That was kind of to be expected. A few weeks ago Opel already showed the hatchback Version of the Insignia GSi. The Combi-... sorry ... the Sports-Tourer version of the new middle class model would follow, was as safe as the Amen in the Church. So please be nice, here it is: The new Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer. Bright red, with thicker skirts, roof spoiler and a brand-new 2.0-Liter Biturbo Diesel under the hood.
The diesel develops 210 HP at 4,000 tours and shows off from just 1,500 Rpm with a maximum torque of 480 Newton meters. Thus it is, according to Opel, in a rather leisurely 7.9 seconds from 0-100 km/h, the maximum speed is 231 km/h. The standard consumption is 7.3 liters. More forward Forschheit urge? The 260-HP turbocharged gasoline engine you get in the GSi-combined, of course. He makes the 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and manages to 245 km/h top. All this at a fuel consumption of 8.7 liters.
Like the sedan, the Insignia GSi Sports Tourer comes standard with eight-speed automatic, Torque-Vectoring all-wheel-drive (similar to the Ford-Focus-RS-System with two force distributing multi-disc clutches on the rear axle) and an adaptive sport suspension velvet Ten-millimetre lower ride height. Other GSi Features 20-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Tires, a Brembo four-piston brakes, the gearshift paddles on the sports steering wheel and a fourth driving mode (in addition to Standard, Tour and Sport) in the name of Competition, when the ESP is larger the yaw angle in the case of switched-off traction, according to Opel, "the experienced driver is now in control". The ambitious dad may come with his family Transporter now so even a little cross. All this, as before, with 560 to 1.665 litres of boot space. To see for the first time, the Opel Insignia GSi Sports Tourer like its hatchback brother, GSi Grand Sport 14. - 24. September at the Frankfurt motor show. The prices are not fixed yet.(sw)
