THIS is the all-new Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer which will receive its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
It's based on new underpinnings and its revised proportions result in more luggage capacity that has increased to 1,640 litres, over 100 litres more than the outgoing model.
The length of the boot has grown by 97mm to 2,005mm and it comes with 40/20/40 foldable seats are available, making it even more practical.
The new model is up to 200 kilograms lighter than its predecessor which allows for high tech features such as the ultra-modern all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring and the new eight-speed automatic transmission to exploit their strengths to the full.
The Insignia Sports Tourer also comes with new technologies that make driving safer, more relaxing and more comfortable than before.
Vauxhall's next generation IntelliLux LED matrix lighting, lane keep assist, head-up display, front and rear seat heating and a heated windscreen are all available on the new Insignia.
Infotainment and connectivity are also on board with the latest generation IntelliLink systems and Vauxhall OnStar assistance system.
It is also the first Vauxhall to be fitted with an active aluminium bonnet to improve pedestrian protection.
A new Personal Assistant service will be launched with the Insignia, enabling the driver or passengers to ask for more help from OnStar advisors such as booking a hotel room.
OnStar also provides a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices to keep all occupants connected while on the move.
