Here is the first official video starring the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer, a special variant of the model designed and devolped for the customers who enjoy a little bit of off-road adventure.
The model will make its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and with its higher ground clearance, protective under-body guards front and rear, prominent wheel-arch, lower body cladding and dual exhaust tailpipes will surely be way more impctful than its Sports Tourer sibling, which is an elegant family and business station wagon.
In terms of engine line-up, the Opel Insignia Country Tourer will initially be available with a 2.
0-liter SIDI turbocharged engine producing 250 jorsepower and 400 Nm of torque, a 2.
0-liter CDTI delivering 163 horsepower and 350 Nm (or 380 Nm with the optional overboost) and the powerful 2.
0-liter BiTurbo CDTI unit, credited with an output of 195 horsepower and 400 Nm of peak torque.
0 CDTI and 2.
0 SIDI Turbo engines can be configured with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.
0 BiTurbo CDTI comes with the six-speed auto exclusively.
Design-wise, the a signature Opel grille is now wider and deeper, providing the frontal styling with a distinctive appeal.
Another characteristic feature is the anthracite-colored protective cladding on the side sills and lower body sections, which also gives the wheel-arches a more pronounced, flared look.
Front and rear light units are also new: the tinted headlamps, with embedded chrome accents, incorporate wing-style LED daytime running lights (depending on trim version), while LED technology has been used for the taillights too.
Prices and equipment details will be announced at the world premiere in Frankfurt.
