The Insignia Grand Sport will also become available as a Buick in the United States or China and as a Holden in Australia – so let’s see what customers should pay for it.
The German automaker has recently introduced the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport, as well as its more practical Sport Tourer wagon counterpart, and now we get to know the bill for both. Go for the sedan and you’ll pay at home in Germany at least 25,940 euro – while the ST goes for a starting price of 26,940 euro, with orders now out in the open. The new Insignia comes with a complete new generation and architecture – and it’s larger but lighter than before. The sedan ditches 386 pounds (175 kilograms) compared to the previous generation, and the wagon is no less than 441 pounds (200 kg) slimmer as well.
The new owners will also have to make their minds about the powertrains – they can choose between manual and eight-speed automatic for the transmission, front or all-wheel drive with torque vectoring. The engines include a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline packing a meager 138 horsepower (103 kilowatts) or a better 164 hp (122 kW). The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder meanwhile comes with 256 hp (191 kW). In Europe the bread and butter will still be the diesel engines – 1.6-liter unit with 109 hp (81 kW) or 2.0-liter with 168 hp (125 kW).
