The Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is the stylish new range topper with a premium offering.
The latest addition to the all-new Insignia range offers a country tourer with all-wheel drive that delivers torque where it is needed and more ground clearance than its siblings.
There’s more space in the new offering when compared to its predecessor which is down to the all-new architecture and a raft of innovative technologies.
There’s also, to help its main purpose, all-round black protective cladding as well as rear and front skid plates. The image is of a rugged and tough off-roader.
