation advanced all-wheel-drive system. This system will also be available on future, more powerful diesel versions. Called Adaptive 4X4, it is designed to optimise handling and driving stability in all conditions, as well as increase traction at take-off and on slippery surfaces. Under electronic control, the Haldex hydraulic rear clutch unit continuously adjusts and optimises torque distribution between the front and rear axles.
The Adaptive 4X4 control unit is fully integrated with Insignia’s other control systems. It consists of a Power Take-off Unit (PTU) in the front final-drive that transmits engine torque through a prop-shaft to the Rear Drive Module (RDM), which includes a Torque Transfer Device (TTD). A rear electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD) is also standard on all 4X4 Insignia Sports Tourers.
Adaptive 4X4 processes signals from the ESP sensors, the steering angle sensor and accelerator pedal position to adapt power distribution to the prevailing driving conditions. While offering better traction on low friction surfaces, the sophisticated operation of the Adaptive 4X4 improves stability in all situations.
Adaptive 4X4 is coupled to an electronically-controlled eLSD, which takes chassis control a step further. It is installed alongside the RDM and operates via pressurized clutch plates on a principle similar to the larger TTD. In icy or wet split-friction conditions, for example, it uses input from the rear wheel speed sensors and can transfer up to 50% of torque between the drive shafts, to whichever wheel has more grip.
The eLSD also gives the driver enhanced control when cornering hard or completing a high speed manoeuvre, such as a lane change, by momentarily applying more or less torque to either of the wheels to help the rear of the car follow the direction of the front wheels. That way, the eLSD keeps the Insignia better balanced and more tightly controlled without requiring ‘outside’ intervention from ESP.
Optional on Sports Tourer Exclusiv, SE and Elite models (with all engines) is the Towing Pack, which incorporates a trailer stability programme, automatic self-levelling rear suspension and a retractable tow bar. The Sports Tourer’s maximum towing weights, using a braked trailer, range from 1350kgs for the 1.8-litre to 1800kgs for the 2.0-litre Turbo with Adaptive 4X4.
Brakes and wheels
All Insignias come as standard with disc brakes all round, ventilated at the front. The 2.0T and 2.8 V6 Turbo models also have ventilated discs at the rear. Entry level Insignias come as standard with 16-inch rims and 215/60 R 16 V tyres, while the Exclusiv gets 17-inch Structure rims with 225/55 R17 W tyres. The SE and SRi ride on 17-inch alloys with 18-inch alloys as a no-cost option, while SE and Elite models have 18-inch alloys as standard, with 19-inch rims with 245/40 R19 Y tyres as an option. For the first time on a mid-size Vauxhall, 20-inch rims with 245/35 R20 Y tyres are also available as an option on SRi models.
EQUIPMENT & RANGE
– Large selection of options to meet drivers’ needs, including latest AFL lighting
– New infotainment system
– Comprehensive range with five levels of trim
Intelligent Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)
As with Insignia hatch and saloon models, the Sports Tourer benefits from this clever cornering light system, in which the car’s headlamp beam automatically adjusts to prevailing road and weather conditions. The AFL now has a total of nine light functions so drivers can see the road better while, for example, turning a curve or driving on a country road at night. In addition, LED daytime running lights, including automatic light switching, are standard, improving the car’s visibility during the day. AFL is available as an option on all Sports Tourers, but standard on Elite models.
An all-new satellite navigation system, operated through a centrally mounted multi-function controller is available on all Insignias as a cost option. The system includes a seven-inch monitor, 3-D map view and improved scroll and zoom functions. The system, known as DVD800 also includes a port for either iPod or MP3 USB functions. In MP3 mode, the system allows improved access to files and directories, and in iPod mode, full control and read-out is viewed on the 7” colour monitor.
Accessing these features is easier through the Insignia’s new multi- function controller, standard on SE and Elite models. In conjunction with the satellite navigation system, the controller uses a turn/push selection action that is located on the centre console between the front seats (in combination with an electric handbrake). This control benefits tall drivers who sit well back in their seats, and another rotary knob, operating the same functions, can also be found below the monitor.
All Sports Tourers come with high levels of equipment as standard, including ESP, passenger airbag deactivation, automatic headlights, electric driver’s seat height adjuster and electrically adjustable four way lumbar support. Cruise control is also standard across the range, along with front, side and curtain airbags, Isofix on all 3 rear seats, and ABS. S High quality begins with the S entry level, which features chrome highlights with a real metal feel. The interior has metallic trim on the instrument panel, centre console and doors, while the charcoal fabric has a classic ‘labyrinth’ pattern. The S offers generous standard equipment, including comfort items such as manual air conditioning, a CD 300 audio system with seven speakers, power outside mirrors, split rear seat back (60:40), on-board computer, cruise control, steering wheel mounted audio controls and leather trimmed steering wheel. The S comes on 16-inch steel wheels with 215/60 tyres.
Exclusiv The Exclusiv is available in two seat trim colours, charcoal or beige. ‘Dune’ fabric features a pattern inspired by organic graphics in home interiors. As with the S trim, the interior again has metallic inserts on the instrument panel, centre console and doors. Specification over and above the S trim includes single zone climate control, 17-inch structure wheels with 225/55 tyres, a front centre armrest with storage facility, and interior ambient lighting.
SE The SE is also available with a choice of interior seat trim, charcoal or beige, and comes with Morrocana seat bolsters. Standard on the SE are 17- inch 7-spoke alloy wheels with 225/55 tyres; 18-inch alloy wheels with 245/45 tyres are a no-cost option. Also standard is an electronic handbrake, rain sensitive windscreen wipers, electric rear windows, electric passenger’s seat height adjuster and electrically adjustable four way lumbar support. In addition the SE receives an audio upgrade to the CDC400 system with integral six-disc autochanger, MP3 format and DAB digital radio. Flexride is also standard on the 2.0 Turbo petrol engine.
Elite The Elite model builds on the SE, adding full leather seat trim, available in either charcoal or beige, eight way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, dual zone climate control, front and rear parking distance sensors, Intelligent Adaptive Forward Lighting, front fog lights and electrically foldable door mirrors. FlexRide (Adaptive Stability Technology) is standard on the 2.0 Turbo and 2.8 V6 petrol engines, while 4X4 is also standard on the 2.8 V6 model.
SRi The Piano Black décor in the SRi contrasts with silver highlights to create a highly modern and sporting cabin. This is enhanced by the charcoal ‘Vitesse’ fabric found on the SRi’s ergonomic sports seats, and front occupants also benefit from an extendable squab section, the angle of which can be adjusted. A perforated leather sports steering wheel, CD 300 audio and alloy covered pedals are all standard, along with 17-inch 7-spoke alloy wheels with 225/55 tyres (18-inch alloy wheels with 245/45 tyres are a no- cost option), single zone climate control, electric rear windows, front fog lights and a sports chassis 15mm lower than on other trim levels. Ventilated Sport Leather seats are available as an option, which includes an upgrade to dual zone climate control. FlexRide (Adaptive Stability Technology) is again standard on the 2.0 Turbo petrol engine, but is also available as an option on all other SRi engines.
