Vauxhall Insignia


Codename 47
Vauxhall Insignia

The new Vauxhall Insignia launches with a range of five engines, all of which meet Euro 5 emissions standards. The three petrol engines range from 140 to 260PS and two new 2.0-litre turbo-diesels are available with either 130 or 160PS. All engines are highly competitive in terms of CO2 and fuel consumption in their respective power output categories. In Spring 2009, two additional powertrains - a 180PS 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol and a BiTurbo version of the 2.0 CDTi with 190PS - will become available. An ecoFLEX version with low CO2 emissions will also join the lineup.

Apart from the auto-only 260PS V6 model, each engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, with all but the 1.8-litre petrol model being available with the optional six-speed automatic transmission. Adaptive 4x4 is standard on 260PS V6 models, and optional on 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol cars.

2.8 V6 Turbo ECOTEC

The Insignia's most powerful engine at launch will be the 2.8 V6 Turbo, which develops 260PS and 350Nm of torque between 1900 and 4500rpm.
