Insignia estate photos released

Vauxhall’s Insignia estate, Sports Tourer, will go on UK sale in the second quarter of 2009.

Debuting at the Paris motor show in October, it will have two engines – a turbodiesel and a smaller capacity turbocharged petrol unit, as well as the five motors available from the saloon and hatchback models.

A green version, with lower emissions and fuel consumption, called the ecoFLEX Sports Tourer, will also become available.

Mark Adams, Vice-President of GM Europe Design, said it was “a stand-alone model and not simply an estate version of the saloon. All the bodywork aft of the B-pillars is unique to the Sports Tourer.

“We’ve also ensured that its design combines the sculptural artistry and technical precision found in the saloon and hatch models.”
