Leasing a Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
Engines and performance for the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
There's one engine to choose from for the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer and that's an impressive turbo - or biturbo - charged 2.0 litre diesel unit which is mated to either a six-speed manual box or an eight-speed automatic option. The engine delivers lots of torque and is a nifty performer around town. However, it is an ideal engine for motorway cruising to deliver peerless performance for those who need to lug families or big loads around the country in comfort. The biturbo engine produces 210 PS and will return around 38 mpg, while the turbocharged version produces 170 PS and offers better economy at 48 mpg.
Equipment and handling
Despite the size, the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer is a comfortable and easy car to drive and for those who need to tackle muddy lanes or fields, then there's an excellent all-wheel drive version offering more ground clearance and torque vectoring so the power is delivered to the wheel that needs it. Relaunched in 2018, the all-new model features a wide range of innovative technology, including protective body cladding and skid plates. The engine is responsive and the steering is light, offering good feedback and there's no danger of understeering in corners since the torque vectoring plays a part to control body roll. The 'FlexRide' chassis also works well to deliver improved driving behaviour. The Tourer has been designed with practicality in mind, so the boot is easy to access and load and also utilises keyless open and start. Roof railings are fitted as standard and can carry loads of up to 100 kg. However, the real delight is in the cabin which is comfortable and well-designed with ergonomic front seats and lots of technology. Among the assistant systems is the IntelliLux LED matrix lights, a head-up display, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and automated steering correction. There's also rear cross traffic alert for when the big car is being reversed out of a parking space. There's a lot to like about the Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer which offers families a roomy estate with pleasant looks and for those wanting an impressive vehicle for long journeys - and which may include a tricky last mile along a rutted or muddy country lane - then this estate is hard to beat.
