Five Vauxhall / Opel launches planned for 2017

Additional products and a bid to become 'semi-premium' underpin a reworked strategy for General Motor's European brands.

Leading the shake-up is the Insignia Grand Sport. This all-new five-door D-segment contender, which boasts a coupé silhouette, is both larger and lighter than the current Insignia that it's due to replace. A public debut is scheduled for the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Soon afterwards, an estate version called Insignia Sports Tourer is going to arrive. Then, later in 2017, the off-road inspired Insignia Country Tourer with standard all-wheel drive will join the line-up.

Vauxhall / Opel realises that plenty of buyers now want a crossover rather than an MPV or a mundane hatchback. So, to help meet that demand, the just-announced Crossland X is set to sit alongside the Mokka X in the revamped range.

In a similar vein, a C-segment crossover is also coming next year. For now, hardly anything has been revealed about this extra model, but we do know it'll be similar in size to the Zafira Tourer.
