New Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
Available to order now
Vauxhall’s Insignia Country Tourer is available to order now with prices from £25,349. This new model is based on the Sports Tourer model but with all wheel drive. It boasts tougher styling and higher ground clearance and is available in two trim levels.
The Country Tourer was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show and received a great reception. If a crossover is on your shopping list then this new model is worth considering as it is priced approximately £5000 cheaper than its D-segment crossover rivals. It is £5000 cheaper than the Audi A4 Allroad and £2400 less than a VW Passat Alltrack.
The Country Tourer is priced from £25,349 to £29,709 on-the-road and the Country Tourer Nav is priced from £26,499 to £30,859 on-the-road. Generous specifications include bi-xenon adaptive front lighting, power tailgate and front and rear parking sensors. On top of this the Country Toured Nav gets Navi 900 IntelliLink sat nav with 8-inch colour touch screen, multi-function touch-pad controller and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster as standard.
Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s Head of Carline Brand 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.”
A choice of two powerful 2.0 CDTi engines is offered including a 163PS with start/stop and a hot 195 PS BiTurbo unit. The 163PS engine is available with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, and the BiTurbo comes with the automatic gearbox only.

Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director said ‘the new Insignia range embodies all that Vauxhall stands for: powerful design, innovative technology, terrific value and driving pleasure. The Insignia’s become a design classic in its class, and I'm confident that the new range will appeal to both existing customers as well as those who would never have considered buying a Vauxhall before.’
