Vauxhall Combines 160HP 2.0L Diesel with 4x4 System on Insignia Range

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

GM's UK division Vauxhall is expanding the Insignia's range (yes, that's the new Buick Regal in the States) with its first-ever passenger car to combine all-wheel-drive and diesel, the new CDTi 4x4 model that will hit British showrooms in September in four-door saloon, five-door fastback and Sports Tourer versions.

Up until now, the Insignia's Adaptive 4x4 system was only available with the 2.0- and 2.8-litre petrol engines. According to Vauxhall, sales analysis shows that 21 per cent of all 2.0-litre Insignias sold to date in the UK have been 4x4 models.

The Insignia's 2.0-liter CDTi diesel engine produces 160-horsepower at 4,000rpm, with maximum torque at 350Nm / 258 lb-ft (up to 380Nm with overboost) at 1,750rpm.

When combined with a manual gearbox, the top-of-the-line diesel accelerates the Insignia Sports Tourer 4x4 to 60mph (96km/h) in 9.8 seconds and allows a top speed of 130mph (209km/h) with a combined fuel consumption of 47.1mpg UK (equal to 39.2mpg US or 6.0lt/100km).

The 2.0L diesel engine is available with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Detailed specs and pricing will be announced closer to the Insignia CDTi 4x4's market launch in September.
