Interested buyers could now order Vauxhall’s Insignia Country Tourer at a starting price of £25,349 on-the-road. The Insignia Country Tourer is derived from the Sports Tourer model, but features all-wheel drive, higher ground clearance and tougher styling. It was well-received during its unveiling at the recently held 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Interested buyers could choose between two trim levels. The Country Tourer trim, with a price range of between £25,349 and £29,709 on-the-road, features generous standard specifications like bi-xenon adaptive front lighting, power tailgate and front and rear parking sensors.
The Country Tourer Nav, with a price range of between £26,499 and £30,859 on-the-road, features the same standard specs as the other trim, but with the addition of Navi 900 IntelliLink sat nav with 8-inch color touch screen, multi-function touch-pad controller and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster.
Customers could choose from two 2.0 CDTi engines. The 163PS version is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission while the 195PS BiTurbo is paired with the automatic gearbox only. The pricing for the entry-level Insignia Country Tourer Nav is up to £5,000 cheaper than its D-segment crossover rivals like the Audi A4 Allroad. Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand, remarked that the Insignia Country Tourer seems set to “shake up” the D-segment crossover sector with competitive pricing and generous standard equipment levels.
