World Premier of Four New Vauxhall Models at Frankfurt Motor Show 2017

World Premier of Four New Vauxhall Models at Frankfurt Motor Show 2017

Vauxhall is to world premiere four new models at next month’s 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, including the Grandland X SUV, the Insignia GSi and Country Tourer, and the Vivaro Tourer business shuttle.

The new models will be unveiled during Vauxhall/Opel’s press conference at its “X-Ville” (Crossville) Stand D09 in Hall 8.0, on Tuesday 12th September (09:10 – 09:25).

Grandland X

The all-new Grandland X SUV is the third member of Vauxhall’s ‘X’ family, which also includes the Mokka X and the Crossland X.

With a sporty design and off-road looks, the Grandland X has elevated seating for five people, generous luggage space, good all-round visibility and a raft of safety technologies. At 4.48 metres long, it is the largest SUV in Vauxhall’s range, offering even more cabin space than the 20 centimetre-shorter Mokka X and Crossland X.

Insignia GSi

Also debuting at Frankfurt will be the all-new Insignia GSi, which delivers high levels of performance through all-wheel drive, a new chassis and Brembo brakes, and is powered by a refined 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine.

The performance variant of Vauxhall’s latest flagship model has an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which can be operated via a paddle-shift on the steering wheel to provide a more active and responsive driving experience. Staying true to the latest-generation Insignia range, the GSi combines lightweight design and a low centre of gravity with turbocharged power. These factors result in excellent balance and a favourable power-to-weight ratio.

Insignia Country Tourer

The latest addition to the all-new Insignia range, Vauxhall’s all-wheel drive Insignia Country Tourer is also set to debut in Frankfurt.

The Country Tourer is more spacious and considerably lighter than its predecessor, thanks to an all-new architecture, and comes with a wide range of innovative technologies. With all-round black protective cladding and silver front and rear skid plates, the newcomer has a tough and rugged off-road appearance.

Vauxhall Exclusive

After being announced at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Vauxhall gives a preview of what its new Exclusive trim could look like for Insignia buyers.

The personalisation concept will allow Insignia buyers to choose exactly the colour they want. A favourite colour, perhaps, or a colour coordinated to a customer’s classic car already waiting in the garage – all these shades can serve as the sample for a bespoke paint tone. And while the normal Insignia models feature a lot of chrome, the High Gloss Black Pack gives Exclusive a sporty touch with high-gloss black grille bar and window trim strips, exterior mirrors and much more. And a complementary design from a range of light alloy wheels can also be selected.

The Exclusive line will also soon be expanded with an even larger selection of leather interior options and decorative design elements – resulting in unique vehicles personalised according to their owner’s taste. In addition, every Insignia ordered as an Exclusive comes with a host of standard trim features on top including Navi 900 IntelliLink with an eight-inch colour touchscreen and rear privacy glass.

Vivaro Tourer

The last of Vauxhall’s Frankfurt unveils are two new up-level Vivaro variants: the Tourer Elite and Combi Plus.

Aimed at the business shuttle market, the Tourer Elite model will be available with a 1.6-litre CDTi BiTurbo engine with 125PS or 145PS, in either L1 or L2 body.

And designed for customers after a more generously specified combi, the Combi Plus is more car-like, and less van-like than the standard Vivaro Combi.
