2018 Insignia Country Tourer first view

While Vauxhall’s and Opel’s marketing departments will probably portray the new Insignia Country Tourer as perfect for people who like to explore the great outdoors, it’s also very suitable for urban environments.

Following a familiar ‘rugged estate’ recipe, features include a 20 mm (0.8”) higher ride height (better for coping with pot-holed city streets) and black plastic bodywork cladding (perfect for fending off other drivers’ errant parking manoeuvres).

Rough-terrain ability should be fine for most owners, too. All-wheel drive is fitted, along with a torque vectoring system that utilises two electrically-controlled multi-plate clutches on the rear axle instead of a traditional differential.

The 2018 Insignia Country Tourer is due to appear in public for the first time at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show. Prices have yet to be announced.
