UNDERCUT: Country Tourer priced from £23,349

Vauxhall’s new Insignia Country Tourer is now open for orders, priced from £23,349.

Up to £5,000 cheaper than its D-segment crossover rivals, the SUV-inspired, all-purpose vehicle is available in two trim levels and two powertrains.

The vehicle is based on the Sports Tourer model, but offers all-wheel-drive, higher ground clearance and tougher styling.

Stuart Harris, Head of Carline Brand at Vauxhall, said: “With competitive pricing and generous standard equipment levels, the Insignia Country Tourer looks set to shake up the D-segment crossover sector.

“The Insignia Country Tourer is perfect for a winter holiday, on snowy roads, or simply when the going gets tough.

“Even on urban roads its robust looks give it strong stand-out appeal.”

The standard Country Tourer specification features bi-xenon adaptive front lighting, power tailgate and front and rear parking sensors.

Country Tourer Nav, the higher-level trim, is priced from £26,499 and adds Navi 900 IntelliLink navigation, multi-function touch-pad controller and an eight-inch digital instrument cluster.

Both models have a choice of two 2.0 CDTi engines; a 163PS with start/stop, and a 195PS BiTurbo unit.

The 163PS engine is available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the BiTurbo comes with the automatic gearbox only.

First deliveries of the Insignia Country Tourer are due in dealers in January.
